India A skipper Yuvraj Singh was left distraught after his bowlers leaked runs in the final unofficial ODI against West Indies in Bangalore on Thursday. After letting the West Indians score a daunting 312, the Indians went down by 45 runs to lose the three match series 2-1.

Yuvraj, making his cricket comeback in this series, looked solid once again. His 61, however, was not enough to help India A reach anywhere close to their target. Yuvraj is clearly unhappy with the way his bowlers leaked runs. The likes of Siddharth Kaul, Vinay Kumar, Jaydev Unadkat and Yusuf Pathan were targeted in particular.

"It (the defeat) is very disappointing. Credit to West Indies as they put just too many runs on the board today. We discussed before the game how we are going to bowl but it didn't work out," said Yuvraj in a post-match chat. (Match highlights)
