I am for 50-over cricket, says Yuvraj

Bangalore: India's ODI vice captain Yuvraj Singh ruled out the possibility of T20 cricket completely replacing the traditinal 50 over format.

"There is no doubt that Twenty20 has taken over a lot of cricket but 50 overs is here to stay," Yuvraj said.

"We got 50 overs World Cup which is a big thing," he told reporters on the sidelines of the launch of Mangalore United team in the Karnataka Premier League here today.

Tendulkar yesterday came up with a new proposal to save the 50-over format from the Twenty20 wave, suggesting that One-day matches be split into four innings of 25-over-a-side.

"I am for 50-over cricket. I think we should have 25 overs a side to start with. We should have 25 overs first for one side and then the other," Tendulkar had said.
