Mahendra Singh Dhoni seems to be satisfied with Yuvraj Singh's cameo in the third and final T20 against Australia in Sydney and expects that the veteran left-hander would only get better as he plays more and more matches in the lead upto the ICC World T20 starting in
just over a month's time.

"Yuvraj can just go and express himself batting at No 5," said Dhoni.

"There will be less pressure on him and as he plays more and more games he will just open up more," continued the limited overs captain, adding, "I have never believed in a set batting order and according to situations and bowlers, we might need to create a gap in between the two left-handed batsmen (Yuvraj and Suresh Raina).

"At the moment,this seems like what will be a very good batting line-up," the skipper exuded confidence in the batting line-up."
