IPL 2019: Walking down the Wankhede stairs for the Mumbai Indians practice session ahead of the upcoming IPL season, veteran Yuvraj Singh recalled the 2011 World Cup triumph. The summit clash against Sri Lanka was played at the iconic venue where Yuvraj Singh was at the non-striker’s end when MS Dhoni hit the winning six. It seemed Yuvraj Singh got a little emotional as he walked out for the session along with Krunal Pandya. Yuvraj Singh would be playing for the Mumbai Indians franchise for the first time after he was brought on board at his base price of Rs 1 Cr.
