The 2011 World Cup-winning hero Yuvraj Singh believes it is time for India to win a major accolade and add one more honour to their coveted trophy cabinet. Considering the kind of talent and quality in the brigade, India team holds all the aces to win a major title according to Yuvraj Singh.
It has been almost seven years since India won a major trophy when they beat England in the ICC Champions Trophy 2013 final in England. Since then, it has been an array of disappointments coupled with failures for the Indian team.
“Of course they should (win a major title). With the amount of talent that they have in the form of the players and squad, they really should,” the former elegant southpaw Yuvraj Singh told Sport360 on the sidelines of the Expo 2020 Dubai cricket final.
2019 World Cup planning was really poor: Yuvraj Singh
India suffered a heartbreaking defeat at the hands of New Zealand at the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 semi-final held in England last year. Yuvraj Singh feels that there was no strategic planning in the middle-order while adding that the team management made some harsh calls before and during the showpiece event.
“I just felt that the 2019 World Cup planning was really poor. I think that the team management and selectors made some really bad calls – before the World Cup and in the World Cup – and that is what cost them.” Yuvraj added in a statement.
However, the former Indian cricketer Yuvraj Singh is pretty much confident that BCCI President Sourav Ganguly will bring a positive change in the Indian national cricket team.
“I think Sourav Ganguly coming in as BCCI president will give a lot of brain to it in making such things better. We have the talent no doubt, we just need a good think tank, and hopefully, we will be ready for the coming T20I World Cup in Australia,” said Yuvraj.
