After getting pass marks in the fitness test, Yuvraj singh said,”I would like to tell that I am failing. I still fail. I failed the last three fitness tests but yesterday I passed my fitness test. After 17 years I am still failing.”
“I am not afraid of failure. I have gone through ups and downs. I have seen defeat and that’s what’s the pillar of success. “To be a successful man, to be a successful person in your life, you need failure and you’ve got to be defeated. That will make you a stronger person and it will take you to the next level,” he explained.
“I am still playing. I don’t know what format I am going to play. But I am pushing everyday as hard as I used to, may be harder than before because I am getting older. And I see myself playing cricket till 2019 and obviously take a call after that,” he said.
“So I still believe in myself. As I said I don’t know how many people believe in me but I do believe in myself,” Yuvraj added. The left-hander has played 40 Tests, 304 ODIs and 58 T20 Internationals in his 17-year-career scoring 1900, 8701 and 1177 runs across the respective formats.
