I have two or three IPL left in me: Yuvraj Singh

Bengaluru, February 15: Yuvraj Singh said he still has his eyes set on playing for India and has two or three IPLs left in him.

"I am still playing because I am enjoying playing cricket, not just because I have to play for India or I have to play the IPL. The motivation is definitely to play for India. I feel two or three IPLs are left in me," Yuvraj told Sportstar.

So has he kept a time frame to retire?

"I don't want to leave the game with any regret, thinking I should have played for some more years. I want to go when I feel it is the right time to go, when I feel I have done my best and I could not have done any more than this. The journey has been nice.

"I have been a fighter, taking on tough situations. I like being a pillar of strength to people, for those suffering from cancer or going through other issues in life. I want to be known as someone who never gave up. Whether I play for India or not, I will give my 100 per cent on the field," said the Punjab left-hander.

Even though Yuvraj has not set a deadline to walk into the sunset, he was sure about his post retirement plans. Of course, it did not involve commentary.

"Commentating is not my forte. Cancer (YouWeCan Foundation) is going to be my area of work in the future. I love supporting young kids, I like interacting with the younger generation.
Coaching is in my mind. I would identify underprivileged kids and focus on their sport and education. Education is as important as sport. You need to focus on both. Sport should not come at the cost of education," he added.
