I think Mahi took a very good decision in stepping down: Yuvraj Singh

By Saurabh Malhotra -

Yuvraj Singh who has been recalled in India's ODI & T20I squads for the series against England, has spoken for the first time since his inclusion. He talked exclusively to BCCI.TV and shared his thoughts on various things.

Yuvraj first lauded MS Dhoni for taking the right decision to quit captaincy, he said, “I think he took a very good decision in stepping down. I’m sure he saw that its time for the next guy to take over and build the team for the 2019 World Cup and he must have seen that in Virat.”

Yuvraj also appreciated MS Dhoni for what he achieved as captain, “We have won the T20 World Cup, the ICC World Cup and the ICC Champions Trophy and were also the number one Test team under him. I’m not sure how many captains have that,”

Yuvraj then moved onto the speculation whether he is fit enough to be part of the new Team India which focus the most on fitness before other aspects, “I need to be very careful with everything I do. The science of fitness has advanced and that is how we are learning,” he said, “If you see the boys in the Indian team, everybody is training pretty hard and physically fit. Being physically fit is a very important part of improving mental strength.” he concluded.
