Yuvraj Singh has been out of action from international cricket for quite some time now. The left-hander who played for Kings XI Punjab in the 2018 edition of IPL has a new franchise this year. Yuvraj will don the Mumbai Indians jersey for IPL 2019 as he looks to redeem himself. Yuvraj Singh is still the only man to hit 6 sixes in an over in the T20 format of the game. The Mumbai Indians captain Rohit Sharma will be backing Yuvraj to the hilt as he knows Yuvraj can prove to be a match-winner once again if he gets going.

His highest score in the tournament was 20 and had scored just 65 runs in the 10 matches that he played. Yuvraj Singh will be looking to make the most of his opportunity with the Mumbai Indians who have been one of the most dominating side in the IPL.
