Cricketer Yuvraj Singh has been included in the list of 30 probable players, to play for India in the upcoming ICC World T20 in Sri Lanka.

If he is chosen, the tournament will mark Yuvraj's return to world class cricket after recovering from a rare cancer called mediastinal seminoma.

The 30-year-old underwent three months of treatment in the US earlier this year.

Yuvraj played his last international match in November 2011.

He was the man of the tournament in last year's World Cup, helping India win the trophy for the first time since 1983.

Others included in the list of 30 are Indian captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni, Virender Sehwag and Harbhajan Singh.

Two newcomers, Mandeep Singh and Naman Ojha, have also been included in the list.

The tournament will be played in Sri Lanka in September and October and will include the world's top 12 teams.
