Yuvraj Singh Makes Huge Claim About 2007 T20 World Cup
The T20 World Cup is right around the corner. Team India will want to leave their mark on the competition. Though India is still the official host of the tournament, the eventual venue could change soon. This could impact the overall approach of the teams as well. Keeping that in mind, the ICC and BCCI will be taking a call on this matter soon, as confirmed by recent reports.
Till that point in time, the teams are waiting for an update, while they focus on cricket elsewhere. Any international tournament is crucial and one such event that Team India won was the 2007 T20 World Cup.
What Were The Latest Comments Made By Yuvraj Singh About The 2007 T20 World Cup?
In a recent interview, Yuvraj Singh came out and said that he expected to be the captain of the Indian team for the 2007 T20 World Cup. This was before MS Dhoni was announced as the eventual skipper.
The left-handed batsman stated, “So, basically, India had already lost the 50-over World Cup, right? I mean that there was turmoil in Indian cricket. Then there was a two-month tour of England. Post that, there was also a month’s tour in between, with South Africa and Ireland. Further, there was a month of T20 World Cup. So, at that point, there were like four months away from home. So probably the seniors thought that they need a break. Obviously, nobody took the tournament seriously at that point. I was expecting to captain India. Then it was announced MS Dhoni will be the captain.”
Well, the decision proved to be a brilliant one as India won that tournament. It was the first competition that MS Dhoni captained the team for. The brilliant result cemented his position as the skipper for the competitions to come. That tournament made all the difference in the world. Had he not been picked as the skipper at that time, things could have been so different. The rest is just history!!
