London - India batsman Yuvraj Singh has been called up to play for Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) in March's Emirates Twenty20 tournament in Dubai, the invitational team announced on Thursday.

He joins Alastair Cook, Michael Carberry and Nick Compton in the MCC squad for the tournament, which also features English county sides Lancashire, Yorkshire and Sussex.

Singh, who most recently played for Punjab in the Ranji Trophy, played against the MCC last year, scoring 132 for the Rest of the World XI in the Lord's Bicentenary match.

"I am very excited about being part of the squad for this tournament, and I'd like to thank MCC for offering me the chance to play out in Dubai again," Singh said in a statement.

"There are some great players in the squad so we stand a good chance of winning the competition."

The Emirates T20 tournament precedes the day-night Champion County match between MCC and Yorkshire, which acts as a curtain-raiser for the new English season.
