Before the limited-over series in Australia, there was a lot of talk surrounding Dhoni's ability to contribute with the bat. Dhoni had managed only 275 runs from 20 ODIs in 2018. But that all changed in 2019 with Dhoni proving his value to the team and silencing his critics with some brilliant performances with the bat.

The likes of skipper Virat Kohli, cricket legend Sunil Gavaskar and coach Ravi Shastri all made an impassioned defence of the former India captain and highlighted his performance.

On Friday, Yuvraj echoed the sentiments.

"I think Mahi (Dhoni) has a great cricket brain. And as a wicket-keeper, you are in the best position to monitor the game and he has done that fantastically over the years. He has been a great captain. (He is) with the young players and guiding Virat (Kohli) all the time," Yuvraj said after being announced as the brand ambassador of sports-tech startup LivePools at suburban Bandra.
