Yuvraj Singh happy to play for Maratha Arabians, urges fans to cheer for his team in Abu Dhabi T10 league
Since announcing his retirement from international cricket, Yuvraj Singh has been looking to play in a plethora of cricket tournaments around the world in a bid to enjoy the gentlemen’s game post hanging his boots. The swashbuckling southpaw was last seen playing in Global T20 Canada for Toronto Nationals and his presence attracted massive crowds in stadiums. Yuvraj’s next step in the world of franchise cricket is going to be the Abu Dhabi T10 League where he has been roped in as an icon player by Maratha Arabians.
Yuvraj on Saturday took to social media platform Twitter announce that he will be playing for Maratha Arabians in Abu Dhabi T10 League while asking his fans to cheer his team during the course of the tournament.
“Happy to announce that I will be playing for team @MarathaArabians in Abu Dhabi @T10League Be there to cheer for my team and catch me in action at Abu Dhabi from 14 - 24 Nov! Looking forward to it. #AalaReAala #marathaarabians,” Yuvraj tweeted.

The T10 league will be played under the support of the Emirates Cricket Board with the official approval of the International Cricket Council (ICC). The tournament will have some of the biggest cricketing stars on board with the likes of Eoin Morgan, Mohammad Amir, Harry Gurney, Chris Lynn, Lasith Malinga, Dwayne Bravo, Thisara Perera, Colin de Grandehomme, Shane Watson, Kieron Pollard, Shahid Afridi, Tom Banton, Andre Russell among others to ply their trade.
Yuvraj will join familiar faces in Sri Lankan fast bowler Lasith Malinga and West Indies all-rounder Dwayne Bravo in the side that will be coached by the former Zimbabwe captain Andy Flower.
The previous seasons of the T10 league had been under the clouds due to problems with corruption and the forthcoming edition of the tournament has been shifted from Sharjah to Abu Dhabi with the organisers claiming that the ICC will be handling corruption issues.
