“When the time comes, I will be the first one to hang up my boots,” International Cricket Council (ICC) quoted Singh as saying.
“Last two years have been up and down. [I] couldn’t decide what I wanted to do but main thing was [remembering] why I played the game when I started playing the game. I played the game because I enjoyed playing cricket. That time, I was not playing for India. I was playing for the under 14s, under 16s. So till the time I enjoy playing cricket, I will play,” he said during the post-match conference here on Sunday.
Despite his half-century, Delhi Capitals won the match by 37 runs.
Mumbai Indians will now face Royal Challengers Bangalore for their next match on March 28 in Bangalore.
