'I felt like a club batsman batting with Yuvi' says Virat KohliIn the throbbing win against Pakistan to open the ICC Champions Trophy with a bang, middle order batsman Yuvuraj Singh played a conducive innings of 53 runs off 32 balls and was adjudged man of the match.

Lauding the magnificent innings, Indian skipper Virat Kohli told he ‘felt like a club batsman playing alongside Yuvuraj Singh’ in the innings.

“I felt like a club batsman playing alongside Yuvi, the way he was hitting the ball. We have taken the confidence from the practice games. We need to tighten our fielding to compete against best teams” – Virat Kohli reckoned.

“The way Yuvi batted, it was the game changing innings, to be honest. That gave all of us the confidence to start striking the ball well” – Kohli added.

Mentioning about changing the strategy a little bit in the next games, Indian skipper said, “They play spin really well and most of them are right handers. In pressure situations, to have mid – on, mid – off up and hit hard lengths, gives us an advantage. Against other sides, we might use two spinners, depending on their strengths.”

Meanwhile Yuvuraj Singh is hopeful of taking the great confidence into the next games of India in the group stages.
