Lahore:India's middle order batsman Yuvraj Singh said the One-day series betweeen India and Pakistan have been a "close affair" and believed his team could still stage a comeback if it played to its potential.

"India and Pakistan series is always special. We have had some close matches and we can still bounce back," Yuvraj said ahead of the crucial fourth One-dayer against Pakistan at the Gaddafi Stadium.

Yuvraj said the toss played a vital role in the last match at Peshawar which India lost by four-wickets.

"The wicket was quicker in the morning at Peshawar. The toss was vital. I thought 244 was a decent score. My idea was to stay till the end when we lost a couple of quick wickets."

Yuvraj emerged as the top-scorer with a 76-ball 65 to help India cross the 200-run mark after its top order collapsed in the face of some tight bowling by Pakistan seamers.

Asked about his experience in Pakistan so far, he said "it has been an enjoyable trip so far. We have not been getting enough time to go out but once the Test matches start, we will get some time".
