Yuvraj Singh, who retired from the International cricket last year after being snubbed from the World Cup last year, was the mainstay for Team India. He had a huge contribution in India’s victory in the and ICC T20 World Cup 2007. The middle-order batsman was also adjudged with the Man of the tournament in India’s World Cup triumph.

Every cricket fan clearly remembers his six-consecutive hitting knock against in the T20 World Cup in 2007. That knock had given Yuvraj the name of sixer king. Apart from his prowess with the bat, Yuvraj was also a handy left-arm spinner and his bowling played almost as big a role as his batting in the 2011 World Cup.

He scored 8,701 runs and took 111 wickets in his ODI career in addition to 1,900 runs in Tests and 1,177 runs in T20Is.

Karun Nair picks his two favourite IPL teams barring Kings XI Punjab

Karnataka’s batting stalwart Karun Nair rose through the ranks after his impressive performances in the Ranji circuit.

From there on, Nair accumulated a string of brilliant performances in the IPL, representing the (RR) and Delhi Daredevils (DD).

The Indian selectors did not delay his Test debut, by giving him an opportunity during the 2016 England series.

Nair paid rich dividends for the faith entrusted on him and slammed a triple ton in his debut series. However, Nair could not fulfil his potential as he garnered a string of disappointing performances in the subsequent 2017 Australia series.

His lean patch continued even after being bagged by his current franchise Kings XI Punjab in the 2018 edition of IPL.

Now, the Karnataka batsman, during a recent interaction, has revealed his two favourite teams in the IPL, barring KXIP. There, he named Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) and his former team Delhi Capitals.

Later, Nair was asked whether the tag of being the second triple centurion for the country is a burden on his shoulder.

“I don’t think it is too much of a tag. It is definitely not a burden. It is, in fact, something which I can look upon and always go back and feel proud of. It is something that is never going to go away from me, so you need to look only at the positives,” Nair told Times Now.

In the end, Nair was asked about his comeback into the Indian team, which is long overdue.

“Honestly, the comeback has not happened and I have not got many chances from thereon. But for that to happen, whenever I have come back to domestic cricket, I have not been consistent enough to put up my hand and say that ‘I need to be playing in the XI’. It is important for me to consistently score runs at domestic cricket. Selection is not in one’s control, so I have to pounce on every opportunity and make them count big time,” Nair concluded.
