Former India player Yuvraj Singh is referred to as one of the greatest white ball players India has ever produced. His contribution was immense during the 2007 T20 World Cup and also in the 2011 World Cup. After smashing record-breaking six sixes in the 2007 World Cup, he went on to clinch the Man of the Tournament award in the 2011 World Cup. Despite going down with cancer, Yuvraj made a terrific comeback and played many outstanding innings for the Men in Blue.
In a recent interview, the former left-hander said that he does not want his son to become a cricketer.
“I don’t want my son to become a cricketer. The pressure the kids have these days, especially the children of cricketers, I feel it’s a lot. It’s not easy on them as our public and media keep on comparing them (with their parents),” said Yuvraj on TRS Clips.
“I enjoy playing golf so I bought a plastic golf set for my son. I taught him a few shots as he is very young right now and in his learning phase. So, he would hit a few balls and throw them from both his hands,” said Yuvraj
“One day, he was at my sister-in-law’s house. Over there, he did not pick up the golf stick but took a cricket bat and started running here and there. So, there are certain things which are natural and you can’t really help them. If he wants to be a cricketer, I will definitely support him but I will also be Terminator 4 (laughs),” he added.
In his 17-year-long illustrious career, Yuvraj plied his trade in 40 Tests, 304 ODIs, and 58 T20Is. He has collected 1900 runs in Tests, 8701 runs in ODIs, and 1177 runs in T20Is. Singh played his last match for India back in 2017 and then declared retirement in 2019.
