Yuvraj wants to involve in coaching
Former India all-rounder Yuvraj Singh announced his retirement from international cricket last year. Though Yuvraj is still playing franchise cricket, i.e. Indian Premier League (IPL).
However, he will also say goodbye to the IPL and pick up the bat-pad very soon. Earlier, the member of India’s World Cup winning team gave a hint about his future plans.
He has no interest in commentary. On the contrary, Yuvraj Singh wants to employ himself in the coaching profession in the future. That’s what he told former England captain Kevin Pietersen on Instagram Live.
Kevin Pietersen asked Yuvraj to join him in the commentary box. But the former Indian left-arm all-rounder has other plans. “I will probably start coaching,” he said.
“I’m more interested in coaching than commentary. My knowledge of ODI cricket is deep. I will be able to share my experience with the cricketers who will be batting at number four, five or six. I can say what kind of mentality is required to bat in that position. I would probably like to be a mentor in the beginning. If it goes well, then I will think of becoming a full-time coach.”
His desire is to work mainly with young cricketers. Then the future generation will be able to develop well with his hands.
Yuvraj has his own academies in several states of India. However, he is not the support staff of any IPL team. Or, he is not associated with any other group. Yuvraj wants to work as a mentor first. In that case, he can be associated with any IPL franchise or any international team.
He can then gradually become a full-time coach. There are many former cricketers in India who coached elsewhere before taking charge of the national team. Such as Anil Kumble, Bharat Arun, Sanjay Bangar. Yuvraj said goodbye to cricket in June last year. However, he also played in Canada’s Global Twenty20 and UAE’s T-10 League last year.
