Former Australia paceman Damien Fleming has said addition of Yuvraj Singh and Ashish Nehra to the side was an indication that India's preparations for the upcoming World Twenty20 are in full swing. 

"This T20 series is obviously more important than the ODIs prior," said Fleming.

"And this is why they have flown the senior, more experienced players in, to start ticking some boxes for the World T20, especially the players they definitely want for that tournament.

"It's pretty evident India would want to win it at home," he added.
