Punjab Cricket Association names a stand after Yuvraj Singh

Yuvraj Singh, the veteran India allrounder, has sent a heartfelt statement of thanks to the Punjab Cricket Association (PCA) after the governing body dedicated a stand after him at the IS Bindra Stadium in Mohali. Yuvraj was one of the honorees at the site for the first T20I between India and Australia on Tuesday, September 20.

In addition to Yuvraj, legendary spinner Harbhajan Singh was recognized by the PCA and had a stand named after him. Even the latter was present at the event’s location. The naming of the stands commemorating both World Cup-winning players took place before the first T20I.

During the event, two stands were legally renamed, and the PCA honored Harbhajan and Yuvraj Singh in the presence of Punjab Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann. Yuvraj donned the India jacket, while Harbhajan wore the sky blue blazer he generally wears for his TV appearances. Meanwhile, Yuvraj was spotted talking with many Indian players, including captain Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, and Hardik Pandya.

During their careers, Yuvraj and Harbhajan were key players in many of India’s historic victories, including the famous Natwest tri-series win on English soil in 2002, the T20 World Cup in 2007, the Commonwealth Bank series victory in Australia during the 2007/08 season, and the 2011 World Cup, among others.

Despite the fact that both players are retired, they participate in competitions for retired players. Yuvraj is a member of the India Legends team in the Road Safety World Series 2022.

The experienced offie, on the other hand, captained the India Maharajas in an exhibition match against the World Giants last week and is presently the captain of the Manipal Tigers in the Legends League Cricket.
