Yuvraj Singh who retired from International cricket in 2019 has failed to make a comeback to the senior men’s Punjab team as the BCCI has not yet processed the player’s request for permission to make a comeback.
Yuvraj, who quit cricket in 2019 and played for the T20 league and T10 league, was among 32 probables announced by the Punjab Cricket Association earlier this month. It was PCA secretary Puneet Bali who had asked Yuvraj to come out of retirement and be part of the team with an objective to mentor the youngsters. The 39-year-old did play practice matches in Mohali last week.
Meanwhile, Mandeep Singh has been named the captain of the Punjab team. Fast bowler Barinder Singh Sran has returned to the team from UT Cricket Association (Chandigarh). Munish Bali is the coach while former India pacer Manpreet Gony is the bowling coach.
