Yuvraj Singh, India’s former talisman batsman, had decided to call it a day in 2019 from all forms of the game. Despite retiring from the domestic and international stage, Yuvraj had made it clear that he would like to continue playing in the foreign T20 leagues. Subsequently, the southpaw batsman played in the Global T20 Canada league for the Toronto Nationals.
Following the Global T20 league, Yuvraj also played for Maratha Warriors in the T10 league. Yuvraj wants to ply his trade in the foreign T20 leagues but he is not sure when they would resume due to the outbreak of coronavirus pandemic. However, Yuvraj Singh decided not to put his name in the Caribbean Premier League draft.
Yuvraj Singh wants to play in foreign T20 leagues
Meanwhile, an Indian player has to retire from all the forms of the game, including the IPL to be eligible to get the NOC from the BCCI and play in the T20 leagues. Players like Manpreet Gony who played for Chennai Super Kings also played in the Global T20 league.
Speaking to the Hindustan Times, Yuvraj said, “I want to play in the international leagues; however, I don’t know when these leagues will resume, considering the pandemic.”
On the other hand, Yuvraj Singh recently stated that he was handled in an unprofessional way by the BCCI during the fag end of his career. Yuvraj last played for India in the three-match ODI series against the West Indies in June 2017. He scored 57 runs in that series.
Meanwhile, Yuvraj Singh was not at his best in the Indian Premier League. The left-hander played 132 IPL matches in which he scored 2750 runs at an average of 24.77. He also stated that he wanted to finish his career on a high after the IPL 2019 but he could only get four matches with Mumbai Indians.
Yuvraj Singh has always been a cynosure as he has produced some great performances. The southpaw still has some fuel left in the tank and he wants to enjoy by playing without any kind of pressure in the foreign T20 leagues.
