Yuvi mulls international retirement, may play foreign T20 leagues


All good things come to an end one day and it clearly seems that India’s veteran Yuvraj Singh might have already played his last match for India. With stiff competition in the team and with age being the factor, Yuvraj Singh is now unlikely to play for India once again.

Well, he is one of greatest limited overs cricketers the world has ever seen and was one who turned out to be hero for India in ICC tournaments. With no place in the side, he has to take the next step, which means he is mulling retirement from international cricket and to start new innings in ICC approved foreign Twenty20 leagues.

Yuvraj Singh would make a final call only if he gets the nod from the BCCI. It has been observed that Yuvraj has come to terms that he is unlikely to play for India.

“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 offers,” a top BCCI source privy to the development, told PTI.

“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.

Yuvraj Singh was last seen plying the trade for Mumbai Indians in this season’s IPL but he didn’t get mah opportunities and maybe this might have been the reason for him to think about future plans.
