Kolkata: Rubbishing rumours that he refused to play under the leadership of co-player Suresh Raina, Indian cricketer Yuvraj Singh on Wednesday said he plays for India and not for captains of the cricket team.
"The question is totally baseless. I was badly ill. I have started training. It is totally baseless that I have denied playing under Suresh Raina. I play for India and my team, and not for any captain," said said Yuvraj while addressing a TV programme. (Also Read: Yuvraj fully fit for England tour selection)
