New Delhi: Eyeing an international comeback after falling out of favour due to poor form, Yuvraj Singh said his passion for the game has kept him motivated.
“Last one year was very difficult for me... I have seen ups and downs... The challenges were very hard, but it is my passion for the game that has kept motivating me to make a comeback,” Yuvraj said.
He said that he has taken criticisms in his stride and does not get affected by it. “I am okay with it... I have been playing for 13 years now and every player has highs and lows in his career. In India, people criticise you the most when you are down. It is part and parcel of the game and I am prepared for that,” he said.
Yuvraj now has to compete with the juniors to find a place in the team, but his confidence remains intact. “Everyone has to work hard to find a place in team, whether it is a senior or junior… As I said, I have been playing for 13 years and have full confidence in my abilities,” he said. (PTI)
