Indian all-rounder Yuvraj Singh will continue to play cricket till 2019 before taking a call on his retirement.
Yuvraj will play for the kings XI Punjab in the upcoming IPL season 11 which will start from 7 April. He is looking forward for the satisfactory performance in this season as it will benefit him in the forthcoming 2019 World Cup.
On an exclusive interview, Yuvraj said, “I am looking forward to a good IPL. It’s a very important tournament for me as it will only set me to play cricket till 2019.i am looking to play cricket till 2019, whatever cricket I get to play and take a call after that”.
The biggest setback was faced by him after the 2011 World Cup victory was the life-threatening cancer, after which he has a regret that he couldn’t occupy a significant place in the test series.
India’s all rounder said in an interview that, “Definitely, in the first 6-7 years of my career when I was at my best I did not get a lot of opportunities because there were such great players in the test team and when I got an opportunity I was diagnosed with cancer. So that regret will always be there, but these things are never in my control. I am just looking forward to whatever cricket I get to play”.
Yuvraj praised the team India for their performance against the South Africa against the loss of 1-2 in the test.
All-rounder said, “I think it is a pretty great performance. They showed a lot of character after losing the test series. It was as a hard-fought test series, could have gone either way. But it was a very convincing win in the ODI series. Kohli led from the front with some big runs”.
He added, “spinner bowled very well especially Kuldeep and Yuzvendra Chahal and got South Africa into trouble. And then they stepped on the gas and won the T20 series by 2-1. Going abroad playing three series winning two definitely shows India’s dominance”.
