Meanwhile, in his latest interview, Yuvraj Singh got candid about how being a sportperson is not an easy thing. Speaking about the same he said:
“I feel the presence of seniors and mentors on the team is a big plus. They have kept us grounded, showed us how to handle different situations, and always reminded us of the great responsibility of representing a cricket-playing nation. Off-field it was my fellow players and on-field it was always the fan’s cheer that was a source of tremendous motivation.”
Yuvi also shared his fond memories of playing for Team India in the 2007 World Cup. He said:
“That is an unforgettable memory for all of us (6 sixes). I recently even shared a video on Instagram to mark the day. It’s a very special milestone for me and every time someone speaks about it, it is sure to bring back some wonderful memories of accomplishing great things for our country and for the fans who give us so much love. The cheer of the crowd, the victory, and the feeling of pride are all so fresh in my mind.”
