Yuvraj and Rayudu likely to be part of T10 league
Even after retiring from international cricket back in May, the former Indian cricketer and 2011 World Cup hero, Yuvraj Singh is hitting the headlines for all the right reasons. Yuvraj Singh is currently plying his trade for the Toronto Nationals in the Global T20 league 2019.
Despite facing some issues with his back, he has been waving his blade quite well, scoring some good runs and entertaining the fans at the best scene.
It is expected that Yuvraj Singh would be roped in for the T10 league which is scheduled to start on November 15, 2019.
Besides Yuvraj Singh, Ambati Rayudu is also likely to be a significant part of the tournament as well. Rayudu called curtains on his international career after being left of the Indian squad for the 2019 World Cup in England and Wales.
“We are very optimistic, and I think it is more about a number than willingness. Yuvraj has a certain expectation, and we can only afford so much, let us put it that way. We are trying to bridge that gap, but the intention is very clear: he definitely wants to play.
The same goes for other players who are retiring. There is an ongoing conversation, so we are pretty optimistic,” Shaji Ul Mulk, who is the chairman and founder of the T10 championship, was quoted as saying by The National.
The league was staged in Sharjah last season and has now shifted to the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi. Former Indian cricketers- RP Singh, Pravin Tambe, and Zaheer Khan participated in the tournament in 2018.
“Yuvraj or Ambati Rayudu, for example, will agree on a number, we will float that number to the team owners, then they have the choice. Usually, more than one team owner wants to have a name like Yuvraj, so then it goes to the draft, and it is up to the pick as to who gets him,” he said.
Ul Mulk went on to add that Eoin Morgan, Darren Sammy, Andre Russell and Shahid Afridi have all confirmed their return to the extravaganza.
