During a recent conversation with Sports18 on Home of Heroes, Yuvraj Singh said, “Definitely when you have support from the coach and the captain it helps. Look at Mahi (MS Dhoni) towards the end of his career. He had so much support from Virat and Ravi Shastri.”

He further added, “They took him to the (2019) World Cup, he played till the end, and went on to play 350 games. I think support is very important but in Indian cricket, everybody will not get support.”

Yuvraj Singh also stated that the fear of getting dropped was also a reason behind the downfall of many cricketers.

Explaining the same, Yuvraj Singh said, “There have been great players like Harbhajan Singh, Virender Sehwag, VVS Laxman, Gautam Gambhir who didn’t get that (support). When you are batting out there and you know that the axe is hanging on your head how will you concentrate and bat and give your best. It is not an excuse but with different coaches and after 2011 times are very different.”
