5 players who should retire from IPL
These players have lost their magic and should retire from IPL after this season.
The Indian Premier League has seen a lot of legends play in it. While a lot of them have retired, a few are still trying to make an impact.
In an attempt to show that they can still do it on the big stage, they are tarnishing their own legacy. These players need to step aside and give the young talent a chance to shine in the IPL.
Here are 5 players who should retire from IPL:
#5 Yuvraj Singh
The golden boy for a generation, Yuvraj Singh is just not able to perform the way he wants to these days. The southpaw was one of the deadliest strikers of the ball during his day, and bowlers had a nightmare when he was at the crease. He's averaging 12 and has a strike rate of 91 – something we did not even expect from him in Test cricket.
Even in the field, he and Mohamed Kaif were the ones who inspired the current crop of Indian players to dive around and pull off stunning catches. But those days are gone and Yuvraj is unable to cling on to catches that come straight at him.
He's back with his 'home franchise' this season and should consider quitting the IPL on a high. He might be released at the end of the season and going into the auction next year would not be a good option. For a player who has fetched a large amount of money during an auction, it'll be an all-time low to go unsold.
