The Indian All-rounder express his opinion about the water crisis in the drought-hit Maharashtra and Indian Premier League both are different issues and nothing to relate which each other and the game must go on.He just spoke about his opinion at Puma’s Bold trick Collection,Mumbai.
“I don’t think IPL has got to do anything with what the situations are in India. We play a sport and try to excel in that. I don’t think there is any reason that IPL should not go on,” the 2007 World Twenty20 Champion and Indian cricket team all-rounder said at the launch of sportswear company Puma’s bold Tricks collection,Mumbai.
The Bombay High Courte recently directed to shift all IPL matches after 30 April on acting of a Public Interest Litigation(PIL) filed by a Mumbai-bases activist for drought-hit Maharashtra. The State was originally scheduled to host 20 Indian Premier League matches in Mumbai, Nagpur, and Pune.
“Regarding the permission, it is not my job to say anything, as my job as a cricketer is to play cricket. Whatever venue I go to play, whatever venue we are told to go to play, we will just go out and play,” Yuvraj Singh added.
Yuvraj is currently out of action after he sustained an ankle injury while playing against Australia during the World T20. The injury also restricted him from playing in the IPL 9 and has already missed first three games for Sunrisers Hyderabad. However, the southpaw is recovering quickly and is hopeful of returning to IPL action against Gujarat Lions on May 6.
“I am looking to play the game on May 6. Hopefully, I should be ready by then. I am not fully certain that I will play on 6th May, but my target is to play on the sixth. I had a go-ahead from my doctor yesterday, so hopefully, will play,” Yuvraj said.
