Yuvraj Singh was denied a fairytale comeback by the narrowest of margins as New Zealand won the second T20 International in Chennai by a single run. Yuvraj was out for 34 off 26 balls, leaving Rohit Sharma needing to hit six off the final two balls to complete the win. He could only manage a pair of twos as James Franklin held his nerve to end with figures of two for 26 from his four overs.
Yuvraj Singh's international cricketing comeback has been delayed by the weather after India's opening match in their two-match Twenty20 International series against New Zealand was abandoned without a ball bowled due to heavy rain.The match in Visakhapatnam - which was hosting its maiden T20 International - was abandoned without even the toss taking place as the heavy rain which had been a feature for much of the week in the lead-up to the match failed to relent.

It is the absorbing second Test match between New Zealand and India in Bangalore that provides this week's winner. Ross Taylor hit a sublime 113 in the visitors' total of 365, but that effort was bettered by Virat Kohli, who scored 154 runs across two innings to help India to a series clean sweep.
India capitalised on the excellent start given to them by Virender Sehwag and Gautam Gambhir to chase down the 261 runs that they needed for victory in the second Test against New Zealand in Bangalore. Jeetan Patel kept the visitors in the hunt with three wickets, but India's sixth-wicket pair of MS Dhoni and Virat Kohli added an unbroken 94 to ease them home by five wickets.
New Zealand's middle-order all made starts without going on to make a telling contribution, but it was enough to set up what will an intriguing fourth innings run chase for India in the second Test in Bangalore. Tim Southee had bowled an inspired new-ball spell in the morning to earn New Zealand a slender 12-run first innings lead, which by stumps they had extended to 244 for the loss of nine second innings wickets.
Half-centuries from Virat Kohli and Suresh Raina were leading India's strong reply to New Zealand when play closed on day two of the second Test in Bangalore.Kohli was unbeaten on 93 and Raina made 55 as India closed on 283 for five, just 82 runs short of New Zealand's first innings score of 365.
