Yuvraj Singh who was biggest draw in 2008 opening IPL season guided Kings XI Punjab to the semi-finals but things never really worked out for him there.

He had to eventually move out as he went back to the auction pool and played for teams like Pune Warriors India, Delhi Daredevils (now Delhi Capitals) and Royal Challengers Bangalore, but never really tasted success.

He finally became an IPL champion in 2016 with Sunrisers Hyderabad, before winning the title again in his final season with Mumbai Indians.

Speaking about his stint at Kings XI Punjab on the Youtube channel Sportscreen, Yuvraj said that the franchise didn’t do what he had asked them to.

“I wanted to run away from Kings XI Punjab … the management didn’t like me there … they did nothing I asked them to do … and when I left they bought all the players I had been asking them to. I love Punjab but I did not like the running of the franchise,” the former India star said.
