Yuvraj Cannot Be Put in Upper Order-Dhoni

However India won the second T20 in a style against Sirilanka on 12th February, there are some talks about the batting order of India in this competitions. The top order openers are fit and perfectly doing good job for India, with or without Kohli, India is not weak in the upper order like Pakistan.

Now there is a bit of an issue on the batting order of the coming back hero Yuvraj Singh for India. Hardik Pandya was observed to come into play ahead of captain Dhoni, he looked impressive with his shots last night, but Yuvraj Singh is a ultimate batting stroke player who could have batted at that place.Maybe India would have done a lot better than they already did.

Dhoni talked to the media after the match about this, he was obviously relieved and happy with the match result. He was happy with the result that Hardik was able to provide, promoting his batting order worked good and positive for India.

The openers were blistering. There is no point of re-arranging the batting order of openers. Dhoni is well preparing for the T20 World Cup, therefore he can do some experiments with his batting at this stage before the big event starts. He gave Pandya the opportunity and he impressed the selectors. Now Yuvraj Singh has no chance to bat in the top four order.

Dhoni wants to give exposure to his young players as well as benefit from the experience of Yuvraj. But not at the cost of disturbing the well playing individual at the top order. Yuvraj singh failed last night when he joined the batting after Dhoni. Dhoni has no doubt in his mind that Yuvraj cannot play as an opener. He is definitely fit down the order and not possible to fit him in the top 4.
