Among the most talented cricketers India have produced, Yuvraj Singh was right up there with the best. The Indian batting maestro was one of the main pillars of India’s limited-overs set-up and played a key role in India’s win in the 2007 T20 World Cup and 2011 Cricket World Cup. The southpaw, however, failed to cement his place in the Test format.
The former Indian cricketer didn’t mince words while expressing his disappointment over the selectors for overlooking him in the longest format of the game.
Wisden India recently posted a tweet, asking the fans about any former Indian cricketer they wish had played more Test cricket.
“Which former Indian cricketer do you wish played more Tests?”
Yuvraj, whose photo was attached to the tweet was quick to respond. Taking a dig at Indian selectors, Yuvraj replied “Probably next life! When I’m not 12th man for 7 years.”
Probably next life! When I’m not 12th man for 7 years 🤪

Yuvraj announced his retirement from international cricket in June 2019. The southpaw last represented India in 2017, in a T20I against England.
The elegant batsman scored over 11,000 runs in international cricket and played 304 ODIs, 40 Tests and 58 T20Is for India, averaging 36.55, 33.92 and 28.05 respectively.
Yuvraj was last seen in action in the Road Safety Series where he turned back the clock and played some exquisite knocks, helping India claim the title.
