Should India drop Yuvraj Singh from their T20 side?

Yes

He's struggling for form and fitness, and India have viable replacements in Ajinkya Rahane and Stuart Binny.

No

He's been India's gun player in ICC events, and is always only one innings away from regaining form.

T20 is a very audacious approach to cricket, wherein you need to be pumped up every time you get on to the field. You may run out of form, but you need to back yourself and be confident. You cant play with double minds, get preoccupied with your current form and doubt your ability, if you want to play this blockbuster masala format of cricket. The problem with Yuvraj Singh has always been his state of mind. He has made a brilliant comebacks in the past but that has always been very short-lived. With the game evolving so fast, and the strength and weaknesses so minutely scrutinized, skills can get outdated so fast. Seems, Yuvraj has not paid heed to such details and evolved himself over the years.

No way! Well Yuvraj is a player who makes his contribution to the team with bat, ball and in the field as well.

He might take some time to get into form but then he makes every run count for his team. Yuvraj has been an integral part of the Indian team for the last few years and has contributed to a great deal in almost all the big ICC events.

His brilliant performance in the last innings in the T20 against Australia he has proved his worth. Dhoni has also before this match said that player like Yuvraj might take some time to get back into form but will be an asset to the team.

He thrashed all the Aussie bowlers with clean hits all round the ground. Keeping in mind the bench strength of the Indian batting lineup he deserves a little chance in the few upcoming matches.

He is the player who can take the game away from the opposition in no time and might be useful inn the field as well. He can be a part time slow bowler also. So he deserves to be in the Indian team.

World Cup is not the arena where you massage players back to form. You play your best eleven and let your opponents know that you are serious and you want to win. India is stuck on its favorite players and refuses to make changes. They have made one change by bringing in a wrist spinner and see what a difference he has made. Rahane in middle order will make a similar impact in batting. He is consistent and also a great fielder. It is time to stay Good Bye to Yuvraj.

Yuvraj has had enough chances... now its time to hang his boots... to be specific a ball on his off stump is enough for him to get out...take his last ten outs.. says its time for him to go... give Rayudu, Pujara chances... Rehane is not good for T20...

I don't understand , we don't play cricket but we like to comment upon sport personnel's, who bring laurel to the country. When Yuvi was making runs nobody questioned his ability, since his return from Cancer do give him some more time to recoup. Shame on the media too , trying to make issues out of nothing. Do u see any media person retiring ? Shame on everyone who makes comment on any sports personality. Let the team decide , we as cricket lovers should enjoy the game, and leave the rest to the captain and the officials to decide. Look at ur own a.. than looking at others.

Let's face it.Yuvi hasn't been at his best.He himself doesn't look confident.And I believe That is due to lack of runs.So, he should go back to the domestic circuit get some good runs which will increase his confidence.And should also understand that there are many players in the domestic circuit who are hungry to get into the team...

hate him when he plays against pakistan as he is a brilliant player. Feel sad for him as he had helped india win many many matches and helped in ICC tournaments however now he is out of form and should be allowed to come into form prior to being selected for ICC event esp T20 which doesn't give u an opportunity to come into form due to the pace of the game.

He deserves a chance to stay in the team.

If you have watched his recent innings against Australia... #thrilling. He is middle order batting spearhead.

Should be given at least one more game after performance against Australia.
