All-rounder Yuvraj Singh and pacer Zaheer Khan have not given up on their cricketing career yet after being dropped from Team India. The two players have signed up for a 42-day training in France under Tim Exeter, who heads the Metasport Systems.

The duo are training for four to five hours a day. “This training schedule of four-five hours every day is extremely exhausting and leaves you drained. But with each passing day I am feeling fitter and stronger,” Yuvraj was quoted as saying by cricketnext.

The images posted by Exeter show Zaheer and Yuvraj working out in the gym. The duo are staying as paying guests with a family at Brive-la-Gaillarde in South France.

Both Zaheer and Yuvraj were part of India’s 2011 World Cup winning squad but were eventually dropped after few matches for poor form while fresh legs were inducted into the squad.
