New Delhi: One of India’s best batters and an absolute joy to watch in full flight, Yuvraj Singh has announced that he plans to return to the pitch next year. In June 2019 Yuvraj had announced his retirement from all forms of cricket. Yuvraj took to Instagram to announce that he will be back playing cricket in February 2022. He wrote, “God decides your destiny!! On public demand, I will be back on the pitch hopefully in February! Isn’t anything like this feeling! Thank you for your love and wishes to mean a lot to me! Keep supporting India, it’s our team and a true fan will show his or her support in tough times”.

Yuvraj won the Player of the Tournament in the 2011 World Cup where he was at his best with both the bat and ball. Yuvraj scored 362 runs at an average of 90.50 and claimed 15 wickets too. Yuvraj played the best cricket of his life in the 2011 World Cup but he was diagnosed with cancer a few days after the conclusion of the 2011 World Cup. Yuvraj is also well remembered for hammering Stuart Broad for six sixes in an over in the 2007 T20 World Cup in South Africa. Yuvraj played 40 Tests, 304 ODIs and 58 T20Is during his storied career. He scored 11,778 runs across formats and took 148 wickets as well.

It is still unclear as to what tournaments he is aiming to play. In his social media post, he urged the fans to keep supporting the Indian team which is struggling at the ongoing ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2021 in UAE after losing both their opening matches against Pakistan and New Zealand.
