Former India batsman Yuvraj Singh has dropped a major hint about his comeback by resuming training in the nets. The batting legend had announced his retirement from international as well as domestic cricket last year after the World Cup snub.
But in September this year, he sensationally announced his comeback plans. Yuvraj Singh had said he was interested in playing at least T20 cricket for Punjab as and when the much delayed domestic season kicks off.
Yuvraj Singh had a change of mind after he spent a considerable amount of time working with the young Punjab quartet of Shubman Gill, Abhishek Sharma, Prabhsimran Singh and Anmolpreet Singh at the PCA Stadium in Mohali at the behest of the Punjab Cricket Association.
And he could be soon seen sharing the dressing room with the Punjab players. Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy, the domestic T20 tournament in the country, is set to be played next year and Yuvraj Singh has seemingly started preparing for it. On Saturday, he took to Instagram to post a video of himself batting in the nets.
“Going into the new year like! Was good to get to be back in the grind. Sometimes it’s important to be away to realise what you love doing the most. Thank you everyone for your love and wishes,” wrote Yuvraj Singh as he also celebrated his 39th birthday.
It also looks like Yuvraj Singh has got the green light from the BCCI to play in India’s domestic arena again. While announcing his comeback plans, he had revealed he sent mails to BCCI president Sourav Ganguly and secretary Jay Shah, seeking their permission to come out of retirement.
Yuvraj Singh is one of the greatest match-winners to have played for India. He was instrumental when India won the T20 World Cup in 2007 and the 50-over World Cup four years later. The southpaw had six sixes in an over off Stuart Broad during the T20 World Cup before coming up with the Man of the Tournament effort in the 2011 World Cup.
