Dashing Yuvraj Singh determined to play 2019 World Cup

Yuvraj Singh is not ruling out another run in the format with India slated to play about 12 matches in the next 12 months at home.

Once a limited-overs giant, Yuvraj Singh has been in and out of the Indian team in recent years but the all-rounder believes he still has enough cricket in him to look forward to the 2019 World Cup in England and Wales.

The 34-year-old left-handed batsman has seen it all in an international career that started as an 18-year-old in the 50-over ICC KnockOut Trophy in 2000. He was crucial for India during their 2007 World Twenty20 victory in South Africa and was also player-of-the-tournament in the team’s 50-over World Cup win on home soil in 2011.

One of the cleanest strikers of the ball, as England fast bowler Stuart Broad found out when he was bludgeoned for six sixes in an over during the 2007 World Twenty20, Yuvraj cut a sorry figure at the crease during his 21-ball 11 against Sri Lanka in the 2014 World T20 final.

Many blamed that knock for sapping India’s momentum and wrote off Yuvraj’s international ambitions in the wake of the defeat. But he again went back to the domestic circuit and scored enough to earn a spot in the squad for the recent World T20.
