It was likewise Dhoni’s lady task as the captain of Team India at the most significant level and he got off to a marvelous beginning, directing his side to turning into the heroes.

Day’s end you need to be a group man and that is the means by which I was: Yuvraj Singh

I mean there was a serious strife in Indian cricket and afterward there was a two-month visit through England and there was likewise a month visit in the middle with South Africa and Ireland. And afterward there was a month of T20 World Cup so there resembled four months from home.
“So presumably the seniors felt that they need a break and clearly, no one treated the T20 World Cup appropriately. I was hoping to skipper India in the T20 World Cup and afterward it was declared MS Dhoni will be the chief,” Yuvraj told on the 22 Yarns webcast.
“Indeed, clearly, whoever becomes commander you had the chance to help that person whether it was Rahul, regardless of whether it was [Sourav] Ganguly, whoever later on, day’s end you need to be a group man and that is the way I was,” Yuvraj added.
