The sight of Yuvraj Singh walking out to bat use to have fans on sitting on the edge of these seats, waiting for the barrage to begin. But come IPL 2018 and how the occasions have changed. The stylish left-hander is a huge shadow of the player that’s tormented and given nightmares to first class bowlers. Kings XI Punjab acquired the services of Yuvraj at his base price of Rs 2 crore after no other franchise showed any interest in the World Cup winner.
Home comforts, however, have not gotten the best of Yuvraj and the southpaw is enduring one of his worst IPL seasons. In the match between Mumbai Indians vs Kings XI Punjab, Yuvraj registered a record that went on to exhibit the amount of he’s fighting the bat.
Yuvraj was dismissed for 14 off 14 balls that took his strike-rate in IPL 2018 to 91.42 — the worst for almost any player that’s faced 50 or even more balls this season.
This year Yuvraj has played seven matches, scoring a complete of 64 runs at typically 12.80.
