‘Yuvraj will be match-winner in World Cup 2015′ – Murali
Muttiah Muralitharan feels his Royal Challengers Bangalore team-mate, Yuvraj Singh, has a lot left in him. Following Yuvraj’s knocks of 83 off 38 and 68 not out off 29 in the IPL, Murali said India “should look after Yuvraj” because of what he could do for them in next year’s World Cup. Following his stymieing 11 off 21 in the World T20 final, Yuvraj was under considerable pressure, Murali said, and hence his form dropped.
“I have been talking to Yuvi a lot,” Murali told the IPL website. “He is a great limited-overs player, but his confidence was low. After the World Twenty20, the whole country put a lot of pressure on him. I know the situation well as I played for 20 years at the highest level. I knew it was just a matter of helping him regain his confidence. I was sure once he did that, he would be a different player.
“After the way he has performed in the last two games, it seems I was right. I honestly think Yuvi has still got it and India should look after him because I feel he will play a big role in the 2015 World Cup. He will be India’s match-winner there.”
