Man of the match Yuvraj Singh today said that Mohammed Hafeez's strategy to give Umar Gul an extra over earlier turned out to be decisive as it helped him target Saeed Ajmal at the death. Gul had bowled three of his four overs within the 16th over and it was Ajmal who went for 22 in the penultimate over where Yuvraj hit him for three sixes. "I think their best bowler Umar Gul finished one of his four overs early. The one that he was to bowl at the death. So Dhoni and I knew that one over would be bowled by a spinner and we would target him," Yuvraj told mediapersons at the post-match presentation ceremony. Yuvraj's 36-ball-72 had seven huge sixes but by his own admission, he never thinks about hitting sixes. "I don't think of hitting a six. I just back myself to react with my natural instincts. If it is there to be hit, I will hit it. I am just trying to watch the ball because if you make plans early and the ball is not there to be hit, you get out," he added. Although he agreed that T20 requires different mindset but there is no substitute to good cricketing shots. "I think T20 it is a different mindset but at the end of the day, you still have to play good cricketing shots. We have to bowl in the right areas to get good batsmen out. "It is just that in T20, you get less time to get set and you have straight away start hitting the balls. That is why batting averages aren't high and you don't get time to set in and hit those balls. But today, I got to bat in seventh over and got three to four overs to get set and that really made the difference," he said. PTI
