Yuvraj Singh may be in his main past but the experienced all-rounder said on Sunday that he would give his best shot for the forthcoming World Cup. "Cricket has given me everything. When I leave the game, I want to do my best. I do not want to go with any regrets, "said the 2011 World Cup winner, who is here against Punjab for the Ranji Trophy Elite Group B match of Punjab.
The 37-year-old, who was bought by Mumbai Indians for a base price of Rs1 crore in the IPL auction, took a look at T20 spoilers to return.
"I am doing our best, this is our last league Ranji Trophy match and if we can qualify, then let's see. After this, we have a national T20 tournament and then we have IPL, I will give my best shot and I would hope for the best, "Yuvraj said at Jadavpur University Salt Lake Campus Ground.
Yuvraj praised India's glorious performance under the leadership of Virat Kohli in the Test series in Australia.
He said, 'Of course, his experience in batting is not as much as he used to be before. But this is a great effort of the people. Especially, (Cheteshwar) Pujara, (Virat) Kohli, (Jasprit) Bumrah. It is great to see Rishabh (Pant) going down the order and making big runs. This is a great sign for Indian cricket for the future.
"Whenever we visited Australia, it is a very difficult tour. We had the opportunity to win the series, it was a draw. Then the next time Australia won 2-1, "he recalled the 2003-04 and 2007-08 tour.
Yuvraj praised Pant, who made a Test century in England and Australia within months from his debut.
"He came last year, he was selected for India, all said that he plays a lot of shots, he dares, he does not have a brain. Yuvraj said," After one year of being out of the IPL Due to being a good IPL, this player has scored two centuries. "
In this episode, Yuvraj said that his 19-year-old teammate Shubhaman Gill is an exciting prospect and should play for India after the 2019 World Cup.
"Definitely he is someone who can represent India for a long time, he is a very special talent. After a long time, I have seen a young man whose batting I want to see. After that, he should make it edge. "Shubhaman's performance has been at the top of the season, in which he scored 629 runs in seven innings at an average of 125.80.
Emphasizing the need to take care of the youth, Yuvraj said: "It all depends on how well we care for our youth. You have to give them the confidence to excel. The main example is Rishabh Pant. "Yuvraj said that he is sharing his experience with the team.
He said, "I enjoy playing with the Punjab team. Especially in the last three-four sessions, I have played many domestic cricket. Whatever I have achieved, I try and give it to young people.
"We have a very talented side. But I think there is a lack of risk in terms of playing outside. The more you play cricket in the game of Chennai, Bangalore, Delhi, Hyderabad, your cricket will be better, "Yuvraj concluded.
