Yuvraj Singh made his intentions clear about reversing his retirement to make a comeback for Punjab in domestic cricket. The former India all-rounder sent out a mail to board president Sourav Ganguly and secretary Jay Shah to seek permission about the same. However, a board official, said that there might be some sort of hindrance in the return.
The official also mentioned that Yuvraj Singh will get a lot of time to spent with the youngsters in the Punjab squad and might be able to pass on his experience to them. It the report is to be believed the board official also spoke about the pension which Yuvraj Singh will receive.
“Getting to spend time with someone as experienced as Yuvraj could be the best thing to happen for the young players coming into the Punjab squad. But then, he has not only received a one-time benefit post-retirement but also reportedly gets a pension of around Rs 22,500,” a BCCI official told ANI.
These are all documented in the accounts of the BCCI as well from the time of his retirement in 2019. The final call lies with the board,” the official said.
Yuvraj Singh, out of favour from the national team, had decided to call time on his glittering career on June 10, 2019 at a specially arranged press conference in Mumbai. It was his last press conference as a player.
Yuvraj Singh was instrumental for India in the 2007 T20 World Cup and who can forget his all-round role in 2011 World Cup for which he was named the man-of-the-series. He was once the poster boy of Indian cricket team and brought down the curtains on his career spanning nearly 19 years and 400 matches.
