Yuvraj Singh confident of India retaining World Cup

Praising Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s efficient leadership, out-of-favour Indian all-rounder Yuvraj Singh said that the team’s spectacular showing in this edition so far makes him believe that the Men in Blue can retain the trophy.

“The way the Indian cricket is performing under the captaincy of Mahendra Singh Dhoni in the World Cup clearly manifests that it will retain the world champions title,” Yuvraj, who inaugurated a cricket academy at ITM University here, told reporters.

The left-handed batsman also opines that Dhoni’s strategies have worked well against the big teams in the 50-over showpiece event. Yuvraj recalled the days of playing against Pakistan speedster Shoaib Akhtar alongwith captain Sourav Ganguly in Karachi.

“His balling speed was over 150 km which was a challenge,” the all-rounder recounted. Yuvraj also said in a lighter vein that Akhtar is a good commentator as well.
