Yuvraj Singh comments on 2019 world Cup

New Delhi, January 07: The Unsung hero of 2011 worldcup Yuvraj Singh said on Sunday that he will still try and play the World Cup in May-June despite struggling to re-capture his form in recent times.

"Cricket has given me everything. When I leave the game, I want to be at my best. I do not want to go with any regret," the 2011 World Cup winning hero, who was here for Punjab s Ranji Trophy Elite Group B match against Bengal, said at the Jadavpur University Saltlake Campus ground.

Yuvraj, who was picked by Mumbai Indians for his base price of Rs 1 crore at the IPL auctions, has set his sights on the T20 extravaganza to make his bid for a comeback.

"I m trying my best. This is our final league Ranji Trophy match and let s see if we can qualify... After this, we have the national T20 tournament and then we have the IPL. I will give my best shot and hope for the best," Yuvraj said.

Yuvraj lauded the Indian team s fine show in Australia. "Obviously their experience in batting is not that much what it used to be. But it s fantastic effort from the guys. Especially, (Cheteshwar) Pujara, (Virat) Kohli, (Jasprit) Bumrah. They really excelled in Tests. It s great to see Rishab (Pant) going down the order and scoring big runs. It s great sign for Indian cricket for the future." "Every time we toured Australia, it s been a very tough tour. We had the opportunity to win the series, it was a draw... Then next time Australia won 2-1," he said recalling the 2003-04 and 2007-08 tours.

Yuvraj also lavished praise on Rishabh Pant who scored a Test hundred each in England and Australia within months from his debut. "He came last year, he got picked for India. Everybody said he plays too many shots, he s rash, he doesn t have the mind. But after one year of being in and out, having a good IPL, the guy scored two hundreds overseas," Yuvraj said.
