first_imgYuvraj Singh may have quit international cricket but the former India all-rounder is turning heads with his performances in the second season of the ongoing Global T20 Canada in Brampton.On Saturday, Yuvraj Singh sent the crowd at CAA Centre in Ontario in a tizzy by showing glimpses of his vintage self. The Toronto Royals captain smashed 51 from just 22 balls but his valiant effort went in vain as his team lost their penultimate group-stage match to Brampton Wolves.George Munsey’s 66 helped Brampton Wolves post a mammoth total of 222 for 6 in 20 overs. In reply, Yuvraj-led Toronto Nationals got off to a strong start Brendon McCullum getting a quickfire 36.Yuvraj Singh, who walked in at No.4, started attack from the word go. The elegant left-hander took his fans down the memory lane as he was hitting sixes at will. Yuvraj hit five sixes and 3 boundaries and went on to score his first half-century of the T20 tournament in Canada.Yuvraj perished in the 16th over and Toronto Nationals eventually fell short of the target by 11 runs.Having hit a flurry of boundaries, Yuvraj said he was happy to get the runs in front of his Indian Premier League coach Mahela Jayawardene, who watched the Global T20 Canada match from the stands.”I was happy to see my IPL coach, he wasn’t happy with my bat swing during IPL. Hopefully the crowd enjoyed those big hits,” Yuvraj said.’Unbelievable knock’Speaking after leading his team to a win in a closely-fought contest, Brampton Wolves captain and New Zealand opener Colin Munro said Yuvraj Singh’s big-hitting display gave them a few nervy moments even after posting a mammoth total on the board.advertisement”The match was a lot closer, Yuvi played an unbelievable knock, put us under pressure. We batted well at the start, they came back well, but we got enough runs on the board. Were under pressure in the chase, but did well to come out on top,” Colin Munro said.Yuvraj Singh’s Toronto Nationals have won only 1 from 4 matches and are currently sitting at the 5th spot of the 6-team table. They need a win in their final match against Montreal Tigers on Sunday to remain in contention for progression to Round 2.Stunning catch by @YUVSTRONG12 to dismiss @54simmo.#GT2019 #BWvsTN @TorontoNational @BramptonWolves pic.twitter.com/ih1VzjxMQ5GT20 Canada (@GT20Canada) August 4, 2019Too many autographs to sign for @MahelaJay.And, as always, he’s doing it all with a smile. @CityBrampton @OfficialSLC @mipaltan #ilovecanada#GT2019#[email protected] pic.twitter.com/R0g2VzQelvGT20 Canada (@GT20Canada) August 3, 2019Later in the day, Edmonton Royals managed to end their winless streak in the ongoing GT20 Canada as they registered a massive eight-wicket victory over Winnipeg Hawks.
