Although Yuvraj Singh has been scoring runs heavily in the ongoing first class tournament back home, but, his form is not likely to earn him a place in the 15-member team of India for the World Cup.

The middle order of the Indian One Day International team is filled with talented youngsters who have, of late, done well on bowling-conducive surfaces as well.

In the games against England, somebody like Ambati Rayudu scored a couple of fifties in three innings that he played.

And, it was not only Rayudu, Ajinkya Rahane as well. The Mumbai youngster got his first three-figure score in the limited-over format there.

So, these guys have better chances of making it to the World Cup than Yuvraj, who might have been the man of the tournament in 2011, but, has clearly lost his mojo now.

His technical weaknesses have been found out and the bowlers always tend to ball him at his weak spot now.

It has been seen recently in international cricket, whenever Yuvraj is out there to bat, the opposition captain sets the inside out field and asks the bowler to go fast and short.

In Australia which produces probably the bounciest pitches in the world, Yuvraj might prove to be an easy prey for the genuinely quick bowlers.

So, the Indian selectors as well as the captain are supposed to be going to prefer players who are good against short balls.

Rayudu, Rahane and Rohit, each of these young players have the back foot game. They can play the short balls alright.

They are surely not right up there when it comes to experience, but, in shorter forms, you, as a captain, always want somebody who is fresher and hungrier and also, better suited to the conditions.
