[Andre] Russell has played for his national side and Beaton is the future fast bowler for the West Indies. He reminds me of Curtly. Obviously Curtly was great, but I think he has lot of potential and I think it was a very good attack," he said at the post-match press conference.<br /> <br /> Yuvraj said hitting a hundred in the first game of the season was special.<br /> <br /> "I think I have worked hard in my off-season on my batting and other skills in last couple of weeks," he said.<br /> <br /> "Robin [Uthappa] and Mandy gave us a good start which allowed me and Yusuf [Pathan] to catch up at the end."<br /> <br /> Yuvraj showered <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/cricket-articles/Hope-to-see-Zaheer-Khan-and-Yuvraj-Singh-back-at-their-very-best-Tim-Exeter/30188" target="_blank">praise on his private French trainer Tim Exeter</a> for making him and <a href="/tags/Zaheer-Khan/post" target="_blank">Zaheer Khan</a>, who is also on a comeback trail, match fit.<br /> <br /> "It was organised by <a href="/tags/NCA/post" target="_blank">National Cricket Academy</a> (NCA) physio Ashish Kaushik. NCA has always supported me and the people who believed in me. I thank them all," he said.<br /> <br /> Yuvraj said he has shed a few kilos and feeling stronger and moving quickly on the ground. "I was always quick on the field and I just worked on those aspects and I am feeling better," he added.<br /> <br /> Asked to comment on on not being picked for four-day matches, Yuvraj said he was least bothered of the kind of matches as long as he was scoring runs.<br /> <br /> "Boss, I have got an opportunity to play. I don't know whether it is four-day match and Test cricket I am just happy I am playing and scoring runs. I don't know what is going to happen in the future," he said.<br /> <br /> Admitting the pressure a player faces while making a comeback, Yuvraj said he accepts such challenges which bring best out of him and exuded confidence he would get national selectors' nod.<br /> <br /> He also welcomed facing challenge from performing youngsters, saying it was good for the future of Indian cricket.
