It can be quite difficult for a cricketer to maintain his personal and professional life at the same time, and maybe there have been some problems they have to face, but Kings XI Punjab’s Yuvraj Singh doesn’t feel the same, saying he feels lucky to have all the responsibilities.
However, the veteran all-rounder admitted that juggling between roles can be difficult at times, but it takes a dedicated team to ensure he is on track with all responsibilities.
Punjab lad, who married to British−Mauritian model and Actress Hazel Keech in 2016, also revealed she has "no complaints" concerning the regular traveling and etc.
Speaking to IANS, the 36-year-old left-hander said, “It takes a dedicated team to ensure I am on track with all my responsibilities. Juggling between different roles can be difficult at times, but I am very aware of how lucky I am to have all of this.”
There are many foreign cricketers who have been featuring in the IPL every year and benefited from the experience, as well as, becoming more efficient in Indian conditions, which means India is losing some of the home advantages at the international level, and Yuvraj also agree with it.
The all-rounder further added, “IPL was conceived as a format that allowed the best of cricketing talent to compete with each other and entertain cricket fans. So over the last 11 seasons definitely there are more non-Indian players who now understand subcontinental pitches or our bowling and can adapt better when we are playing each other's national sides. But the reverse is also true.”
But at the same time, young Indian players have also got an opportunity to observe and learn from "phenomenally talented players" playing in the IPL, noted Yuvraj.
He went on to explain, “We have a different comfort level and, all in all, a much better equation as players of the game. Obviously, when we don the national colors, we are all playing for our country and that is the passion that drives us to give it our best.”
He also revealed that the candlelight dinner is a perfect date for him, but he most loved the home-cooked food.
Yuvraj signed off by saying, “If I am at home in Chandigarh then I would love to eat home-cooked food, and my mother also makes sure she cooks my favorite dishes. For special occasions and events, we go out.”
