Kanpur: Out-of-form and under pressure to perform, Yuvraj Singh came up trumps in the third and final ODI versus West Indies at Green Park Stadium in Kanpur on Wednesday. The middle-order batsman scored 55 -- his 51st ODI half-century -- as India eased to a five-wicket win. Speaking after the game, Yuvraj said he always believed that the runs would come. "I've been batting well but not getting enough runs. The runs are going to come, you have to make sure you are there at the tough times. It's all about gaining momentum," the 31-year-old said.
