Eng should watch their mouth: Yuvraj
Saturday 22 October 2011

India’s batting mainstay Yuvraj Singh took a dig at England players and the English media for their comments during India's disastrous tour of England, saying they should be careful of what they say as "what goes around comes around".

"The English media and the players have spoken too much. So what goes around comes around. The players should be careful with what they say," the 30-year-old left-hander said on the sidelines of a promotional event in Mumbai.

Yuvraj was referring to India's victory in the ongoing ODI series against England, coming soon after their 4-0 whitewash in the Test rubber, besides defeats in the limited-overs series and the lone T20, to the same opposition in their backyard during the July-September tour.

Yuvraj had words of praise for the youngsters in the squad, especially top-order batsman Virat Kohli, for their contribution to India's resurgence, as India took a 3-0 lead in the five-match series with a five-wicket win in the third ODI in Mohali on Thursday. "The youngsters have performed really well. They have taken the responsibilities."

"Virat is a very natural and exciting cricketer. He is not only handy with bat, but also with the ball. His contribution in the field is also tremendous. He has shown a lot of promise," he added.

The southpaw, who was ruled out of the ongoing one-day series due to a broken finger suffered during the second Test at Trent Bridge, said he was recovering will and will play in the upcoming domestic games as part of his preparation.

Meanwhile, commenting on the new ICC rules, he said the changes were advantageous to both batsman and bowlers, but more so for the latter.
