Former India all-rounder, Yuvraj Singh was one of the best players of Team India in shorter formats. He was one of the main reasons behind India’s two World Cup titles. Yuvi was also renowned for his pranks on his teammates. His mischievousness often landed him in problems and he had to deal with the outburst of the senior members.

In an interview to a sports magazine, Sportstar, Yuvraj said, “I was scolded a lot. From Rahul (Dravid). From Venky (Prasad). Kaif and I were scolded so much on the field by Kumble but we accepted it, learned and improved.”

He feels Team India needs someone, who can talk to the players on matters off the field.

“What they need is a psychologist of authority who can guide them in personal issues. Make them better persons. We had Paddy Upton who would discuss other issues of life, like fear of failure, and it helped us so much. The team probably needs someone like him.”
