Yuvraj feels he has his ‘flow’ back

India

Batsman Yuvraj Singh feels he has his 'flow' back after hitting 35 from just 18 balls as India beat Sri Lanka by five wickets on Tuesday to qualify for the Asia Cup final.

The left-handed Yuvraj has not had the best of times with the willow, scoring only 64 runs in three Asia Cup matches at a strike rate of 96.

Some have called for the 34-year-old to make way for a younger more dynamic player in the middle-order but the 2011 World Cup player of the tournament showed his experience against Sri Lanka.

The Punjab player shared in a vital partnership of 51 with Virat Kohli to seal the victory after India were in a spot of bother chasing a target of 139.

Yuvraj told bcci.tv after the game: "Today was one of those days where I felt my flow was back. I needed a bit of a flow out there to feel good.

"I felt that my game is back. I have been trying to get as much batting time as possible and I believe I have been picking up slowly."

"I was assessing which bowlers I am going to attack and which bowlers I won't. I told myself that if a left-arm spinner is bowling, then I am going to go and attack straight away.

"Any left-hand batsman who can hit sixes will go after left-arm spin… Tonight I just wanted to be positive and hit the ball straight away and deliver for the team."
