Former Indian cricketer Yuvraj Singh reveals his biggest regret playing in the Indian Premier League. Yuvraj said that his biggest regret is that he never got settled playing in one franchise in the Indian Premier League.
“I was never settled in whichever franchise I played for. I didn't really get settled where you are made to play for one franchise or maybe two,” Yuvraj said while receiving the Lifetime Achievement Award at the 91st annual general meeting of the Indian Chambers of Commerce here.
Yuvraj Singh won two IPL titles with Sunrisers Hyderabad in 2016 and Mumbai Indians in 2019. Yuvraj Singh played for Kings XI Punjab, Royal Challengers Bangalore, Delhi Capitals, Sunrisers Hyderabad, Mumbai Indians.
Yuvraj was the man of the tournament in 2011 World Cup which he helped India win at home. Yuvraj also played a key part in the inaugural T20 World Cup in 2007 which India won in South Africa. Yuvraj famously hit six sixes from six balls in the tournament against England’s Stuart Broad.
Talking about his six sixes the left-handed batsman said, “It was a phenomenal tournament, it took cricket to the next level. Absolutely nobody was expecting us to win it. We played fearless cricket. We had a new captain. We lost a few crucial games and had to win all three to get to the finals. We just went and expressed ourselves.”
In 2014, Yuvraj Singh was the most expensive player sold in the history of IPL when Royal Challengers Bangalore bought him for Rs 14 crore. This year though he was unsold initially but Mumbai Indians bought him for his base price of Rs 1 crore in the last round of auction.
