Didn’t get Sourav Ganguly-like support from MS Dhoni or Virat Kohli: Yuvraj Singh

New Delhi/IBNS: Former Indian cricketer Yuvraj Singh appreciated Sourav Ganguly as a skipper and said he got more support from him than his successors like MS Dhoni and Virat Kohli.

Considered as one of the best all-rounders to play the game for India, Yuvraj represented India in 304 ODIs.

He played 110 ODIs under Ganguly’s captaincy.

Yuvraj Singh is remembered for his heroic contributions to India's World T20 and World Cup 2011 victories.

" I have played under Sourav (Ganguly) and had a lot of support from him. Then Mahi (MS Dhoni) took over. It’s a difficult choice to make between Sourav and Mahi. I have more memories of time under Sourav because of the support he gave me. I didn’t have that kind of support from Mahi and Virat (Kohli)," he told  Sportstar.

Singh said he struggled initially against ex-Sri Lankan bowler  Muttiah) Muralitharan but Sachin Tendulkar's tips helped him later.

"I really struggled against (Muttiah) Muralitharan. Had no clue against him. Glenn (McGrath) would trouble me a lot with the away-going delivery. Luckily I didn’t play much against McGrath because Test matches I was sitting out and cheering for the seniors. Then Sachin (Tendulkar) told me to start sweeping (against Muralitharan) and I was at ease," he said.

Singh retired from international cricket last year.
