The video starts with Yuvraj asking MS Dhoni about his journey as captain of the Indian cricket team, to which Dhoni replied by saying, "The journey has been good, fantastic. It's good to have the players like you, the job becomes much more easier. Enjoyed my 10 years and hopefully I enjoy what more I have."
Yuvi says, "He was the best captain ever, I would like to tell you that and it's been amazing playing under you, winning three big championships - winning the World Cup and being the No.1 Test team."
Dhoni cuts him short and says, "Thanks to you, I witnessed the 6 sixes at the best seat." Yuvi replied, "Thanks mate! Thanks for giving me the opportunity to slog as always."
Yuvraj then asks, "Now, since you are not the captain, are you going to hit more sixes?"
Dhoni replies, "Let's see, if they bowl in my areas, the right areas and the situation permits, I will look to hit sixes."
India A lost the game by three wickets to England, but Dhoni and Yuvraj made a valuable contributions, scoring 68 not out (40 balls) and 56 (48 balls) respectively.
Yuvraj and Dhoni have been impeccable in the cricketing journey together over the last decade and the pair helped India win many games from difficult positions. These two were at the crease when India lifted the 50-over World Cup in Mumbai in 2011, after 28 years.
