Mumbai Indians Yuvraj Singh slams BCCI, ‘Board handled end of my career in a very unprofessional manner’

Former India all rounder Yuvraj Singh will still be seen in action in the Indian Premier League (IPL 2020) in UAE, but his glorious India career finished unceremoniously. And according to Yuvi who will be playing for Mumbai Indians this IPL, BCCI did not give him respected what he deserved at the end of his career.

It was in June last year that Yuvraj officially announced his retirement from all formats of the game. He had last played for the country back in 2017. In a chat with Sportskeeda he revealed that although he did not want a farewell by the board, but deserved a little more respect

“First of all, I don’t think I’m 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. For giving somebody a farewell, that’s not for me to decide, that’s for BCCI to decide.”

He went on to say that the way BCCI manages the players at the end of their careers is very unprofessional.

“I just felt that the way they managed me towards the end of my career was very unprofessional. But looking back at a couple of great players like Harbhajan, Sehwag, Zaheer Khan, also very badly mismanaged. So it is part of Indian cricket, I had seen it in the past and I was not really surprised,” Yuvraj added.

“But in the future, anybody who has played for India for a long time and has been through tough situations, 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, Zaheer, also,” said the southpaw.

Yuvraj in his career, played 304 ODIs, 58 T20Is, and 40 Tests. He would go down as one of the most successful white-ball players for India in history. And in his IPL career Yuvraj has already played for 6 different teams and has earned 84.60 Cr over 12 years career.

He is the 7th Highest earner in IPL Moneyball Salary LIST.
