Digital Desk, New Delhi. Yuvraj Singh is regarded as one of the greatest cricketers of India due to his many match-winning performances for the country. Many fans of Yuvraj were hoping that he would one day take over the command of Team India, but the Cricket Board ignored Yuvraj and made MS Dhoni the captain. Speaking to Gaurav Kapoor in the 22 Yarns podcast, Yuvraj said that before Dhoni was given the captaincy in 2007, he expected him to get the captaincy.
Yuvraj Singh said, ‘So basically India lost the 50-over World
On his relationship with Dhoni after he was made the captain, Yuvraj said, “Obviously whoever becomes the captain, you have to support that person. Be it Dravid, Sourav Ganguly or any other captain. At the end of the day you want to be a team man and I was like that.’ Yuvraj also referred to the argument he had with England all-rounder Andrew Flintoff. Yuvi said that I remember hitting Flintoff for two fours and obviously he did not like it. Flintoff said, ‘Come here, I’ll break your neck. To this I replied, ‘You know where my bat will strike.’ And then Yuvraj hit 6 sixes in a single over.
Let us tell you that Yuvraj Singh played an important role in the 2007 World Cup. Yuvraj played many important innings in the World Cup. Due to these innings, Team India was able to make its place in the final. In this tournament, Yuvraj Singh hit 6 sixes in an over of Stuart Broad against England. Along with this, he also held the record for the fastest half-century by scoring a half-century in 12 balls.
