India were brilliant in their victory over England earlier in the week, assisted by a dazzling innings from Yuvraj Singh, who scored 50 off 12 balls and hit six sixes off one over.

ICC World 20-20, IND vs AUS, Semi Final: Dhoni, Yuvraj set for Twenty20 semi-final

India Cricket team Australia Cricket team Captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni and key batsman Yuvraj Singh will take the field in Saturday's Twenty20 semi-final against Australia after recovering from injuries.
Yuvraj missed Thursday's crucial encounter against South Africa due to tendonitis in his left elbow sustained against England the previous day in which he hit Stuart Broad for six sixes in an over. Dhoni, suffering back pain, handed the wicket-keeping gloves to Dinesh Karthick in the 37-run win over South Africa which propelled India to the top of group E in the Super Eights round.
"I am still smiling so I will hopefully play the next match," said Dhoni. "It was just a strain in the lower back, on the right hand side. I had the luxury of having Karthick in the side, who is a specialist keeper. "I did not want to aggravate the injury. I think hopefully it will be fine before the semi-final."
Dhoni said Yuvraj also will be fit against the formidable Australians, adding the left-hander was rested against South Africa as a precautionary measure. India team (from): M.S. Dhoni (Captain), Ajit Agarkar, Gautam Gambhir, Dinesh Karthik, Irfan Pathan, Yusuf Pathan, Virender Sehwag, Joginder Sharma, Harbhajan Singh, Rohit Sharma, R.P. Singh, Yuvraj Singh, S.
