One of the beautiful things attached to the franchise-based cricket is that the tournament lay a wonderful platform for the players to mingle with the other cricketers in the world. We already witnessed many cricketers having their best friends in the other countries, all thanks to franchise-based tournament. In the latest, Yuvraj Singh of India, who is playing for Maratha Arabians in T10 Abu Dhabi League had a fun time with Chadwick Walton of West Indies, who also plays for the same team.

Yuvraj Singh shared a video on his social media, in which, Chadwick Walton was seen trying to speak the Punjabi language, which left the stylish southpaw of India in splits. The duo enjoyed the time during the course of the video. And also, Yuvraj Singh tried to converse in the same language with Chadwick Walton to add a bit of entertainment from his end.
So far, Yuvraj Singh has played two matches in the tournament but has not succeeded to hit his stride. In the first game, he was dismissed after scoring six runs on his T10 league debut followed by a 14-run cameo against Qalandars on Sunday. During his brief stay, Yuvraj Singh knocked a couple of sixes, which sent fans into a frenzy.
Maratha Arabians tops the Group points table:
Currently, Maratha Arabians are at top in their group with 2 wins in 3 games. Though they lost the first game of the season, they were smart enough in making a comeback with back-to-back wins against Qalandars and Team Abu Dhabi.
The 37-year-old missed out on Maratha Arabians’ game against Team Abu Dhabi on Monday due to back spasm. The all-rounder is confident of playing in the next game. Yuvraj Singh, recently, revealed his interest in taking up the coaching role after playing for a couple of years in league cricket.
“There are a lot of leagues coming up in the next two to three years, so I am looking forward to playing a few of them. It’s good for me that I play for about two or three months, instead of playing the whole year. I am enjoying that for the next few years and then hopefully can get into coaching after practising that side by side,” he added.
