Mumbai: Part of two World Cup-winning squads under MS Dhoni, Yuvraj Singh knows more than a thing or two about what it is like playing under a man who masterminds plans with utmost ease.

Sharp tactical acumen coupled with street-smart alertness make him an indispensable asset to Team India and Yuvraj shed light on how Dhoni, the enigmatic engine,
operates behind the stumps.

“Mahi has a great cricket brain. And as a wicket-keeper, you’re in the best position to monitor a game. He not only helps the young players, but you also see him guiding Virat Kohli on the field every time,” Yuvraj said.

The southpaw, who forged many match-winning partnerships with the Jharkhand cricketer over the years, is delighted to see the old version of Dhoni back.

“I think he has done well over the years. He has been a great captain. His presence is vital in terms of decision-making and he is coming off a fantastic tournament in Australia.

It’s good to see him hitting the ball as he used to. I wish him all the best,” the 37-year-old explained.

When questioned if the number four role was ideal for Dhoni given Team India’s middle-over conundrum, the stalwart said: “That you will need to ask Dhoni himself, what position he wishes to bat.”
