India vs England: Yuvraj Singh's recall hailed as 'belated wedding gift' as Twitterati react

The Indian squads for the upcoming ODIs and T20Is against England were named on Friday, after the Lodha panel gave the go-ahead for the selection to occur. MS Dhoni relinquished his captaincy, but not his place in the side as he was retained in both 15-man squads. Newly appointed captain Virat Kohli will lead a team with a healthy mix of both youthful exuberance and aged experience, with youngsters like Rishabh Pant and veterans like Yuvraj Singh and Ashish Nehra making the cut.



Naturally, the announcement of the squads generated its fair share of reactions, and here are some of the best from social media.

Gaurav Kapur though was particularly happy with the inclusion of the veteran players in the side.
