If reports are to be believed one of the star Team India player is considering retirement from International cricket in order to make himself available for foreign T20 leagues.

  The former Indian top cricketer Yuvraj Singh as per reports in National Media is seriously contemplating retirement from International cricket in order to get permission to play in ICC approved foreign Twenty20 leagues.

The reports further said that Yuvraj Singh knows he is done with international cricket and his only hope now is playing in T20 leagues.

“Yuvraj is thinking of calling it quits from international and first class cricket. He would like to speak to the BCCI and get more clarity on playing his trade in tournaments like GT20 (Canada), Euro T20 Slam in Ireland and Holland as he has offers,” PTI quoted BCCI source.

The development comes in the wake of Irfan Pathan becoming first ever Indian cricketer to feature in players draft of Caribbean Premier League but Pathan junior is an active first class player, who didn’t seek permission from the BCCI.

“Irfan was told to withdraw his name from the draft. As far as Yuvraj is concerned, we need to check the rules. Even if he retires from first class cricket, he will still be an active T20 player registered under BCCI. The rule needs to be checked,” report further said.
