Asia Cup T20: Yuvraj Singh's knock against Sri Lanka was crucial, says Mahendra Singh Dhoni

New Delhi: India skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni is quite excited to see that veteran batsman Yuvraj Singh is back in form.

Yuvraj played a blistering knock of 35 off 18 balls on Tuesday against Sri Lanka to help India beat the Islander's by five wickets to reach the final.

MSD said he was happy that the likes of Yuvraj Singh came good in the match.

"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.

Dhoni also feels that combination of three pacers and two spinners is working well for India.

"I think playing three pacers is working well for us. Both Ashwin and Jadeja are doing well and if they concede a bit of runs, they can make it up with the bat. They can contribute with the bat and that gives depth in our batting," said the skipper.
