Sports Desk – Former Indian all-rounder Yuvraj Singh may start his new innings. According to media reports, he could be seen playing in the Australian domestic tournament Big Bash League (BBL) this year. There are reports that Yuvraj may be a part of Big Bash League 2020-21.
Actually, Sixer King Yuvraj has expressed his desire to play in BBL. Even Cricket Australia (CA) is looking for a team for Yuvraj. As of now, no Indian player has been able to play in the BBL so far, as the BCCI does not allow its active players to play in foreign T20 leagues. However, Yuvraj Singh’s case is different, as he has retired from all types of cricket of BCCI.
He went on to play Global T20 Canada and Abu Dhabi T10 league after obtaining NOC from BCCI. Yuvraj was highly expected to enter the Caribbean Premier League’s draft as well but the COVID-19 situation is understood to be one of the reasons behind him deciding against it.
“We’re working with CA to try to find him a home,” Jason Warne, Yuvraj’s manager, told The Age. The report adds that the news of Yuvraj interested in BBL has received a modest response.
Back in 2013/14, Sachin Tendulkar could have become the first Indian player to participate in BBL after being approached by Sydney Thunder. However, the talks didn’t materialise. He had retired from international cricket in November 2013.
This league 10th season is to be played between 3 December to 6 February.
