Yuvraj Singh hopeful of a national side comeback ahead of the World Cup
Yuvraj Singh is in a decent form in the ongoing Vijay Hazare Trophy, and that is why his chances are very slim at making it to the national squad as Indian team is well settled right now ahead of the next year’s ICC cricket world cup which is going to take place in England.
“My decision to make is that I want to go happily playing the game. I didn’t have a good domestic season last year, I had a bad Indian Premier League (IPL). I took a break and I thought that if I am looking to play another year or two years, I want to go playing this game happily because this game has given me everything,” Yuvraj said.
Yuvraj has scored 267 runs with a mediocre average of 34 in the Vijay Hazare Trophy campaign. his strike rate was around 81. He was the senior most member of the Punjab squad so he was working as a mentor as well as a top order batsman.
“So I went to England for five weeks to a training camp this summer, I worked hard on my fitness. I was in Cirencester, at a habitat centre. I worked with a trainer called James, a former Marine, for five weeks. And when I got back home, I had another three weeks on my own; I had eight weeks of fitness before I started the season. I didn’t have too much good (batting) practice before coming here, I just played one practice game against Madhya Pradesh. But I just felt mentally very good,” the southpaw said.
Yuvraj is almost 37yearsr old now. But still, he is performing pretty well for his age in the ongoing Vijay Hazare Trophy. He badly wants to represent his country in the most prestigious tournament, the ICC cricket world cup next year. But he says that it is not only in his hands to get selected for his national side.
