New Delhi: Veteran Indian cricketer Yuvraj Singh reminded fans of his hay days during his brilliant 35-run knock against Sri Lanka in Match 7 of Asia Cup 2016.
The left-hander, who has been struggling with the bat of late, looked in fine nick as he played some delightful strokes against the Lankans.
The 34-year-old came to bat in the 12th over post the dismissal of Suresh Raina. Yuvi scored a boundary off the second ball he faced and followed it with two back-to-back sixes against Rangana Herath in the next over.
He continued to hit boundaries before being dismissed for 35 by Thisara Perera off a well directed bouncer.
Indian skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni was all praise for the southpaw's knock.
"I think consistent performance is very important. In the last 9-10 T20s we have played, we have done well. It was good to see a few of the others contributing as well," Dhoni was quoted as saying by PTI.
"Yuvraj Singh's innings was crucial, not just for this match but for the team as well, good to see him get into some good form," Dhoni added.
With the ICC World Twenty20 scheduled to be played in India from March 8, it is crucial from India's perspective that Yuvraj finds his rhythm back in the shortest format of the game.
