I Don’t Want to Leave the Game With Any Regret…

New Delhi: Indian batsman Yuvraj Singh, who has been out of the team since June last year, is hopeful of making a comeback to the Indian team. He feels that he still has two years of cricket left in him. Yuvraj has had a start-stop career ever since he came into the national side after recovering from cancer. Players like Kedar Jadhav and Manish Pandey have come into the side in his absence, and performed decently well for the team.

Speaking to Sportstar Live, Yuvraj even talked about his life after cricket. “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,” said Yuvraj.

Yuvraj also answered when he is going to retire from the game. He said, “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.

"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.”
