Indian all-rounder Yuvraj Singh will continue playing cricket till 2019 before making a call on his retirement. He is 36 years of age and played his last game for India in June 2017.

Yuvraj, who was the anchorman in the both of the last two World Cups India won (2007 and 2011) is looking at upcoming IPL as a good platform to make a case to keep himself in the picture for World Cup 2019.

"I am looking forward to a good IPL. It's a very important tournament for me as it will only set me to play cricket till 2019. I am looking to play cricket till 2019, whatever cricket I get to play and take a call after that," Yuvraj said on the sidelines of the 18th Laureus World Sports Awards in Monaco.

Even though he suffered from a rare germ cell cancer post the success of ICC World Cup 2011, a condition that virtually hemorrhaged his career, Yuvraj regrets not cementing himself in the Test side the most.

The Southpaw also praised captain Virat Kohli claiming the Delhi batsmen led the lead from the front scoring important runs at the right juncture.

Finally, when asked about the Under-19 cricketers, Yuvraj was all praise about them and was looking forward to seeing them play for India in the coming years.
