India Captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni on Tuesday said it would be a change of role for Yuvraj Singh in the one-day series against Australia.
“Our batting has always revolved around him. He is a type of player who can change gears at any point of time and can take complete control of the game. At the same time, he has played over 250 ODIs which means he has got a lot of experience,” said Mahendra Singh Dhoni.
Sachin Tendulkar and Virender Sehwag are rested, and therefore Yuvraj being the senior most cricketer of the side will have a change in role.
“If you do well in bowling it reflects in your batting and if you do well in batting it reflects in your bowling. He has got both the dimensions of the game,” said Dhoni.
Earlier, India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni was non-committal on Yuvraj Singh playing Sunday’s first ODI against Australia. He gave indications that youngster Saurabh Tiwary could make his international debut.
