Singh’s Future In Cricket Looks Gloomy
Yuvraj Singh’s future in Indian Cricket appears to be gloomy. The hard hitting left handed batsman has not been selected in either of the two squads that have been announced recently by the selectors for the tour of Bangladesh and England.
Yuvraj was a part of the Indian team which had taken part in the World T20 Championship earlier this year, but, his performance in that tournament was not up to his standards. He played well in a couple of games, but, apart from that, he was off colour.
He ate up too many deliveries in the final match against Sri Lanka which resulted in India posting a very modest total of 130. He was heavily criticized for being that slow in such a crunch game.
However, in the recently finished 7th edition of the Indian Premier League, Yuvraj showed good form. He played a few blistering knocks coming in the middle order for his team Royal Challengers Bangalore, but, that didn’t prompt the selectors to give him one more go.
Yuvraj’s career is far from being over though. He still has age by his side. He is only 32 years of age at the moment and if his fitness remains good, there is no reason why he can’t play for another 5-6 years. But, to make a comeback into the Indian side, he would need to have a good first class season.
Yuvraj had played a big role in India’s World Cup victory in 2011. He had scored more than 400 runs and had taken 15 wickets to help India achieve the glory. He was named man of the tournament for his all round contribution. Nobody would have expected back then that his performance would dip down so considerably in three years’ time.
