In an interview with Sportstar,Veteran cricketer Yuvraj Singh has thrashed all the rumours surrounding his retirement from Cricket and argued he still have the same passion and desire to represent India in future.

Yuvraj Singh who was the star player and played the most crucial part in winning the World Cup back in 2011 has been overlooked by the selectors because of his current poor form. 

Yuvraj Singh will be playing for Kings XI Punjab in upcoming VIVO IPL 2018, as the franchise picked up the local lad in the recently concluded auction. 

“I don’t want to leave the game with any regret, thinking I should have played for some more years. I want to go when I feel it is the right time to go, when I feel I have done my best and I could not have done any more than this. I am still playing because I am enjoying playing cricket, not just because I have to play for India or I have to play the IPL. The motivation is definitely to play for India. I feel two or three IPLs are left in me,” Yuvraj told Sportstar.

“The journey has been nice. I have been a fighter, taking on tough situations. I like being a pillar of strength to people, for those suffering from cancer or going through other issues in life. I want to be known as someone who never gave up. Whether I play for India or not, I will give my 100 per cent on the field,” he added.

The 36-year-old left hander is keen to make an impression in upcoming IPL and also looking to play IPL for more 2 to 3 seasons, as he don’t want to give up the game with any regret. 

“Earlier, teams were batsman-heavy. The franchises would spend more money on batsmen who could also bowl. It has changed now. They want to spend on bowlers as well. The pace of the game has changed and the bowlers are as important as the batsmen. AB de Villiers has taken the game to a new level. Players are playing more dynamic shots. People have got better at their game.”

 “Commentating is not my forte. Cancer (YouWeCan Foundation) is going to be my area of work in the future. I love supporting young kids, I like interacting with the younger generation. Coaching is in my mind. I would identify underprivileged kids and focus on their sport and education. Education is as important as sport. You need to focus on both. Sport should not come at the cost of education,” Yuvraj concluded
