Yuvraj Singh has been the man for India’s success in both the world cups under MS Dhoni captaincy. He has been the star for India, who ended up collecting man of the tournament awards. Meanwhile, he speaks on the upcoming ICC World Cup 2019 and cited that the former skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni is very important for the Indian team.
MS Dhoni wasn’t at his best in the last one year, especially, in ODI format. However, he returned with a stunning performance against the Australian team and then carried it in the series against Kiwis as well.
MS Dhoni has a great cricketing brain: Yuvraj Singh
The stylish southpaw quoted that the former skipper got the best cricketing brain, which will be pretty useful during the crunch situations of the game. Further, he believes that the presence of MS Dhoni is a must in order to see India doing well on the field.
Yuvraj Singh also believes that the management should leave the batting order to Dhoni himself. He also cited that the presence of Mahendra Singh Dhoni will benefit Virat Kohli while leading the team, especially, during pressure situations.
“I think Mahi (Dhoni) has a great cricket brain. And as a wicket-keeper, you are in the best position to monitor the game and he has done that fantastically over the years. He has been a great captain. (He is) with the young players and guiding Virat (Kohli) all the time,” Yuvraj said.
“So, I feel his presence is very important in decision-making. He had a fantastic tournament in Australia and it is good to see him hit the ball how he used to do, and I wish him all the best,” added the batsman, who had hit six sixes in an over during the World T20 in 2007.
Let MS Dhoni decide where he wants to play:
When asked about the batting position of Dhoni, Yuvraj asked the team management to leave the decision to the veteran cricketer. He is confident that MS Dhoni can do the job at any position for India.
“That you have to ask Dhoni, which number he has to bat,” he added while speaking to the reporters.
Well, it is pleasing to see Yuvraj Singh backing MS Dhoni for the upcoming ICC World Cup 2019. Meanwhile, Yuvraj Singh would like to be in the contention by performing in upcoming IPL 2019.
