Delhi Dardevils (DD) star batsman Yuvraj Singh said that his job is to play and win games for his side. Yuvraj scored a gritty half century against the Mumbai Indians (MI) on Tuesday, but it went in vain as the Dardevils lost their sixth game of the Pepsi Indian Premier League (IPL) 2015 by five wickets, reported The Times of India.
Yuvraj has had a scratchy tournament so far this season as he went past the 50 runs mark only twice and only one of them came for a winning cause. He has scored 203 runs in nine innings with an average of only 22.55. Being the costliest player of the tournament, those stats does not speak well off him.
He is not disturbed with what the critics has to say about him and promises to prove them wrong by scoring some runs with his bat and help his side win the remaining games in order to qualify for the playoffs.
"My job is to play cricket, critics' job is to write. So I don't really read or watch what comes on television, I don't have that much of time in my life at the moment. So I just try and stick to my job," said Yuvraj at the post-match press conference.
"I was hitting the ball well. I was getting few 20s and not getting 35-plus scores. IPL is a format where you can't assess consistently, you have to win games for your team. My job is to play and win it for my team," he said about his own batting.
Delhi Daredevils are currently placed at the sixth position and now they will have to win all their remaining games to give themselves a chance to qualify for the Playoff stages of the IPL 2015.
"Now it's do-or-die situation for us. We have got four games and we need to win four. It's going to be tough but not impossible. I remember Kolkata Knight Riders winning six or seven matches in a row to qualify and win the tournament. We will try our best," Yuvraj added.
