Yuvraj aims to reviveTest career
Friday 24 June 2011

Flamboyant Indian batsman Yuvraj Singh has set his sights on ‘restructuring’ his Test career after achieving one of his aims of lifting the World Cup for India.

The Punjab player expressed regret at not making the most of his talent in the longest format of the game. But hoped to set that record straight sooner rather than later.  

 "I am really working hard and I am sure given a chance I would like to put that record straight. I want to restructure my Test career and that is now my main aim. Yuvraj told PTI-Bhasha in an interview

"Looking back at the last 10 years of my career, I won't deny the fact that I feel little sad about my Test numbers. There could various reasons for that and I am not going into that. But what lies ahead is interesting and challenging," said the southpaw.

Having experienced his fair share of ups and downs, Yuvraj considers himself to be a stronger player courtesy the hard lessons that he has learned throughout his career.

"Yeah it's been a very long time and I won't deny the fact that I have changed for good. Now I am much more mature on and off the field,"

"I have gone through lots of ups and down and have emerged stronger and wiser with experience. I am much more calm and controlled in every aspect of my life," he concluded.
