New Delhi, Apr 23: Indian batsman Yuvraj Singh, who played an instrumental role in India’s World Cup win in 2011, said on Sunday that he would take a call on his career after 2019 World Cup in England and Wales. The 36-year-old southpaw said he had been playing cricket for the last two decades and someday he would have to retire.
“I am going to look to play till 2019, whatever cricket I get to play. I will take a call when that year is over,” Singh told ANI.
“Everybody has to take a decision after a while. I have been playing international cricket since 2000, it has been almost 17-18 years on and off. So, I will definitely take a call after 2019,” he added.
Yuvraj played his last ODI in June 2017. He is currently playing in VIVO IPL 2018 for KXIP. He said his Punjab outfit can win the finals of this edition.
“We are looking ahead to first qualify in the last four and I think we have got a great team this year. We have got a very powerful batting attack, smart bowling attack, and hopefully we look to qualify and then see if we can win the finals,” he said.
He also showered praises at Punjab team-mate Chris Gayle.
“Oh, I am loving it. Chris has always been a friend off the field. He has been a great batsman, probably one of the most dangerous batsmen in the world and performing like a boss on the field. I am really happy for him and the way he is batting,” he said.
