Yuvraj Singh helped us exceed our target: MS Dhoni

Yuvraj Singh’s big hits in the death overs helped India score 10 runs in excess of what would have been expected, feels skipper MS Dhoni after the hosts registered a nerve-wrecking 11-run win over Pakistan in the second T20 international here on Friday.

“Yuvi was at his best; those big sixes and fours really helped us in the end. We got 10 runs more than what we would have been happy with,” Dhoni said at the post-match presentation ceremony. Yuvraj creamed three sixes off Pakistan spinner Saeed Ajmal in the 19th over, which helped India post a competitive 192 for 5.

Dhoni praised his bowlers for finding their mojo just in the nick of time to restrict the arch-rivals to 181 for 7. “A lot depends on the youngsters bowling the last overs; I think they held their nerve nicely. They were feeling the pressure but they responded really well and executed the yorkers. When they wanted to bowl slower ones, they did that,” he said. Read more
