Indian Premier League Till I enjoy playing cricket, I will play: Yuvraj Singh

first_imgThe left-hander smashed a fifty off 33 balls and it included five fours and three sixes. The Punjab batsman got going with two fours and a six off left-arm spinner Axar Patel and drilled West Indies pacer Keemo Paul down the ground for a superb boundary. With every run being scored, the Wankhede echoed with the chants of ‘Yuvi,Yuvi,Yuvi’. After clobbering Axar for two more sixes, Yuvraj notched up his fifty by edging Trent Boult to the third man region. Yuvraj, though, admitted that he was not sure whether he should carry on playing cricket in the last couple of months. He said speaking to Sachin Tendulkar, who retired at the age of 40 from all forms of cricket, helped him take a clear decision. “The last two years, have been up and down and I could not decide on what to do. I have been speaking to Sachin [Tendulkar] as well and he has gone through that time when he was 37-38-39 [and how he felt]. Talking to him makes things easier for me,” Yuvraj said. highlights New Delhi: Mumbai Indians were blown away by a spectacular onslaught from Rishabh Pant as he smashed 78 off 27 balls to help Delhi Capitals score 99 runs in the last six overs to reach 213/6 at the Wankhede stadium on Sunday. In response, Mumbai Indians floundered and none of the batsmen got going against the discipline of Ishant Sharma, Kagiso Rabada and Trent Boult. However, there was only one player who stood out amidst the ruins and that was Yuvraj Singh. The left-hander was in fine touch as he smashed a fifty off 33 balls but it could not help Mumbai Indians avert a 37-run loss against Delhi Capitals to start their campaign on a wrong note. However, the strokes by Yuvraj turned the clock back when he was India’s ultimate match-winner. There have been speculations about Yuvraj Singh’s playing career, which some stating he might retire from all forms of cricket should he not be picked in the Indian squad for the 2019 ICC Cricket World Cup. However, following his knock, Yuvraj brushed aside those speculations. “When the time comes, I will be the first one to hang my boots. The main thing for me was why I played the game when I started off. I played the game because I enjoyed playing cricket. When I enjoyed playing cricket, I was not playing for India. I was playing for U-14s and U-16s. So till the time, I enjoy playing cricket, I am going to play,” Yuvraj said.  For all the Latest Sports News News, Indian Premier League News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps.

first_imgAnglers at Doochary on SundayA DONEGAL TD has called for Inland Fisheries Ireland (IFI) to take a step back following a heated altercation which took place at Gweebarra River last weekend between IFI officials and local anglers.Donegal Daily revealed how one angler ended up in hospital after the incident.“This incident is reflective of the bad feeling over a number of years between the Donegal Game Angling Federation (DGAF), and the IFI regarding the dispute over €50 per day IFI permits which are the subject of an ongoing dispute in the courts,” said Deputy Thomas Pringle. “After a morning spent fishing on the Mayo Pool last Sunday, members of the Fintown Angling Club and the Rosses Angling Club, under the umbrella of the DGAF, were confronted by IFI staff and asked to produce the IFI permits. The situation then escalated requiring involvement by the Gardaí.“I would call on the IFI to respectfully back away while the issue of the permits is before the courts.“This situation escalated when those fishing were asked to produce the permits which are the subject of an ongoing dispute in the courts, but as this is an issue before the courts it is the courts that should make the decision and no one else. The IFI must await the outcome of the court rulings.“I am calling for an end to the approach taken by the IFI on this matter,” stated Pringle.  GWEEBARRA ANGLERS ROW: TD CALLS FOR BAILIFFS TO ‘BACK OFF’ was last modified: June 10th, 2014 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:GweebarraIFIThomas Pringlelast_img read more
