How Yuvraj Singh fared in the World Twenty20

After a feeble performance from Indian southpaw Yuvraj in the final against Sri Lanka, we take a look at the batsman's performance in the World T20 tournament this year

vs Pakistan... 1
With India chasing 131 for victory, Yuvraj Singh came in to bat when the score was 64-2. He lasted just two balls, being bowled by spinner Bilawal Bhatti for one. India went on to win the high-profile fixture as their opponents gave in without much fight.

vs West Indies... 10
The 32-year-old star batsman continued his poor form against the West Indies next up. Chasing a victory target of 130, Yuvraj Singh (10) lasted 19 deliveries before being caught at slip by Chris Gayle off Marlon Samuels. Fortunately, India won the match.

vs Australia... 60
Yuvraj Singh launched a spectacular counter-attack against Australia to score 60 off 43 balls to steer India to 159-7. His innings included five fours and four sixes. He added 84 with skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni for the fifth wicket. This was his best match of the tournament.

vs South Africa... 18
Chasing a challenging 173 in semi-final, a lot was expected from the man who got back to form in the last league game. But he only managed to score 18 off 17 balls in his 56-run partnership with Virat Kohli. He was caught by AB de Villiers at long-off off spinner Imran Tahir.

vs Sri Lanka... 11
A laboured 11 off 21 balls by Yuvraj Singh, tilted the match in favour of Sri Lanka. India managed to score just 130-4. He came in to bat at 64-2 in 10.3 overs. What's more he was unable to give Kohli the strike. Will Yuvi play for India again is a big question.
