Swashbuckling middle order batsman Yuvraj Singh on Tuesday backed the decision of the International Cricket Council to cap the number of Twenty20 internationals played by a country in a calendar year.

"It obviously feels great to be part of the winning team in the Twenty20 format, but it's more of an entertainment for the crowd and the batsmen," cautioned the vice captain of the Indian team which won the inaugural T20 World Cup in South Africa last month.

"Hence the ICC's decision to restrict the number of Twenty20 Internationals (seven per country) in a calendar year is (a) welcome (decision)," added Yuvraj who was also the vice captain of the one-day team led by Mahendra Singh Dhoni in the best-of-seven home ODI series that India lost to Australia.

The Punjab cricketer, who went into the record books by slamming six sixes in an over from England pacer Stuart Broad in the World T20 championship, was speaking on the sidelines of a promotional event for Donear Industries of which he's the brand ambassador.
