Yuvraj Singh has undoubtedly been one of the greatest all-rounders India have ever produced. He was one of the major reasons why the Men in Blue were able to win the 2007 World T20 and the Cricket World Cup in the sub-continent where he wielded magic with both leather and willow. He has tons of experience and carved himself a reputation as an indispensable member of India.
Last season, he was listed in the auction for INR 2 crore, but he got only one bid from Punjab, captained by Ravichandran Ashwin. The experienced campaigner had a season equivalent to a nightmare. Yuvraj played eight matches in which he notched 65 runs at an average of 10.83 and with a top score of 20. He was in and out of the team owing to his shoddy all-round performance.
The 36-year-old strained to such an extent that he played at a horrendous strike rate of 89.04, which doesn’t justify the talent he has. He wasn’t entrusted with the ball either as he bowled only a couple of overs without any success. The auction for the upcoming season is set to take place in December and ahead of the same, Punjab has released the veteran.
In the meantime, Twitter reckons that Yuvraj should be picked by MS Dhoni-led Chennai Super Kings (CSK). Last season, CSK resorted to picking quite a few aged players in the auction for which they were criticised. Nevertheless, the franchise came out all guns blazing and won their third IPL title, beating Sunrisers Hyderabad in the final at the iconic Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai.
note my point : If Yuvraj Singh play under Dhoni in CSK he will perform very very well

If Yuvraj is picked by CSK in the auction can he make a comeback to the Indian team as Rayudu did🤔

I think Chennai super kings should pick Yuvraj Singh in IPL auction 2019. He is best batsman and bowler also. CSK will enough strong after picked Yuvraj Singh.
And CSK also picked Mohit Sharma and Irfan Pathan
