Harsha Bhogle’s Take On Yuvraj Singh’s Poor Form Will Make You Sad

There was a time when Yuvraj Singh was sure shot match winner. His six sixes in one over of Stuart Broad in the T20 World Cup was one of the ferocious displays of batting while his all-round performance in the 2011 World Cup led India to win after a gap of 28 years.

Whenever he came to the crease, the fireworks started courtesy his batting. However, his bout with cancer and subsequent duel with fitness issues, has made him a thing of the past.

The ongoing edition of the Indian Premier League is a testimony of his declining career and it seems there will no comeback this time around.

While he was lambasted for his below par performance by fans, notable commentator Harsha Bhogle had a slightly different take.

Bhogle said, " I felt for Yuvraj today. One of India's greatest white-ball players. Those two balls were in his arc. There is a lesson there for all of us. That which we think is easy today, which we take for granted, will one day become difficult". He further tweeted, " Do bear in mind that if Yuvraj had been in form and batting freely, he would have come in earlier. That he didn't is an indicator of how the team management (not just the captain) perceived current form."
