NEW DELHI: ex-ATV from India Yuvraj singh he feels he was handled unprofessionally towards the end of his career.
Yuvraj, who is considered to be one of the best players of all time to play, opened the curtains on his trophy-laden career in June last year.
Citing examples from some previous greats, who had similar illustrious careers on the international stage but did not make it to sunset at the top, Yuvraj said that these cricketers, including himself, were not given enough respect at the end of their respective trips.
“I felt that the way I was being handled towards the end of my career was very unprofessional. But looking back at a couple of great players like Harbhajan (Singh), (Virender) Sehwag, Zaheer Khan, also very poorly managed. So it’s part of Indian cricket, I’ve seen it in the past and it didn’t surprise me much, “Yuvraj said on Sportskeeda’s Free Hit show.
“But in the future, anyone who has played for India for a long time and gone through difficult situations should definitely honor him.”
“Give him that respect, someone like Gautam gambhir, who won two World Cups for us. Sehwag, who has been the biggest winner of the match after Sunil gavaskar in tests. VVS (Laxman), Zaheer (Khan), too, “he added.
Yuvraj was an integral member of the team in India’s two biggest victories at the ICC events in this century: World T20 2007 and World Cup 2011. Despite his impressive feats, Yuvraj does not feel that he is a legend of the game.
“I don’t think it’s a legend. I played the game with integrity but I didn’t play much Cricket test. Legendary players are those who have good test records, “Yuvraj said.
Yuvraj appeared in 304 ODI, 58 T20I and 40 tests for the national team. He earned 8701, 1177, and 1900 races in all three formats, respectively. In addition, he scalped 111 wickets in 50 format, 28 in T20Is and 9 in Tests.
