One of the major concerns for the Indian fans ahead of the Asia Cup was that Yuvraj Singh had not got enough time to bat in the recent times.
But, the first couple of games in the Asia Cup have been good exposure for the left hander batting-wise as he has got decent number of deliveries to face.
He hasn’t scored too many runs, but, with more time at the crease, he is bound to get more fluent and that’s what India wants.
India desperately needs Yuvraj to be batting well as he is someone who can hit the big shots for a period of time.
The big hitters that many teams have got, they can hit the ball far back, but, you can’t expect a long stay at the wicket from them. They can come in, chance their arms, a couple of shots out of the park and that’s it
Those players are pretty rare who can keep that hitting spree going for some time and play a 30-ball 75 or a 40-ball 90 sort of knock, but, Yuvraj is definitely one that kind of a player.
If he is in good rhythm, he would not only clear the fence regularly, but, would stay there too. He is not a hit-or-miss.
However, he is short on confidence and thus, at the moment for him, it’s more about getting the feel of the ball onto the bat than anything else and luckily, he has been getting that for the past two games.
Once he starts feeling more confident, he will start bringing more shots out of his Arsenal.
His range of stroke play is as big as anyone else. He can hit the ball in any area of the Cricket ground.
