The 37 year old left hander batsman, Yuvraj Singh went unsold in the first round of Indian Premier League 2019 auction. He was bought for hi base price of Rs 1 crore by Mumbai Indians. Soon after being bought by the IPL franchise led by Rohit Sharma Yuvraj took to twitter to thank Mumbai Indians and had a special message for the captain, “I am glad to be part of the @mipaltan family, looking forward for the season to begin. See u soon @ImRo45," tweeted Yuvraj.
"To be honest, we had budgeted a lot more for Yuvraj and Malinga. At Rs one crore, a player like Yuvraj is probably a (biggest) steal of 12 (sic) years. He has won every trophy there is to be won," said the franchise owner, Akash Ambani after the auction.
In 2015, Yuvraj set a new record by emerging as the costliest-ever buy in the Indian Premier League by going for a whopping Rs 16 crore to Delhi Daredevils.
