Yuvraj a good player, but not a good skipper: Ness

Kings XI Punjab co-owner Ness Wadia on Tuesday said that Yuvraj Singh, though, is a ‘great player’, he is not a good captain and the decision to remove him from captaincy was a mutual one.

In an interview to an Indian news channel, Wadia said that Yuvraj’s performance as a player has been amazing and the team has no complaints from him. But when it comes to captaincy, the Chandigarh lad fails to fit into the role.

“There is a history which says that the best players are not always great captains. Yuvraj is a great player, but not the best captain,” Ness said.

“Yuvraj is an amazing player and we want him to perform. And so it was an amicable understanding between all of us to replace him as captain,” he added.

Yuvraj has been replaced by Kumar Sangakkara as the new captain of the Kings XI Punjab for the third season.

Irked by the sensationalism of the news by the media, team’s other co-owner and Bollywood superstar Preity Zinta said that there was no politics involved in the decision to move Yuvraj.

“What we do in team is for the betterment of the team. It is a trial and error method which every team in the IPL follows. The hype created by the media made the whole thing awkward for all; for the player, for the team and also for the management,” Zinta said.

“Eventually we are Kings XI Punjab and we all want to win,” she added.

    i agree completely with wt preity is saying..and well if it wasn’t preity’s team(or srk’s 4 dat matter) or if it wasn’t an indian player who was replaced (only as a position-wise) by a foreign player there would hav been none of this stupid hype!
    its a cricket team not a single player’s game..so they r all working towards a mutual goal n as PZ says “Eventually we are Kings XI Punjab and we all want to win,”
