Q. Mashrafe, looking back on the historic big matches, the Bangladesh Twenty20 match against India, you could not manage to win it.
Yuvraj Singh, ladies and gentlemen, had arrived. "Focus on the process of the game", Yuvraj pointed out.
It is extremely disgraceful to see certain sections of the fan-base try and take the attention away from what promises to be a great game on Thursday, by unleashing a photo, degrading the Indian flag. They showed shades of brilliance, only to fade off. He is only the fifth Indian cricketer - after Mohammed Azharuddin, Sachin Tendulkar, Sourav Ganguly and Rahul Dravid - who will achieve this rare milestone when India face Bangladesh, Thursday. In the 2003 World Cup, he did the bulk of the damage in the middle overs. It is said that India's bowling attack is the best in the tournament and that is true. And before Dhoni could reply, it was Yuvraj who answered, "No, it is me". You can say, but I'm not sure. "This is what we have been dreaming for". He remained someone who chose flamboyance over consistency, playing attractive cameos that caught the eye but hardly for long enough. With a similar hard-nosed approach, India have set themselves high standards, and expectation will be they will maintain the level of performance and intensity from the South Africa match for the rest of the tournament.
If you consider the conditions you should keep 300 in your mind and most importantly we must prepare for any kind of challenge in the semifinal. "We have a good combination in place - a good combination of youth and experience", he said.

And then came the 2011 World Cup. "Personally in his life as well he has fought with bigger battles and that is a proof of character that he possess", said Kohli.
And he also makes sure to spend most nights on tours in Mortaza's room, him on the bed and his teammate turned confidant on the floor, which is how he likes it. Despite his return, the old Yuvi was missing.
Following their undefeated run in the Champions Trophy so far, England have risen one spot to fourth, overtaking New Zealand, as they eye their first-ever piece of major 50-over silverware.
"He is an inspiration on and off the field". "I thought the World Cup was a big turning point for us, getting to the quarterfinals, beating England".
"Our plan was always to take it match by match", he said. So even if we look at the last match, when Ross [Taylor] and [Kane] Williamson batted really well, we came back strongly.
