Recently, Indian all-rounder Yuvraj Singh has made some shocking revelations about his retirement plans.
No, he is not retiring after Indian Premier League 2018, but instead revealed his future plans to retire in the coming time soon.
In a talk with ANI he told, “I am going to look to play till 2019, whatever cricket I get to play. I will take a call when that year is over’’.
"Everybody has to take a decision after a while. I have been playing international cricket since 2000, it has been almost 17-18 years on and off. So, I will definitely take a call after 2019’’, he added.
Even after clearing the yo-yo test in December 2017, the selectors overlooked him for the South African tour and Nidahas Trophy in Sri Lanka earlier this year.
Keeping that in mind, there are less chances for Yuvraj to play in the upcoming 2019 ICC World Cup in England.
The 36-year old batsman has played 304 ODIs, 40 Tests and 58 T20Is matches for India. He is currently associated with Kings XI Punjab in IPL 11.
Speaking on Chris Gayle being a part of Punjab team for the first-time, he said, “Oh, I am loving it. Chris has always been a friend off the field. He has been a great batsman, probably one of the most dangerous batsmen in the world and performing like a boss on the field. I am really happy for him and the way he is batting’’.
It will be interesting to see what BCCI selectors has in stored for the Indian all-rounder in the coming years.
