Yuvraj Singh: How much better could he be?

The answer, of course, is none. None better.

India were doing precisely nothing when he came to the crease in the Twenty20 World Cup semi-final against Australia. They were 41-2 after eight overs. ‘It’s too hard’ they seemed to be saying. ‘We can’t lay bat on ball’.

‘What?’ said Yuvraj Singh, utterly perplexed by his team mates’ inability to time the ball with absolute perfection. ‘Just do this,’ he instructed and promptly hit 70 runs off 30 balls, scything five fours and as many sixes.

If we were Yuvraj Singh, we’d feel perfectly happy about pointing at ourself in the mirror and saying ‘you the man’ because we’d be well aware that we were the man and wouldn’t be at all shy about letting ourself know this fact.

  1. Also satisfying was Sreesanth getting up in Matthew Hayden’s face, despite being half his size, and Hayden looking completely bemused. And as if that wasn’t enough, he decided he was going to do the same thing to Andrew Symonds. Fantastic.

  2. As an aussie i felt guilty enjoying Singh.

    But its like eating a 2 litre tub of ice cream, sure its not good for you, but it feels great at the time.
