Former India cricketer Yuvraj Singh is currently enjoying the T10 League which is underway in Abu Dhabi. The left-hander is representing Maratha Arabians in the ongoing tournament. He recently saw his team register their first win of the tournament by beating Lahore Qalandars by 47 runs on Sunday.
In the recent match against Qalandars, Yuvraj smashed two consecutive sixes. It reminded everyone of 2007 when he smashed Stuart Broad for 6 sixes in the World T20 tournament. The left-hander only managed to score 14 runs.
The 37-year-old also contributed on the field with a run out. The ball looped over his head at short-fine leg. He ambled after it and lobbed it back on the turn without any noticeable urgency. By the time it made its way to wicketkeeper Chadwick Walton, both Philip Salt and his batting partner Dawid Malan were at the same end after a breakdown in communication. It was Salt who had to go.
Yuvraj was recently released by Mumbai Indians (MI) after playing for them last season. He will not be able to enter the auction pool as he had to retire from IPL to be eligible to play in Global T20 Canada and other T20 leagues around the world.
The Punjab cricketer started his IPL career with Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) and led the team to the semi-final in the inaugural season of the league. He later went on to play for Pune Warriors India (PWI) before joining Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) at a record price of Rs 14 Crore. He also played for Delhi Daredevils (now Delhi Capitals) who spent Rs 16 Crore to buy the all-rounder.
Yuvraj joined Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) in 2016 for Rs 7 Crore and rejoined KXIP in 2018 at his base price of Rs 2 Crore. However, he was released after one season. He went unsold in the first round of IPL 2019 but was bought by MI at his base price of Rs 1 Crore later.
