Yuvraj Singh is 37 years old and at this age, his international career for India is all, but over. However, the southpaw hasn’t given up on his favourite sport by any stretch of the imagination. Quite a number of times, he has posted videos or pictures, captioned with motivational quotes, signifying his love for the game. Recently, the veteran played only five first-class matches for Punjab.

The experienced campaigner didn’t taste much success and could get only a handful of runs under his belt. Moreover, he was also not entrusted with the leather. The Chandigarh-born last donned the Indian colours when the national team toured the West Indies for a limited-overs series back on June 30, 2017. With a number of players coming to the fore, Yuvraj’s comeback looks bleak.

He has some cricketing assignments in the upcoming months as he was picked up by Rohit Sharma-captained Mumbai Indians in the 12th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL). He didn’t get picked in the first instance after which, the Mukesh Ambani-owned franchise brought him. The experienced Yuvraj recently was a part of the India-Maldives Friendship Cricket Series 2019.

The innovative blow

Yuvraj didn’t last long and could only score 17 runs from six deliveries in the clash between Air India and the Maldives Cricket Team. His knock was laced with one boundary and a couple of monstrous blows one of which came off an audacious reverse-sweep. The bowler came from around the wicket and churned out a full-length ball. At that point in time, India A’s score was 71 for no loss.

Yuvraj got into position even before the bowler released the cherry. The bowler paused on his run-up and the left-hander got ready to play a reverse-sweep. The off-break bowler couldn’t adjust his line and length, and Singh smacked the leather hard with all his might. The ball cleared the ropes effortlessly.
