Left-handed Yuvraj was the costliest buy in this year’s IPL auction at Rs 16 crore. But he could not make a big impact in the league as his team Daredevils failed to make the play-offs. His last game in this season’s IPL was on May 17 against Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in Bengaluru.
Yuvraj has not played for India since April 2014:
Yuvraj has not played for India since April 2014. Since then, there has been no match practice for Yuvraj as he is not part of India A or the senior squad which is currently in Sri Lanka. He has featured in 40 Tests, 293 ODIs and 40 T20Is.
Still having hopes of making a comeback to the national team, Yuvraj seems to have begun preparations for the new season. He might be seen wielding his willow for Punjab in the Ranji Trophy, which begins in the first week of October.
