World Cup 2011 to 2019: Who Will Be Our Yuvraj in 2019?

Muralitharan took 15 wickets in the World Cup 2011 and he was the 4th highest wicket taker of the 2011 World Cup.
Virendra Sehwag scored 380 runs and was the second highest run-getter for team India.
Then came the chosen one for India, a guy suffering from cancer, spitting blood out of his cough. A fighter who fought all the way to glory. Yuvraj Singh, he scored 362 runs and took 15 wickets. That is stats wise in the world cup Yuvraj Singh = Muralitharan + Sehwag. He was the X-factor India had in the World Cup.
Now the question arrives who will be India’s Yuvraj in the 2019 World Cup. Who has the ability to score 350+ runs and get 12+ wickets? A genuine All round performance will only enhance India’s chances for lifting the ultimate prize. Who Do You Think is gonna be the Yuvraj?



Yuvraj Singh Himself! I wish he is selected. It will solve our No 4 problem. He is an Impact player, Big match player. And no alternative seems to be any better than him. So, why not go with experience!

Any way we have very limited all rounder options, Hardik - No good in bowling, Shankar - Too green and untested, Jadeja - No good with Bat. Kedar seems to be the best of the lot.

If we have Rohit, Dhavan/Rahul/Pant, Virat, Yuvraj, Dhoni/Pant, Kedar, Shankar/Hardik, Bhuvi, Yadav, Chahal, Bumrah line up, it may work for us.

If we have Yuvi, We can think of trying Pant for Dhoni.


Nobody can ever replace Yuvraj Singh. Although his chances among the selectors mind are quite low but for a man who has fought cancer can turn around anything in this world. He has this one remarkable opportunity to get back in the squad if he scores 400+ in the tournament. He can be the Mystery No.4 in the line up. MS Dhoni will surely have his name in mind and would suggest Virat to take a risk if Yuvraj proves himself. He looks in amazing touch and the 3 sixers he hit Chahal showed cricket is still left in this Gladiator.
The squad is all settled with confusion arising only for the No.4 spot.
Rohit, Dhawan, Kohli, Yuvraj, Hardick, MSD, Chahal,Kuldeep, Shami, Bhuvi & Bhumra.

Also, I would want to highlight and reply, Sehwag wasn’t the 2nd highest run getter. It was Sachin. Sehwag was 7th.
There comes no question of replacing Dhoni. The boys have to do it for the Man himself. Do it for Dhoni and give him the farewell he deserves.

Yuvraj performed as All rounder. But, Rohit “Hitman” Sharma is giving similar impactful performance as batsman in this edition.

I think rohit sharma. He can get man of the series.
