Gwalior: Praising Mahendra Singh Dhoni's efficient leadership, out-of-favour Indian all-rounder Yuvraj Singh said that the team's spectacular showing in this edition so far makes him believe that the Men in Blue can retain the trophy.

"The way our team is performing under the captaincy of Mahendra Singh Dhoni in the World Cup clearly manifests that it will retain the world champions title," Yuvraj, who inaugurated a cricket academy at ITM University here, told reporters.

The left-handed batsman also opines that Dhoni's strategies have worked well against the big teams in the 50-over showpiece event.

Yuvraj's 15 wickets in the 2011 ICC Cricket World Cup was one of the major factors which contributed to Dhoni lifting the coveted trophy after Kapil Dev's devils lifted it for the first time in 1983.
