Asserting that his team was a strong contender to win the second season IPL title, Kings XI Punjab skipper Yuvraj Singh on Monday said he was banking upon his batting line-up and was looking to enhance his performance in the cash-rich Twenty20 league.
“We have a good team for this season. We have good batting line-up with players like Shaun Marsh, (Kumar) Sangakkara and (Mahela) Jayawardene. One thing we missed a good pacer Sreesanth but we have enough bowling options,” the left-hand batsman said after launching his own merchandise with a brand called “Yuvi” in Mumbai on Monday.
Admitting that his performance was not so good during the New Zealand tour, the stylish left hander said he was not happy with his performance but was confident to do well in the coming matches.
“I could have done better but could not. I will try to make amends in the coming matches. Besides I will try to play a good captaincy role in South Africa which is my favorite place,” the flamboyant middle-order batsman said.
Refusing to comment on Kolkata Knight Riders’ multiple-captain theory, Yuvraj said, “Every team has own rule and I do not want to comment on this. But we have no such plans.”
Launching his own merchandise, the Kings XI Punjab captain said, “I am delighted to have Cool Maal approach my agency Cornerstone to launch their first line of merchandise. There are a lot of fans to whom this will be a token of love and gratitude from my end.”
