New Delhi: Kings XI Punjab's Yuvraj Singh has blamed his injury breakdowns of the past few months on his diving technique and said his fielding has gone haywire.

"It's just unfortunate that I've got these injuries in the last 4 months. Hopefully, you know, next coming...we've got a very important year for the Indian team, and should not be getting injured this year, fingers crossed," said Yuvraj, who is currently recuperating from a wrist injury.

Yuvraj Singh also said that injuries have left him frustrated and he can't wait to get back on the field.

Yuvraj said that he shares a good rapport with Sangakkara.

"I've been lagging behind six months now...I've been injured a lot...and it's been very frustrating sitting out, and I really want to get really fit and have a good year this time, he added.

Yuvraj, who was replaced as Kings XI captain Kumar Sangakkara at the start of the IPL season, said the job is quite a challenge.

"When things are not right on the field, you become aggressive sometimes, sometimes it gets the best out of you, sometimes it gets the worst out of you, but captaincy is a challenge and when you're captaining a tournament for 40 days, it's actually, you look forward to it," he said to a news channel.

Yuvraj insisted that he shared a good rapport with Sangakkara.
