Former India cricketer Yuvraj Singh named three batsmen in the current Indian team's batting line-up who can turn the game from any situation. Yuvraj was asked to name the players who can be as big match-winners as he was at the peak of his career.
Yuvraj backed the trio of Hardik Pandya, Rishabh Pant, and Ravindra Jadeja to be the game changers for India with the bat. He said although Team India doesn't have a left-handed batsman in the middle-order, the southpaw picked India's lower-order batters to come good.
“I probably don’t see any left-hander right now in the middle. Overall, we have got some good hitters in the middle. We have got Rishabh. We have got Hardik. I think Rishabh and Hardik together as they play more one-day and T20 together, they both will be quite a dynamic duo, batting together," he said.
Yuvraj further lauded India all-rounder Jadeja who has improved as a batsman lately. He gained the trust of his captain and cricket pundits as a batsman after the knock in the 2019 World Cup semi-final.
“You have Ravindra Jadeja coming in. So, these three guys can change the course of the game anytime. Jadeja has improved by leaps and bounds in one-day cricket and T20 cricket," he added.
The 39-year-old also pointed out the importance of using the available resources wisely and talked about the left and right-hander batting combination to unsettle the opposition attack.
Talking about the destruction he and Dhoni caused batting together, Yuvraj said, “The left-right combination is always dangerous, as I and MS Dhoni were. So, I am looking forward to seeing Rishabh, Hardik, and Jadeja bat at the 5,6, and 7 slots."
