(Kajal Singh intern journalist): Yuvraj Singh said that you cannot take a player in Team India on his IPL performance. Because he has done well in 20 overs but the 50-over match is different. In such a situation, you need experience here.
Former India batsman Yuvraj Singh has defended Rishabh Pant. He has said that there was no mistake in the way Pant got out in the semi-finals. The semi-finals of the 2019 World Cup were played between India and New Zealand. Team India’s score was 4 for 24 where Pant came to the crease and scored 32 runs. He shared a 47-run partnership with Hardik Pandya for the 5th wicket but was eventually dismissed.
When Pant was out, Virat and Ravi Shastri seemed angry with him, Virat was also pointing at them and saying something. In such a situation, Yuvraj has now defended Pant. He has said that Pant was playing his fifth ODI during that time and Team India lost their World Cup because the team did not have planning.
Pant was replaced by the injured Vijay Shankar, who replaced Shikhar Dhawan. Yuvraj said that Pant was included in the team after watching some matches of IPL, which is not right for the World Cup. When you play IPL, you have 20 overs and you can openly play shots at any time. But in a 50-over match, you cannot hit every ball. In this case, you need experience.
Let us know that Yuvraj was on Instagram chat with former England player Kevin Pietersen where he revealed many things. He told how he dismissed Pietersen several times. Yuvraj also told how he hit 6 sixes off the bowling of England bowler Stuart Boud.
