I am not Indian, so not too sure if I should post here.
I don't agree with above statement. The very nature of Yuvraj's batting will always require for him to be used when he is needed, which is always independent of the position he is batting. Sometimes you need a mor agressive batsmen up front, other times you reserve him for the slog closer to the end.
As much as Yuvraj is the talent with the bat, as much he is a liability in the field and as far as his running between wickets is concernend. I strongly believe, these skills can be practiced much more than a batting talent. However, it does appear, nobody cares for this. I am thinking of games lost by 3 runs and blunders in the field - you make the sum yourself.
But I'll leave you to your thread again, since I am not a real specialist in Indian cricket philosophies or politics....I wonder who is...
