Mumbai: Former captain Kapil Dev on Tuesday said Yuvraj Singh, who played his first Test since recovering from a rare germ cell cancer in Ahmedabad, needs to be more focused to establish himself in the longer format of the game.
"I hope he plays well in Test cricket, which is his passion. In one-dayers and Twenty20, there is no better stroke player in the world like him. But he needs to establish himself in Test cricket. He needs to focus better," said Kapil at the launch of the book 'Yuvi', penned by senior journalist and columnist Makarand Waingankar, here.
Former chief national selector Dilip Vengsarkar, at whose academy Yuvraj played in his initial days, rued that the left-handed batsman did not play enough Test matches. "Over the years he didn't play many Test matches, which, I feel very bad about," Vengsarkar said.
