I felt that my game is back: Yuvraj

Flamboyant left-handed batsman Yuvraj Singh said he felt like he rediscovered his old touch en route to a breezy 35, which played a pivotal role in India’s five-wicket win over Sri Lanka in the Asia Cup here.

The 34-year-old, who made a comeback in the national T20 team in January this year, shared a 51-run partnership with Virat Kohli (56 not out).

“Today was one of those days where I felt my flow was back. I needed a bit of a flow out there to feel good. I felt being positive out there when I got a few hits off my bat. I felt that my game is back,” Yuvraj told ‘BCCI.TV’.

“I just needed some time in the middle. I have been trying to get as much batting time as possible and I believe I have been picking up slowly,” he said. Yuvraj, who blasted three sixes and as many fours during his 18-ball knock, said he targeted Rangana Herath as he was a left-arm spinner.

“I was assessing which bowlers I am going to attack and which bowlers I won’t. I told myself that if a left-arm spinner is bowling, then I am going to go and attack straight away. Any left-hand batsman who can hit sixes will go after left-arm spin,” said Yuvraj.

“If an off-spinner is bowling, a right-hander is bound to target him and go after him. You have a game plan when you walk out to bat and at times it works and at times it doesn’t.

Tonight I just wanted to be positive and hit the ball straight away and deliver for the team,” he elaborated.
