The 12th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) is just a week away and all the teams are preparing in full swing. Mumbai Indians is no exception. One player in particular is looking to prove his critics wrong. And the start to justifying MI’s faith in his abilities has begun on a positive note.
India's 2011 World Cup star Yuvraj Singh had failed to find a team in the first round of auctions last year but Mumbai Indians picked him in the second round for a Rs 2 crore. And if his approach during a training session is anything to go by, one can only say - Good Luck opponents.
The first ball he faced in the nets came, in his own words, from the middle of the bat and went for a six. The confidence is there to be seen.
A veteran 304 ODIs and 40 Tests, Yuvraj will be eager to continue middling them during the IPL and help the Mumbai Indians win their fourth title.
Mumbai Indians will begin their campaign on March 24 against the rebranded Delhi Capitals at the Wankhede Stadium.
