India were handed a mini-scare ahead of their ICC Champions Trophy 2017 campaign after all-rounder Yuvraj Singh missed a two-hour training session at Lord’s on Friday, just two days before the team’s warm-up match against New Zealand.

The rest of the Virat Kohli-led side trained at the Lord’s Cricket Ground toiled it out at the nets, before heading back to the team hotel.

As per a Mumbai Mirror report, the reason behind Yuvraj’s absence is fever. The team management is expecting the southpaw to recover in a day’s time, the report stated.
