ICC T20 World Cup
Dhoni backs Yuvraj to come good in T20 World Cup remaining fixtures
After two back to back wins in the ongoing T20 world cup campaign, team India is taking a well deserved rest. India play next on Friday against Bangladesh, the competition host. The break also gives them time to address a couple of serious issues, which were recognised in their last two matches.

Their recent matches (in T20 World Cup) suggest that the team is doing fine in all departments of the game. In spite of it, there is a need to address a couple of issues. To start off, Yuvraj Singh is not in the best of form, which can be justified by his recent scores of 1 and 10 runs against Pakistan and West Indies respectively.

Captain MS Dhoni feels, that Yuvraj going in and out of the team has effected his performance, but backed him saying 'get back in form and win matches for the team.' “He was one of the best players in last T20, but now we can say that he is not in his form. We easily say that T20 is a small format and you should go and express yourself, but playing T20 is not an easy task,” said the skipper, reported nnis. Dhoni also added, “We are hoping that he gets a good start, which will boost his confidence again.”

India's fielding has also been another major problem, as they have dropped a few catches, while misfielding some as well. Dhoni admitted, it is an area, which needs to be seriously looked into. “It is not only a problem with the Indian team, as of now there are few catches that have been dropped, so I don't know whether it is the surrounding or something else, as I don't know the exact reasons. But this is something we have to overcome.”

India has been winning despite of key batsmen not scoring runs and fielders dropping catches. It is tough to say, if Yuvraj can regain his destructive form in four days practice, but as far as fielding under lights is concerned, Indian team should make full use of the practise and improve upon their fielding skills.
