Yuvraj Singh, who is well remembered for his record 6 sixes against England in World T20, and then breathtaking performance in 2011 World Cup, has failed to make an impact on the field, continuously struggling to hit the ball to catch the attention of the national selectors.
His poor form with the willow has been continuous in the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) 2018, as the Punjab southpaw has scored merely 65 runs in his 8 outings for Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) so far.
IPL is a stage where every player can easily catch selectors attention to see themselves in the international contention, but it seems that the all-rounder is running out of time in his illustrious career.
So far in the IPL 2018, he looked out of touch since the start of the tournament, and unfortunately, due to which the left-hander once again overlooked for upcoming India’s England and Ireland series.
He had a great chance to hog the limelight and put his critics down during KXIP’s last match against the Mumbai Indians at Wankhede Stadium on Wednesday (16 May), but failed to hit the ball being dismissed in just 3 deliveries and Punjab lost a golden chance to make it to the top four in the IPL 2018.
Following KXIP’s painful 3-run defeat in Mumbai, a well-known cricket commentator and journalist Harsha Bhogle went on social media to express his views on the drastically struggling Punjab batsman.
On Thursday (17 May), Bhogle took to Twitter post a couple of philosophical tweets regarding Yuvraj, saying “things that we take for granted will one day become difficult, there is a lesson there for all of us.”

I felt for Yuvraj today. One of India's greatest white-ball players. Those two balls were in his arc. There is a lesson there for all of us. That which we think is easy today, which we take for granted, will one day become difficult.— Harsha Bhogle (@bhogleharsha) May 16, 2018
