Yuvi talks about retirement plans after his fifty against Delhi
Mumbai Indians might have lost the match to Delhi Capitals in their opening fixture but Yuvraj Singh won their hearts. The elegant cricketer is playing the game after a long time and his presence on the pitch was so crucial for him as well as for his fans who finally got the opportunity to see him playing. Initially, he took time to pace the innings and once he got set, he played like ‘Yuvraj Singh’.
With a strike-rate of above 150, it just gave a feeling to the fans that the sixer king is back to his prime. He smashed three towering sixes and five fours to his first-ever half century (53) for his new franchise Mumbai Indians. This was Yuvraj Singh’s first half-century since IPL 2017.
After Mumbai’s 37-run loss to Delhi Capitals, Yuvraj Singh spoke to the reporters at the press conference, talking about his future. He stressed on the fact that he is not even thinking about retirement given his lack of consistency.
Yuvraj Singh said that he will call it quits from the sport once the time comes. Yuvi has been in and out of the Indian cricket team due to his poor run of form in the last couple of years but that doesn’t really bother him now as he is focussing to play some good cricket.
“When the time comes, I will be the first one to hang up my boots. I spoke to Sachin (Tendulkar) as well and he has gone through such a time at 38-39. Talking to him makes things easier for me. In the last two years, I have been up and down.
I started playing cricket because I enjoyed the game and then I was not playing for Indian. It was U-14, U-16, so till the time I enjoy, I will play,” Yuvi concluded.
