Yuvraj Singh has played the Indian Premier League (IPL) ever since the tournament’s inaugural edition. The southpaw has turned out to be one of the hottest picks in the T20 extravaganza as the franchise owners have shelled out significant amounts for the experienced campaigner. However, with age, his abilities are on the wane and he isn’t the force he used to be even a couple of years ago.
In the last year’s IPL, Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) picked up him and he flattered to deceive. Subsequently, he was in and out of the team and was eventually released by the team, captained by off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin. The left-handed batsman had a chance of taking the Kings’ to victory on a couple of instances, but the opponents got him on his knees.

Nevertheless, he decided to register himself in the 2019 IPL auctions, that took place in December last year in Jaipur. He had a base price of INR 1 crore and went unsold in the first instance. Fortunately, the Mumbai Indians (MI), owned by Mukesh Ambani, picked up him at his base price, just when it was perceived that the 37-year-old won’t find any bidders this time around.
Yuvraj is all set to play under the leadership of Rohit Sharma, who won the IPL for MI as many as three times- 2013, 2015 and 2017 respectively. Recently, the franchise also released Yuvraj’s jersey for the tournament with number ’12’ on the back. In the meantime, Mumbai posted a picture on their official Instagram handle where Singh was wearing Rohit’s 45-number jersey.

In the meantime, Ritika Sajdeh, to whom Rohit has been married since December 13, 2015, found it a weird that his brother (Yuvraj) wore Rohit’s jersey. Ritika replied to one of the posts and wrote, “My brother wearing my husbands’ jersey is all sorts of weird.”
