Yuvraj Singh is sizzling as a bowler in the ongoing IPL, having got his second hat-trick of the tournament on Sunday, and the Kings XI Punjab captain is extremely content that his amazing performance came in a winning cause.

Punjab beat Deccan by just one-run margin to keep their semifinal hopes alive.

"What can I say, I think I should start bowling than batting. Last time when I took hat-trick, we lost. It was a very close game. I am happy to be on the winning side in the end," he said after the match.

Yuvraj lauded his bowlers who bowled well in crunch situations in the humdinger of a match.

"The boys knew if we lose we are out. So everyone hung in. We bowled well under pressure. (Kumar) Sangakkara batted well and then Brett Lee, Irfan Pathan, Piyush Chawla and myself bowled well. It was a collective effort. We are hitting the bar everyday," he said.

Deccan skipper Adam Gilchrist also praised Yuvraj for his captaincy.

"It was amazing game of cricket. Spinners were bowling well for both the teams and it was clever use of by Yuvraj of his spin bowlers," he said.
