6 Reasons Why Yuvraj Singh does Justice to his Most Expensive Price Tag:
1) ICON PLAYER
Every team has a face. An icon to whom the fans and the players look upto. The most successful teams in IPL have always had an icon: Tendulkar for Mumbai Indians, Dhoni for Chennai Super Kings ,Rahul Dravid for Rajasthan Royals. You name it, it’s there. Iconic players need to be Indian and that has been the successful formula. Till now the Daredevils did not have one since the time Sehwag and Gambhir left. Now they have one in the form of Yuvraj Singh.
2) CROWD PULLER
IPL is about crowds. The more the merrier. Now crowds in India flock to see their favourite players in action. One has to agree that there are no Chris Gayles in every team. Yuvraj has given Delhi a reason to come and watch the game again. He has given them the hope of raining sixes which were long missing.
3) COMMERCIAL VALUE
The IPL is a money game. There are no two ways about it. Cricket yes, but the investors are looking to make money out of the game. Money is reflected in terms of sponsorships and they only come from good performances. With Yuvraj raring to prove a point, he is a masterstroke to say the least.
4) MAN ON A MISSION
The man who almost single handedly won us the last world cup has been left out from the team this time around. Here is a man who has fought his way back from cancer and into the national team. And this time he will be raring to prove a point to all his detractors on and off the field. Watch out for him. We mean it!
5) MYTH ABOUT HIS FORM
Yuvraj’s domestic form of late has been outstanding. In cricket form is everything, starting from the way the player feels both physically and mentally. Yuvraj has been in top nick this Ranji season and he is bound to carry this form in the IPL.
Best among the Indians: The Daredevils franchise needed someone Indian to be their icon player and in the recently concluded auction he was the best bet among the Indians.

6) FAN CONVERSION
It happens that people supporting a player automatically tend to deviate towards the IPL team in which he is playing in, like Sachin Tendulkar’s huge army of supporters used to support Mumbai Indians irrespective of their region.Similarly Yuvraj has a massive fan base in India and it will be no wonder if they all turn Delhi fans, backing their supersta, specially his exclusion from ICC Cricket World Cup 2015’s squad.
