Yuvraj Singh bursts at Indian team management for World Cup loss

If someone was failing at No. 4, the team management should have told that player that he was going to play the World Cup.

Former Indian all-rounder Yuvraj Singh blames Indian team management for the exit of India from World Cup at the semi-final against New Zealand.

MS Dhoni has been one of the longest-serving cricketers in the Indian national team, having already guided the senior team to the inaugural 2007 T20 World Cup and the 2011 ODI World Cup.

"There is no need to change anything except re-look at Dhoni's batting position come the next ODI series", the World T20 and ODI World Cup victor mentioned in his column. Like in the 2003 World Cup, we were playing New Zealand before the tournament, everybody was failing.

"It was disappointing to watch what they did with Rayudu".

New Zealand bowlers Matt Henry and Trent Boult were responsible for India slumping to 5/3 inside the first four overs, and that completely derailed the run-chase for the first few overs.

Waugh, who led Australia to the World Cup in 1999, believes India wouldn't even have had a chance to win the game if Dhono wasn't there.

Defending what looked like a below-par total of 239 runs, Kiwi pacers reduced India to 5/3 and then 24/4 before Rishabh Pant and Hardik Pandya started a fightback that took a match-winning shape under Ravindra Jadeja (77) and MS Dhoni (50) in a sixth-wicket stand of 116. "You can't drop someone if he is unable to do well all the time", added the legendary batsman. If Rohit and Virat would get out early, we could get into trouble and everyone knew about that. Once I got hold of the ball, I thought it was actually quite straight. It is unfortunate how they dealt with the whole situation. "But the same team played in the World Cup", Yuvraj was quoted as saying by TOI in an interview.
