1.

1. To mantain the right -left combination.
2. He felt that he himself was better equipped to read Mural (specifically his doosra) having played with him for Chennai in IPL.

2.

At that time the Off Spinners were boaling and this inspires Dhoni to come up before Yubi as he himself is the right hander and can face the off spinner well.
Further, as being the Captain, he might have decided to shoulder the then pressure and to maintain the left-right hand combination with Gambhir on the other wicket.
It was a good decsn.

He wanted some time to settle down and also thought that If yuvi remains the opposition would be a bit tense

1. He knew that immediately after Kohli got out....there was going to be so much pressure...and Captain Cool decided to promote himself to act as a sponge to absorb the pressure and keep rotating the strike.
2. Its always difficult and exasperating to set fields for a left - right combination at the crease...and Yuvraj was also left handed...so he decided to partner Gambhir.
