Adelaide, Feb 19 (UNI) After his scintillating innings in India's victory over Sri Lanka here today, Yuvraj Singh hit out at critics who questioned his inclusion in the squad.
''I scored four half centuries in the last five one-dayers before the Australia tour. There has been only two bad games for me in the one-day series. If you are putting a question mark over my inclusion in the one-day side, you are asking me a wrong question,'' Yuvraj said.
''Well, there never was a question mark over my place in the side. But yes, I played more shots today. Having watched Gautam Gambhir, as he tackled Muthiah Muralitharan in Brisbane, I decided that instead of blocking, I should play my natural game.'' he added.
''I know my capability. Everyone has bad times. It can't be one graph all the time. There are situations when I have done well in the past. Not able to carry on can be disappointing but you are human. You want to do best for your country.'' Yuvraj was grateful to Dhoni for his support and asserted that dip in form was a part of international cricket.
''As for Dhoni's support, it's important for players to support each other. You hardly have any support from press when you are having a bad time,'' he said.
