Ahead of the 2019 Indian Premier League, Mumbai Indians unveiled World Cup star Yuvraj Singh's number with their new jersey. The veteran all-rounder will be donning his favourite number 12 jersey once again in blue colour. Yuvraj was roped in by the three-time champions at his base price of Rs 1 crore at the IPL player auction last year.

Heading into the new season, the southpaw will try to leave behind a disastrous 2018 IPL campaign with Kings XI Punjab for whom he featured in just eight games, scoring 65 runs at a woeful average of 10.83 and bowling a mere two overs. Under Ravichandran Ashwin's captaincy, KXIP got off to a stellar start but faltered towards the end of their campaign to finish seventh with six wins in 14 games.

The Mumbai outfit also took to Twitter to unveil the jersey of their new no. 12.

Out of favour from the national team for a while now, Yuvraj played his last ODI game in June 2017. There is little or no chances of the 37-year-old making a comeback in the Indian team ahead of the 2019 World Cup. But IPL 2019 will be a crucial one for him considering his poor run of form in domestic cricket.
