Amid the lockdown due to COVID-19 outbreak, the players and fans are keeping themselves busy by interacting on social media and surfing their interests. Former players and the current stalwarts of game are spending a good amount of time by conducting question answer sessions on twitter and other social media platforms.

Yuvraj Singh, the two-time World Cup hero, on Monday, conducted a live interaction session with his former Indian Team-mate Mohammad Kaif. In the session, the duo discussed on plethora of things including the future plans.

During the session, Mohammad Kaif questioned Yuvraj about his preference between Coaching and Commentary as his future endeavour. In reply, Yuvraj came up with a stunning answer. The left-hander first picked coaching to be his preference before he went onto clarify the reason.

“I feel I enjoy coaching more than commentary. I don’t think commentary will be my full-time job,” said the 38-year-old.

Yuvraj thinks that commentary box is not a place for him as a number of people in the same box won’t be able to tolerate him. However, the left-hander also desired to do commentary in the ICC events occasionally.

“You can get along with people. I can’t tolerate some people in the commentary box (laughs). It really depends if a time comes when I want to commentate, I will. I want to do ICC events – T20 World Cup, ICC ODI World Cup. I don’t think I can do commentary all the time. I don’t have the patience to sit and talk about cricket all the time again. I won’t be able to do it,” said the former left-handed batsman.

In the 17-year career, Yuvraj played with plethora of Indian legends and arguably the best generation of Indian Cricket that witnessed the likes of Sachin Tendulkar, Rahul Dravid, Sourav Ganguly, Anil Kumble, VVS Laxman, Virender Sehwag among many others. These legends carried the Indian Cricket baton for almost two decades, before they pass it to the likes of MS Dhoni, Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma and Jasprit Bumrah.
