Yuvraj Singh is scheduled to drive down from Mumbai to Pune to watch the Pune Warriors host the Deccan Chargers at the Subrata Roy Sahara stadium tonight.
Yuvraj, who led Pune Warriors in the last season, was replaced by Sourav Ganguly as the captain of the team as was he under treatment for a rare germ cell cancer and is currently recuperating.
This will be Yuvraj's second public appearance after returning to India from the United states earlier this month where he got treated for his ailment. Last week he was in Bahrain for the Formula One race.
Before the IPL, Pune team owner Subrata Roy had said he did not want Yuvraj to take field till he was fully fit. He had also said that Yuvraj will be paid the full amount of his IPL fee for this season.
Michael Clarke was roped in by Sahara as Yuvraj's replacement. He will be joining the team next month as he is currently playing a Test series against the West Indies.
