Former Indian cricketer Yuvraj Singh is regarded as one of the finest cricketers to play for India. The Southpaw was an aggressive batsman and he went berserk against many bowlers in his career. Alongside exceptional batting skills he has brilliant spin bowler skills, he was a handy fielder too.
Finding a supremely talented player like Yuvraj is not an easy job for the team. There are not many players who own the same level of skillset as Yuvraj does. Notably, Yuvraj Singh also played phenomenal knocks for India under pressure in big tournaments.
Best bowling average against Australia in Tests since 1900:
Jim Laker – 18.27
Ravindra Jadeja – 18.85
Richard Hadlee – 20.56

Yuvraj was a very important member of India’s victory in the 2007 T20 World Cup and 2011 World Cup. However, Southpaw Yuvi retired from International cricket in the year 2019. Nonetheless, he talked about players whom he sees as the next Yuvraj Singh of the Indian team.
The talismanic cricketer believes the trio of Ravindra Jadeja, Hardik Pandya, and Rishabh Pant is the next big thing for the Indian team.
I am looking forward to seeing Rishabh, Hardik, and Jadeja bat at the 5,6, and 7 slots: Yuvraj Singh
“I probably don’t see any left-hander right now in the middle (On being asked about the next Yuvraj Singh). Overall, we have got some good hitters in the middle. We have got Rishabh (Pant). We have got Hardik (Pandya). I think Rishabh and Hardik together as they play more one-day and T20 together, they both will be quite a dynamic duo, batting together,” Yuvraj said in a conversation with the Times of India.
“You have Ravindra Jadeja coming in. So, these three guys can change the course of the game anytime. Jadeja has improved by leaps and bounds in one-day cricket and T20 cricket. The left-right combination is always dangerous, as I and MS Dhoni were. So, I am looking forward to seeing Rishabh, Hardik, and Jadeja bat at the 5,6, and 7 slots,” he added.
The trio of wicketkeeper Rishabh Pant and All-rounders Ravindra Jadeja and Hardik Pandya have been doing pretty good for India.
Meanwhile, Pant and Jadeja will be next seen in the five-match Test series against England. On the other side, Hardik Pandya will take part in the India tour of the Sri Lanka limited-overs series.
