Yes. You are right. Yuvraj Singh shined both with the bat and the bowl. I think, his was a great performance during the second match against Sri Lanka. Though we cannot say that he won the match single-handedly, because there were other notable performances that of Virender Sehwag and the Captain Dhoni himself, Yuvi was the standout player and very very deservingly won the man of the match award. Apart from that as you said, about Sachin Tendulkar. I was also going to speak about the same. Sachin sparked in two matches in that championship. He hit two consecutive hundreds against Australia in that series. And one of them came on his birthday. I still remember him talk when he said that I want many more birthdays like this. Yuvraj too said that this was his best birthday.
