Yuvraj Singh has pulled in a snippy comeback for the Indian team in advance of ‘coup de grace’ platform of the 2014 ICC World Twenty20. Captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni believes that this is the most assertive and inspirational part of the Indian team.
Yuvraj stormed on the Aussies with a smashing 60 off 43 balls and led the India to register a 73-runs clean sweep over Australia. India has taken the top position in Group 2 to fourth successive win.
“Yuvraj getting back into form was truly serious. We all recognize what sort of a player Yuvi is. I believe this format ideally suits it (getting back into shape). He decided to give himself time to make for himself in. In the middle over’s he wasn’t able to go around, but in the end over’s we knew the firepower we had,” Dhoni stated at the post-match presentation ceremony.
Shikhar Dhawan has been decided to take a rest by the captain as he is not quite good shape now and that makes this left-handed batter to bring to mind at his performances. Ajinkya Rahane has surrogates Dhawan in the team. “Rahane opens in difficult conditions. We have discovered that in the Indian Premier League, he is one the most consistent hitter. This (replacing Shikhar with Rahane) also gives Shikhar some free time to opine about his game. So both players will benefit,” he pronounced.
Furthermore, Aussie captain George Bailey, wept over the shrinkage of ‘match-sense’ that is evidenced by his batsmen in the competition. “I don’t think we’ve been fans of the direction we’ve been going. We have demonstrated lack of game sense on a number of occasions. At that place was not much bend in the grille today. We could have batted better,” said Bailey.
Concurrently, off-spinner R Ashwin has nabbed his repeated successive man-of-the-match prize, said the cross they were defending was little above par. “I though 160 has been just above par,” Ashwin, who claimed four wickets and gave away just 11 runs, said.
He pronounced, on his bowling, “You have to shorten the width for the right-hander; the path I’m bowling is not too wide outside off. We were stretched quite a bit while batting but we’re playing well the way we are.”
