But, in his recent interview, the India international Yuvraj Singh has admitted that, he was about to retire from the game of cricket.
As after spending more than three years out of the Indian ODI team, the India international Yuvraj Singh was about to retire from the games of cricket, but it was the Indian skipper Virat Kohli, whose faith kept him away from Retiring and recently recalled for the ongoing series against England, where the Punjab born Indian all-rounder Yuvraj Singh smashed a career-best 150 to power India to a formidable score of 381/6 after the team was reeling at 25/3. A 256-run partnership with veteran Mahendra Singh Dhoni revived the team’s hopes and helped the hosts win the match by 15 runs, also clinching the three-match series 2-0.
And after India’s series clinching win in the second ODI, the 35-year-old Indian international admitted that he could have retired from the game, but it was the Indian skipper Virat Kohli, whose faith kept him away from Retiring,
As Yuvraj said, “Self-confidence is always there when you have the backing of the team and captain. I think Virat has showed a lot of trust in me and it was very important for me that people in the dressing room trust me,”
