Indian middle-order batsman Yuvraj Singh who has been struggling for form for the last year or so will soon come back to his normal best feels Sri Lankan spin-wizard Muttiah Muralitharan.
"Yuvraj is a great batsman. All cricketers go through bad phases. I think, the media has to be careful in criticizing him. This has put a lot of pressure on him and he is reacting (affecting his batting)," Muralitharan said.
"But he will certainly make an impact at the 2011 World Cup," he added.
Muralitharan was speaking on the sidelines of a function, where he was felicitated for becoming the first cricketer to scalp 800 Test wickets.
In the recently concluded tri-nation ODI series in Sri Lanka, Yuvraj had averaged only 18.75, having scored 75 runs in four matches with 38 as his highest score.
