Former India batsman Yuvraj Singh has delivered a sensational statement regarding his playing career under different captains of India. The World Cup-winner enjoyed a illustrious international career and is regarded as one of the biggest match-winners in the history of Indian cricket.
He made his debut in 2000 under the captaincy of Sourav Ganguly as a 19-year old and soon became an integral part of the team. He then played under the captaincy of Rahul Dravid, MS Dhoni and Virat Kohli. Yuvraj enjoyed some of his most memorable moments under Dhoni’s captaincy.
He helped India win the 2007 T20 World Cup and the 2011 World Cup under Dhoni’s captaincy. But in a sensational statement, Yuvraj Singh has said that he got little support from the likes of MS Dhoni and Virat Kohli. Speaking to Sportstar, the legendary batsman said that he has more fond memories playing under Ganguly rather than any other captain because of the support he received from his first India captain.
“I have played under Sourav (Ganguly) and had a lot of support from him. Then Mahi (MS Dhoni) took over. It’s a difficult choice to make between Sourav and Mahi. I have more memories of time under Sourav because of the support he gave me. I didn’t have that kind of support from Mahi and Virat (Kohli),” said Yuvraj Singh.
Well when Virat Kohli took charge of the ODI and T20I teams in 2017, Yuvraj Singh was recalled into the ODI team and he impressed straightaway by playing a career-best knock of 150 against England. He was retained in the team for the Champions Trophy as well as the tour of West Indies but failed miserably with the bat.
The southpaw was dropped from the team after the tour of West Indies and was never recalled again. He eventually retired from the game last year after failing to find a place in the World Cup squad.
