Yuvraj Singh

Yuvraj Singh advocated for Rishabh Pant to be India’s wicketkeeper at the T20 World Cup, valuing his left-handed batting and match-winning potential.

Former Indian cricketer Yuvraj Singh has suggested changes to India’s batting line-up for the upcoming T20 World Cup in West Indies and USA. Yuvraj proposed promoting young left-handed batter Yashasvi Jaiswal as Rohit Sharma’s opening partner and picking Rishabh Pant as the preferred wicketkeeper.

Yuvraj opind that a left-handed right-handed combination at the top, featuring Jaiswal and Rohit Sharma, would provide greater flexibility against bowlers.

“I think Rohit and Jaiswal should definitely open the batting. Virat has been successful at number three in T20 internationals, and that’s where he should bat. With Suryakumar Yadav likely at number four, the batting order looks strong,” said Yuvraj.

Yuvraj emphasized the importance of left-handed batters in the team’s composition. “It’s always a challenge for bowlers to deal with contrasting batting styles. Having a left-right combination at the top and in the middle order can be very effective,” he explained.

This preference for left-handed options extended to the wicketkeeper’s position as well. While both Rishabh Pant and Sanju Samson have been impressive in the IPL, Yuvraj leaned towards Pant. “Sanju is in great form, but Rishabh brings left-handed variety and has the potential to win games single-handedly, as he has done before,” concluded Yuvraj, who himself is a left-handed batter.

Meanwhile, India’s T20 World Cup campaign kicks off against Ireland on June 5th in New York, followed by a crucial clash against Pakistan four days later.
