Don't single out Yuvraj, says Yograj

 Yuvraj Singh’s father Yograj on Sunday came out to the defence of his son, saying the left-handed batsman, who struggled for his 11 runs off 21 balls, should not be singled out for India’s loss in the World T20 final.

“Yuvraj should not be singled out,” Yograj said when asked if his son consuming little over three overs was the reason behind India loosing title clash.

Even as Virat Kohli struck his fourth half-century of the tournament, Lankan bowlers applied brakes on a struggling Yuvraj.

“When we loose their is criticism from all sides. Ups and downs are part of life and part of this game as well,” he said.

Referring to the lean patch Yuvraj has gone through in recent times, Yograj said: “When a player some times goes through lean patch, the state of mind becomes such that he starts thinking if he dose not make runs he may be out of the team or the team may lose.”

“When West Indies lost the 1983 World Cup to India, Sir Viv Richarts went to Indian dressing room and congratulated the team saying they played better cricket and deserved to win,” he said.
