Yuvraj Singh has never made a secret of his desire to lead India one day. The dashing left-hander was pretty excited about leading the Mohali team in the IPL, and even talked of using the experience gained here in leading the country as and when he gets a chance.

However, it has been a baptism by fire for Yuvraj, what with Mohali finishing on the losing side in both the matches played so far. And Yuvraj didn’t hesitate in admitting that he has made mistakes. “Look, I am new to the job and I know I have made certain mistakes, but I am learning,” said Yuvraj Singh.

“It’s been pretty tough, but then I also realise nothing comes easy. We have a great bunch together and we will soon turn it around,” he said.

Echoing his thoughts, coach Tom Moody said the team has a bunch of match winners who have been winning the games consistently for their teams they play for outside the IPL. “We have players with us who take great pride in winning. So, nobody is comfortable with the fact that we have lost the first two matches and are looking forward to start winning,” said Moody.
