#1 Had a feeling I might go to Mumbai Indians, insists Yuvraj Singh
Yuvraj Singh, who went unsold in the first round of the auction, found a buyer right at the very end as the Mumbai Indians purchased him for his base price.
Earlier that day, there were rumours that the southpaw might move to the Chennai Super Kings. However, these rumours were quashed once Mumbai bid on him.
Speaking to the Mumbai Mirror, Yuvraj confessed that he had a feeling about moving to the three-time champions.
"Somewhere within me, there was a feeling that I might go to Mumbai. Frankly, I am looking for an opportunity to play this year and I am happy that it has come," Yuvraj told Mumbai Mirror.
"The reason is obvious, when you are putting together an IPL team, you will be looking at the youngsters. I am at that stage of my career where it could be presumed that I may be in the last stages of my career. I had hoped that there would be a buyer for me in the last round."
