Former Indian all-rounder Yuvraj Singh is termed as one of the finest players when it comes to white-ball cricket. Yuvi has single-handedly won many games for his national side and he has also played a major role in the 2007 T20 World Cup and 50 over World Cup in 2011. Who Will Be The Next Yuvraj Singh For India? The legend himself has answeredto this question in one of his recent interviews.
The Punjab-based cricketer was the backbone of Team India and he is one of the most reliable players at No.4 during his days. And he is also well known for breaking the opposition batting partnerships.
Here comes the main question – Who will be the Next Yuvraj Singh for Team India?
Yuvraj Singh has himself answered this question in an interview he said – “I probably don’t see any left-hander right now in the middle (On being asked about the next Yuvraj Singh). Overall, we have got some good hitters in the middle. We have got Rishabh (Pant). We have got Hardik (Pandya). I think Rishabh and Hardik together as they play more one-day and T20 together, they both will be quite a dynamic duo, batting together,”
He has also added “You have Ravindra Jadeja coming in. So, these three guys can change the course of the game anytime. Jadeja has improved by leaps and bounds in one-day cricket and T20 cricket. The left-right combination is always dangerous, as I and MS Dhoni were. So, I am looking forward to seeing Rishabh, Hardik, and Jadeja bat at the 5,6 and 7 slots,”
Yuvraj Singh was one of the prime reasons why IPL was born. It was owing to his breathtaking batting in the inaugural T20 World Cup that Indian fans fell in love with T20 cricket. He smashed six sixes in an over of Stuart Broad and scored the fastest fifty (12 balls) in any format of the game.
While Yuvraj Singh’s knock of 70 in 30 balls against Australia in the World T20 semi-finals to date remains the best T20I innings ever played. Yuvraj’s fascination with ICC tournaments continued even in the ODI World Cup in 2011. He scored 362 runs and picked up 15 wickets to win the “Man of the Series” award.
