Yuvraj Singh’s fan? Well, here is some good news for you as the southpaw has decided to come out of his retirement.
Singh, who retired from international cricket in June 2019, was motivated after mentoring Punjab players in Indian domestic cricket and now wants to come back. He wrote to Punjab Cricket Association about his decision. He had said that for now, he would only foucs on playing Twenty20 cricket for Punjab.
As per the reports, PCA secretary Puneet Bali had approached Yuvraj last month and requested him to come out of retirement last month and return to the Punjab team as a player-cum-mentor.
“We requested Yuvraj five, six days ago and we are waiting his response. It will be really good for Punjab cricket if he can play and mentor them at the same time,” Bali told PTI in August.
Yuvraj has been an exceptional player to India and a game saver for India in numerous instances including one that I recall was in Australia 3-4 years ago. India needed some 24 runs in the last over to win in a T20 match to whitewash Australia in Australia and Yuvi got them with ease.
Also, Yuvraj was the Player of the Series in the 2011 World Cup but a bout with cancer in 2012 halted his career temporarily.
In a glorious 17-year-long international career, Yuvraj played 40 Tests, 304 One-day Internationals and 58 T20Is. Overall, he has played 231 T20s and scored 4857 runs at 25.69
