‘Shubman Gill is a fearless game-changer’: Yuvraj Singh

“Sleepless nights have become a lot more joyful as we welcome our little princess Aura,” Yuvraj Singh wrote beside a photo of his family he posted on social media on August 25. While Aura slept soundly on her father’s chest and sucked at a feeding bottle, Yuvraj’s wife, actor Hazel Keech, was pictured cradling their infant boy Orion. Yuvraj seemed satisfied, while Hazel grinned for the camera.

Based on his impressive performance for the national under-19 squad captained by Mohammad Kaif, with whom he would later share a brilliant partnership at Lord’s that helped India defeat England in the NatWest Series final in 2002, Yuvraj emerged as a genuine contender for the India cap. Yuvraj scored a breezy 69 at more than run-a-ball, while Kaif made an even faster 87 to stay unbeaten. Yuvraj has participated in countless Indian victories since then and has won seven ODI player of the series honours. During the 2007 World Cup, he scored a fifty in a T20 match in the then-fastest time (12 balls), tearing England’s Stuart Broad apart with six sixes in a row.Steel made up the person with the golden arm. 28 years after Kapil’s Devils ruled Lord’s, he led his nation to victory in the 2011 World Cup in India despite suffering from shortness of breath, blood in his vomit, and poor form. On flat subcontinental tracks, he had 362 runs at an average of 90.50 and 15 wickets at an economy rate of 5.0. Not to mention the electric stops and catches made on the pitch. Later that year, against New Zealand, he returned to cricket after his lung cancer treatment in the US ended in March 2012. He was hired by Royal Challengers Bangalore in 2014 for a then-record sum of Rs. 14 crore, and Delhi Daredevils acquired him the following year for Rs. 2 crore more. He triumphed in the Yuvraj resigned from international cricket two years after playing his final game, which was against the West Indies. The BCCI denied his appeal to return to the IPL and local cricket after he played in the Global T20 league in Canada and the T10 league in Abu Dhabi. The team’s No. 4 position has always been a problem, Indian skipper Rohit Sharma noted in August. Nobody has established themselves in the post since Yuvraj Singh, he claimed. In this special interview, Yuvraj discusses the problem and potential No. 4s for the Indian squad. Additionally, he discusses in-depth the all-rounders, contemporary Indian players, and the 2011 World Cup campaign.
