Yuvraj Singh had played under the captaincy of Sourav Ganguly in the Indian cricket team. The Indian all-rounder Yuvraj Singh has been a match-winner for the national team on quite a few occasions. His former skipper Ganguly was happy after Yuvraj was picked up by the Mumbai Indians to play in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2019. The 46-year-old Ganguly extended his wishes for Yuvraj on Twitter and said that he has been a great player for the country in the shorter format. He also said he is extremely happy to know that Yuvraj will play for the Mumbai franchise.

The veteran Indian cricketer Yuvraj was bought for Rs. 1 crore in the IPL 2019 auction. He went unsold in the first round of the auction but was later bought by Mumbai Indians for his base price.
