XtraTime Web Desk:
India's hero in the 2011 ICC World Cup, Yuvraj Singh has at last broken his silence on his retirement plans. The stylish middle-order batsman has stated that he will decide his future after the ICC World Cup in 2019.

"I am going to look to play till 2019, whatever cricket I get to play. I will take a call when that year is over," Yuvraj said.

The 36-year-old all-rounder added that he has been playing for the country for nearly two decades and will have to retire someday.

"Everybody has to take a decision after a while. I have been playing international cricket since 2000, it has been almost 17-18 years on and off. So, I will definitely take a call after 2019," he added.

Yuvraj also spoke about his Indian Premier League (IPL) team Kings XI Punjab (KXIP), adding that their immediate goal is to qualify for the semi-finals.

"We are looking ahead to first qualify in the last four and I think we have got a great team this year. We have got a very powerful batting attack, smart bowling attack, and hopefully we look to qualify and then see if we can win the finals," he said.

The batsman was all praises for his teammate and star batsman Chris Gayle, who recently scored a century against Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) on April 19. He also added that their main competition this season is Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR).

"Oh, I am loving it. Chris has always been a friend off the field. He has been a great batsman, probably one of the most dangerous batsmen in the world and performing like a boss on the field. I am really happy for him and the way he is batting," he said.
