“I just feel there are very fewer guys to look up to and I feel that a sense of respect towards seniors, that has become a thin line now.“

He feels that the current seniors like Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma do not command enough respect.

After playing for India, you have to be more careful about your image. But I feel the third generation. There are only you two seniors, Virat and you, who are playing all the formats, rest of the guys are coming and going.“

He hints at social media being one of the reasons for indiscipline

Furthermore, Yuvraj Singh adds that due to the presence of social media, the younger players get easily distracted. During his time, the players were always cautious about their behaviour so that they always upheld the image of India. On top of that, during Singh’s time the juniors genuinely feared getting on the wrong side of seniors.

“I think juniors, because of social media, party scenes, these things, we could not even think about that in our time. Because we had that fear that if we do some mistake our senior will tell us that do not do this, this is not right.”

Finally, he says that all players who are not on national duty must be given domestic duty. This will be to ensure that they have the experience of playing on different surfaces around the country.
