Don’t tell me that I can’t do something: Yuvraj Singh

Yuvraj Singh is undoubtedly one of India’s most premier all-rounders to have played the game. He made his debut way back in 2000 and thereafter carved himself a reputation as a brute force to reckon with. In 2011, he became the Player of the Tournament in the Cricket World Cup, which India won by beating Sri Lanka in the final at the iconic Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai.
However, the last one year hasn’t been fruitful for the Chandigarh-born cricketer by any stretch of the imagination. The 36-year-old last represented India when the national team toured the West Indies in July 2017. Thereafter, he went out of the selectors’ radar owing to his poor form. He represented Kings XI Punjab in this year’s IPL and couldn’t live up to the expectations.
Yuvraj working hard for the domestic season
Throughout the event, he looked a pale shadow of his glorious past. He could score only 65 runs in eight matches at a dismal average of 10.83. Moreover, he couldn’t weave his magic with the leather either. However, the veteran isn’t ready to give up the ghost by any means despite getting a few suggestions that he shouldn’t resort to certain training methods because of his age.
Currently, he is getting himself geared up for the upcoming domestic season. The 2018-19 Vijay Hazare One Day tournament is scheduled to get underway on September 19 and Punjab are set to play their first match against Himachal Pradesh at KSCA Stadium in Alur. While Punjab’s squad hasn’t been announced yet, Yuvraj is likely to find a place in the team.
Recently, he uploaded a video where he can be seen training his heart out. He captioned the video and wrote, “Last year I was told that m old for power training & shd stick to my normal routines. Dont tell me I cant do something cause m going to #doitagain till I reach my goals Look forward to start of a new season. Remember its never too late to learn something new n achieve it.”
