The left-handed batsman also opines that Dhoni’s strategies have worked well against the big teams in the 50-over showpiece event.

Yuvraj recalled the days of playing against Pakistan speedster Shoaib Akhtar alongwith captain Sourav Ganguly in Karachi.

“His balling speed was over 150 km which was a challenge,” the all-rounder recounted.

Yuvraj also said in a lighter vein that Akhtar is a good commentator as well.
