P A Murali, the Indian Premiere League (IPL) team Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) director today said the tactics behind setting Yuvraj Singh free was to secure that the purse of other teams’ are weary which would help them get better players for Indian Premier League (IPL) season 8.

Murali said here at the IPL-8 auction that the basic tactics to release Yuvraj was to secure that the wallet of other teams are defeated so that they can able to buy better players while going forward. Murali also said the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) would have liked to have Yuvraj Singh back in the team but sadly it did not happen.

He said directly that they would have liked to have him back in the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) team, but sadly it did not materialize. All-rounder Yuvraj became Indian Premier League’s costliest ever buy as his price raised to Rs. 16 crore from Delhi Daredevils. Preity Zinta, co-owner of Kings XI Punjab, also manifested her team’s wish to have Yuvraj in the team.

He added that when they started Yuvraj Singh was with Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB). It is just not Murali, but the squad is very fond of him. Now he is such a big name, it is very tough to buy him. So, they tried and the price he went for was surprising and they will always want him.

However, Preity said the team management wanted Murali Vijay in the team. Answering to a question, RCB director Murali said since the skipper and the coach were not around, they had to call Ray Jennings and Virat Kohli to keep them informed about what they are doing.

He said that they did not have the coach and the skipper with them, so it is crucial both the skipper and the coach should be aligned with what they do. Chennai Super Kings Coach Stephen Fleming manifested his pleasure to get back Mike Hussey into the team as he would boost the batting line up.

Stephen Fleming was quoted saying: “It is good. He is obviously covered for our batting. He was a key component of our side for so long. I don’t think he is done yet. He has some energy left in his legs, and we are happy to have him back in the side.
