It was a brilliant comeback by batsman Yuvraj Singh as he hit a scintillating 150 in the second One-Day International (ODI) against England here in Cuttack after a poor start by India.

The crafty left hander hit the English bowlers all over the park as he built a steady partnership with former captain MS Dhoni, who too went on to score a century. However, the special knock came to an end when Yuvraj was caught behind while batting on 150 (127 balls).

Yuvraj, single-handedly put India in the driving seat after after the team lost 3 quick wickets of KL Rahul, Shikhar Dhawan and skipper Virat Kohli with just 25 runs on the board 

England skipper Eoin Morgan won the toss and elected to bowl ear;ier in the day.
