After hitting 150, the star cricketer Yuvraj Singh termed it as one of the best innings in his 16 years of international career.
“The last time I got a hundred was the 2011 World Cup. I am very happy with the innings. We were trying to get a partnership. I just wanted to play down the ground and not take much risk. I have been hitting the ball well in the whole domestic season," said Yuvraj during the innings break.
Yuvi said that he is keen to go for the big shots. “I had a word with Sanjay Bangar, I told him the way I am hitting the ball I will go big. With the five fielder rule, mid-on, mid-off is up, the wicket was not [helpful] for the seamers after the first 10 overs," Yuvraj added.
He also praised the former skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni, who also scored 100 in the same innings. “Dhoni has been a sensational captain for India. When Mahi is not captaining, he will bat freely. Hopefully, if we take early wickets we can win the game.”
