he he he he,it was a complete surprise to see a senior pro like Yuvraj can not read the gravity of the situation.He was sent with a purpose and if he was not able hit or rotate the strike, should have got out. What can Dhoni or Raina do when Yuvraj wasted 21 deliveries and allowing only about 12 deliveries for Dhoni or Raina knowing very well that Malinga had a couple of overs left for him.Yuvraj's stay at the crease turned the match in Sri Lanka's favour.
"Out of form Yuvraj cost India the world cup". India lost momentum totally after he came in to bat. T20 is all about momentum. Even this has happened in Semi-final luckily he got out and Raina & Kohli recovered it. Even after this why Dhoni has sent Yuvraj ahead of Raina. Due to these factors we lost World cup.
its interesting match was going on in the hands of virat kohli , why dhoni opt for yuvraj instead of suresh raina. the game went in the wrong way after yuvraj. thanks to virat for his enthusiastic play. may be for sangakara and jayawardane retirement from t20 matches. we totally upset the winning game finally we lost. we are commandable team with our captain dhoni. but we can digest the defeat.

The selectors are to blame. In India you can easily get through by emotions. Yuvi was given chance to play for the national team after his ailment without checking his fitness or how well he is playing..This happens only In India
Dhoni believes in not changing a winning combination . It's therefore as long as Dhoni is the Captain it's best for selectors not to have more than 12 . The rest are anyone benched permanently. Sad that these Benchers end their cricketing careers on the Bench itself:>((

This is a problem with most of the captains. Even Kohli did the same in Asia cup where he dint change the combination even against Afghanistan..

Why cant fantards listen to criticism? First it was SRT's fanboys who reported ANY sort of criticism. Now, its the turn of Dhoni's boys. Moral policing wont work..
After first two matches Yuvaraj should have been dropped.Atleast Raina should have come to bat as it was already late. But even Dhoni ,as an Indian , stuck to his sentimentality, patronising and going by the past reputation of Yuavarj cost India the Cup. Indians will never change.

You really ask why? India has 1.200.000.000 people and war-torn Lanka 20.000.000. It's a lucky fortune that cricket isn't watched by snyone but Indians, it would be a major joke of the world.
