Out of favour middle-order batsman, Yuvraj Singh is once again up for grabs in the Indian Premier League (IPL). Ahead of the IPL 2019 auction, Yuvraj was among the 11 players released by Kings XI Punjab (KXIP). The dashing left-handed batsman will once again go into the auction pool and hopefully finds a new team. Now that the teams are gearing up for the auction, the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) fans have requested the franchise to pick Yuvraj for the upcoming IPL season.

While most of the teams go for younger players, CSK does have a knack of going for experienced players. In fact, in the last season, CSK featured most players who were over 30. Interestingly, CSK has a purse money of Rs.8.40 Crore left and can buy a maximum of two Indian players. So, it seems difficult that Yuvi will don the Yellow jersey, but you never know. CSK and MS Dhoni have a habit of surprising many and they might do it again.
Ahead of the auctions, CSK related three players, Mark Wood, Kanishk Seth, and Kshitiz Sharma and decided to retain the core of the squad. If in case CSK picks Yuvraj it will be difficult for the batsman to find a place in the playing XI.

If Yuvraj is picked by CSK in the auction can he make a comeback to the Indian team as Rayudu did🤔
