“Yuvraj has played well under MS Dhoni, as far as I have seen Yuvraj’s career, the way he has batted in 2007 and 2008 onwards it has been impeccable,” Nehra said on Star Sports show Cricket Connected.

“And in 2011 we saw how he braved his sickness and played brilliantly under Dhoni,” the 40-year-old added. “I feel every player has their own choice of a favourite captain when they play for 16 years and Yuvraj played well under Dhoni according to me,” he further added.

Yuvraj Singh brought down the curtains on his career after playing 304 ODIs, 40 Tests and 58 T20Is. He scored over 10,000 runs in international cricket and will go down as one of the finest all-rounders to have donned the Indian jersey.
