MUMBAI: India's World Cup hero Yuvraj Singh on Sunday said cricket fans in India lacked sportsmanship and there unreal expectations could be 'killing' for the players at times.

"I'm very glad the next World Cup won't be held in India," said Yuvraj in an interview with a leading newspaper on Sunday. "You go to the hotel lobby and people say, 'You have to win for India'. There's so much intensity, it's almost as if they're saying, 'Win or I'll shoot you in the head'."

The well-built middle-order batsman said the cricketers were under tremendous pressure during the World Cup, not only because of the competition alone but more so from the snarling fans.

"They (the fans) were constantly breathing down our necks, I would say," said Yuvraj. "It becomes hard to take that kind of nagging stuff all the time."

Yuvraj, however, insisted that winning the World Cup was the best thing to ever happen to him, and the high is yet to fade. "Every morning, for the next four years, I'm going to wake up and say, 'I belong to a team that is the world champion'. So many great players have outstanding careers but never win a World Cup. This team has, and no one can ever take that away from us."

When asked about the fiasco of the batting PowerPlays in the game against South Africa, Yuvraj said: "Sometimes the team management would decide to take the PowerPlay, though the batsmen on the field were reluctant to. That's what happened against South Africa too.
Eventually we decided it was best to let the batsmen on the field take the call," he said referring to his team's only lost game in the World Cup.—Agencies

Tongue In some countries the opposing teams actually get shot  at...........Wasn't the Sri Lankan Cricket team shot at in Pakistan a while back and that's why none of the teams want to go play in Pakistan since? Tongue  Not only that in some countries the fans actually pressure the players to bash neighboring countries and religions........For example, when in  India, Afridi was all praises for India and Indians but once back home he was forced to change his views and attack Indians by calling them small hearted.......Tongue go figure......Big smile How surprising that a Pakistani newspaper such as "Dawn" is trying to put words into  Indian player's mouths? Tongue After all we all know how unbiased the Pakistani media is........The Pakistani media actually reported that the Sri Lankan team tried to shoot itself and that there was no attempt to shoot them while they were in Pakistan......Tongue

Oh I ma sure it happens in other countries too. It is just that in India the passion for this game is so intense that it hurts when we don't win... there is no harmful intention of the common man.... this is the game that they look up to. and not trying to point fingers or anything it happens in mainly Asian countries, like Pakistan, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh. This includes India. Now I simply ask please don't bash this post.
