Kochi:Dashing left-handed batsman Yuvraj Singh expressed happiness about his all round performance in fashioning India's serious-clinching four wicket win over England here yesterday.

Talking to reporters after receiving his second successive Man of the Match award, Yuvraj, who scored a scintillating century at Goa in the third ODI, said he was playing well ever since his century at Sri Lanka in the tri-series and would continue the good work.

Yuvraj's all round effort - two wickets, including a stunning caught and bowled and a crucial knock of 48 with the bat earned him the Man of the Match award.

'I scored a century in Lanka and since then, I have been batting really well. I have just worked on my batting. I have been playing cricket at this level for the last five years and it helps me learn a lot. It will also help me learn how to play in different situations.'

About young Suresh Raina, with whom he was involved in a crucial partnership after India lost quick wickets, Yuvaraj said, ''Raina is a very talented player and when he came out to bat with me, I told him that we needed to build a partnership so that the remaining batsmen won't have any pressure''.
