Former Indian cricketer Yuvraj Singh retired last year and was one of the very few cricketers to receive a No Objection Certificate from BCCI to participate in the foreign leagues.
The veteran batter went to play in Global T20 Canada league. After the Canadian league, the all-rounder flew to Abu Dhabi where he represented Maratha Arabians in the T10 league.
Now, the Punjab Cricket Association has requested the cricketer to come out of retirement and to play as well as a mentor for the domestic team.
Puneet Bali, the Punjab Cricket Association (PCA) secretary believes that someone like Yuvraj Singh can take the team forward by mentoring. The Punjab team has lost a number of key players to other states in recent years like Manan Vohra and Barinder Sran to Chandigarh, Jiwanjot Singh to Chattisgarh and Taruwar Kohli to Meghalaya.
“The request I made was for him to consider playing all formats. But if he comes back to and says, he’s available only for limited-overs cricket, for some reason, that will be fine too. I’m looking forward to hearing from him soon. But as such, he’s been working hard with the boys,” Puneet said as quoted by ESPNcricinfo.
However, it is unlikely for the all-rounder to make a comeback.
