Yuvraj Singh named for Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy probables. Although, his comeback in the domestic circuit is still vague. He is yet to get assent from BCCI (Board of Control for Cricket in India). Yuvraj Singh is coming out of retirement because of the request of Punjab Cricket Association secretary Puneet Bali.
When did Yuvraj retire from all forms of cricket?
Yuvraj Singh announced his retirement from International and competitive in June 2019. Moreover, he mentioned playing foreign Franchise League. In 2019 Yuvraj played for Toronto Nationals in Global T20 League Canada. He scored 153 runs in 5 matches with the highest score of 51. He also participated in Abu Dhabi T10 League, representing Maratha Arabians. There he made runs with a strike rate of 169.23 in 4 innings.
BCCI’s protocol says no active Indian players are permitted to play in any foreign league. So a concern erupts if he will get approval from BCCI.
The southpaw played his last international match against West Indies in 2017, scoring 39 runs. In his last IPL (2019) he played for Mumbai Indians. He notched up 98 runs in 4 matches.
