Former Indian all-rounder Yuvraj Singh has played for six franchises in the Indian Premier League (IPL) and looks like another team is eyeing to get him in the 2020 edition of the cash-rich tournament. Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) are the side who have hinted to bid for the two-time world-cup winner in the upcoming auctions. Yuvraj said that KKR’s decision of not retaining Chris Lynn was a ‘bad call’ and he also might drop a message about that to the team’s owner Shah Rukh Khan. However, the CEO of the franchise Venky Mysore came up with a cheeky reply to the talismanic all-rounder and said that Lynn was dropped so that KKR can bid for Yuvraj Singh. IPL 2020: Releasing Chris Lynn Bad Call by KKR, Says Yuvraj Singh.
"@YUVSTRONG12 we released @lynny50 so that we could bid for you! 😜 Love and respect for both of you champions!" wrote Mysore on Twitter. The southpaw is currently playing for Maratha Arabians in the ongoing Abu Dhabi T10 League where Lynn is his teammate. The right-handed batsman has been in terrific form in the tournament and has scored 91 runs in one match which is the highest ever T10 score. The Australian also did a decent job in his stint with KKR and hence his dropping from the side surprised one and all. However, KKR have hinted their strategy behind not retaining the explosive opener and let’s see how many bids Yuvraj will get from KKR this season.

Yuvraj, who announced his retirement from international cricket in August this year, played for Mumbai Indian in the last edition of the showpiece tournament. However, he warmed the benches in most matches and subsequently was not retained for the upcoming edition. Nevertheless, it seems like fans will witness Yuvraj’s brutal hitting at least for one more season.
