Well, when it comes from the mouth of an excellent all rounder and perhaps one of the bravest player of Team India during the recent times, it certainly compels the reader to pay attention towards the opinion expressed by Yuvraj Singh. Yuvraj ,to whom I fondly remember not only for smashing 6 sixes off 6 balls delivered by Stuart Broad and for his pivotal role in lifting two world cups, but it is his courage in fighting the deadly disease of cancer that he has become an icon for million of the youngsters.
While talking to Indian Express, Yuvraj Singh shared his opinion on the performance of the two captains that is Sourav Ganguly and MS Dhoni in a rather open and merit based manner. It is pertinent to add that Yuvraj Singh had excelled during the regime of Sourav Ganguly. Yuvraj said “My favourite captain was Sourav Ganguly. I learnt a lot from him and my career flourished under him the most. He infused the feeling in us that we could win a series abroad. Gary Kirsten was a great coach. I excelled while he was the coach.”
Yuvraj Singh who has gone through a heroic welcome to the stone pelting incident at his house in Chandigarh, clarifies “People came down heavily on me after the final. But they did not give credit to the Sri Lankan bowlers for performing well. The conditions were tough to bat, the ball was not coming onto the bat so well. I know this that I tried hard.”
Expressing himself clearly about his chances in getting selected in the team he said “When it comes to the selection process, that is left to the selectors. I do not think about selection or anything related to it. My job is to do well and work towards excellence.”
Underlining the contribution of Dhoni, Yuvraj admitted, “I think Dhoni is doing the job quite well at the moment. He has been instrumental in many India wins. He is fit enough to do the job in all three formats, then why make the change. He has done a commendable job when it comes to captaining India.”
