New Delhi. Former all-rounder Yuvraj Singh on Tuesday said that to be honest, he is not sure whether India will be able to win the 2023 World Cup at home.

In a freewheeling chat on YouTube channel Cricket Basu, the cricketer opened up on the state of Indian cricket to the sports presenter.

Even when he was asked about India’s 2023 World Cup prospects, he said, “Honestly speaking I am not sure whether they are going to win the World Cup or not, I say like a patriot I can see that India will win. But I see that there are a lot of concerns about the injuries in the middle order of the Indian team.

When asked about the fluctuating performance of the Indian cricket team in the last ten years, Yuvraj said clearly agitated, “It is disappointing to see them (India) not winning the World Cup, but it is what it is.”

He also did not object to the fact that it is the combination that is letting the Indian team down. “We have a sensible captain Rohit Sharma. They should get their combination right, we need a few matches to be ready. To pick a squad of 15, we should have a pool of at least 20 players.

According to Yuvraj ahead of the World Cup, “The top order is fine but the middle order needs to be settled. Slots 4 and 5 are very important. If Rishabh Pant is batting at number four for an IPL franchise, then he should bat at number four for the national team as well. The number four batsman cannot be a flamboyant run-scorer. He should be someone who can handle the pressure.

He also suggested that India cannot remain in experimental mode while playing pressure matches like knock-out matches.

When asked about the ideal No.4 position, which he has made his own, Yuvraj suggested the name of KL Rahul and in the same breath named Rinku Singh for the spot. Yuvraj said, “Rinku Singh was batting really well. I think he has the understanding to build partnerships and keep that strike. It’s too early. If you want him, you have to give him enough matches.” “

For fans who would like to see Yuvraj associated with the game at the highest level, he quipped, “Yeah, I think I would make a good coach. But for that you have to be in the system.”

He also has hopes for Indian cricket now that former cricketer Ajit Agarkar is also a good choice as the chairman of the selection committee.
