New Delhi, July 26
Former India all-rounder Yuvraj Singh feels he was dealt with unprofessionally in the direction of the tip of his profession. Yuvraj retired in June final yr. “I just felt that the way they managed me towards the end of my career was very unprofessional,” Yuvraj instructed Sportskeeda. “But looking back at a couple of great players like Harbhajan (Singh), (Virender) Sehwag, Zaheer Khan, also very badly managed. So it is part of Indian cricket, I had seen it in the past and I was not really surprised,” he added.
“But in the future, anybody who has played for India for a long time, you should definitely honour him. Give him that respect, somebody like Gautam Gambhir, who has won two World Cups for us. Sehwag, who has been the biggest match-winner after Sunil Gavaskar in Tests. VVS (Laxman), Zaheer (Khan), also,” he added.
Yuvraj mentioned he doesn’t assume he’s “a legend”. “I’ve played the game with integrity but I didn’t play much Test cricket. Legendary players are those who have good Test records,” Yuvraj mentioned.
Yuvraj featured in 304 ODIs, 58 T20Is and 40 Tests, scoring 8701, 1177 and 1900 runs within the three codecs, respectively. Also, he scalped 111 wickets in 50-over format, 28 in T20Is and 9 in Tests. — PTI
