Yuvraj Singh Mulls Retirement, Looking To Ply His Trade In Foreign T20 Leagues
Once again, the left-handed batsman Yuvraj Singh had a poor season with the bat in the Indian Premier League. His chances for the ICC World Cup 2019 also looks bleak with the quality players around the unit for the selection panel. Meanwhile, he is eyeing to take retirement and participate in the foreign T20 leagues.
Yuvraj Singh has come to the conclusion that he might not play for the Indian National Cricket Team anymore, as his fitness and form with the bat has become an area of concern. The stylish southpaw had a chat with the Board of Control for Cricket in India and looking to take the final decision.
Yuvraj Singh has offers to play out – BCCI source
As per the reports on Times of India, it is learnt that Yuvraj Singh wants to take a clarity call with the BCCI regarding his chances to play in the overseas tournaments after resigning. It is learnt that a lot of t20 teams across the globe are already waiting for his signing.
“Yuvraj is thinking of calling it quits from international and first-class cricket. He would like to speak to the BCCI and get more clarity on plying his trade in tournaments like GT20 (Canada), Euro T20 Slam in Ireland and Holland as he has offered,” a BCCI source privy to the development, told PTI on Sunday.
“Irfan was told to withdraw his name from the draft. As far as Yuvraj is concerned, we need to check the rules. Even if he retires from first class cricket, he will still be an active T20 player registered under BCCI. The rule needs to be checked,” a senior BCCI functionary said.
On T10 competition:
Further, the BCCI functionary quoted that they are considering the senior retired players to play in the T10 competition, as the T10 format hasn’t been officially registered yet.
“The T10 might have been approved by the ICC but it’s still not an acknowledged format. But yes, going forward, as and when the players association takes shape, the case for retired players may come up for consideration.”
Well, it would be interesting to see whether the Board of Control for Cricket in India would accept the plea made by Yuvraj Singh. The stylish southpaw is far away in the race for the place in the Indian National Cricket Team, which would push Yuvraj Singh to call curtains on his career.
