"I wanted to bat according to the situation no matter how big the occasion was. It was important to focus on right things. I just wanted to watch the ball and rotate the strike and I was able to do that. Unfortunately, I could not finish the game. Virat is in sublime form and Dhoni came and finished the game," Yuvraj said on team's six-wicket win over arch-rivals in group league match of World T20.

Once a flamboyant batsman, the elder statesman of the team now has a different role of playing second fiddle to younger batsmen in the side. He had a match-winning partnership against Pakistan in the Asia Cup and now a 61-run stand that sealed it at the Eden gardens, the other night.

"My job is to play a few balls and then play my attacking game. We were under a bit of pressure after losing the first game (against New Zealand). (In that match) we did not bat the way we wanted to. Here we lost three quick wickets which put us under pressure. We needed to get a partnership and the 50 plus stand with Virat took the pressure off us," said the 35-year-old veteran left-hander.

Yuvraj is happy that the team has got its confidence back which it will carry into the next match against Bangladesh.
