Yuvraj Singh registered his 13th IPL half-century on his debut for the Mumbai team in the Indian T20 League on Sunday.

Yuvi's cricketing future has been a topic of discussion for some years now but the player said that he would be the first one to hang up his boots when his time is up.

Yuvraj, who has a poor record in IPL, started on a bright note with a half-century at the Wankhede Stadium.

"When the time comes, I will be the first one to hang my boots," Yuvraj told the media persons after Mumbai's 37-run defeat against Delhi Capitals in their opening game.

India's 2007 World T20 and 2011 World Cup hero did admit that at times he felt indecisive about carrying on. "

The last two years, have been up and down (for me). And I could not decide on what to do," said the 37-year-old.

Yuvraj said that he did introspect and found that he is still enjoying the game just as he did as an U-16 cricketer, not thinking about national team selection.

"The main thing for me was why I played the game when I started off. I played the game because I enjoyed playing cricket. When I enjoyed playing cricket, I was not playing for India. I was playing for U-14s and U-16s. So till the time, I enjoy playing cricket, I am going to play."

"I have been speaking to Sachin (Tendulkar) as well and he has gone through that time when he was 37-38-39 (and how he felt). Talking to him makes things easier for me. And I am just playing because I enjoy playing cricket pretty much," added Yuvi.
