    Default Thought of quitting last year, says Yuvraj

    Indian middle-order batman Yuvraj Singh revealed that he almost thought of quitting international cricket when he was dropped from both the Test and ODI teams last year. Yuvraj said it was the toughest phase in his 10-year-long career and his parents helped him overcome that lean period.

    "It was tough time for me. I think that was the toughest period for me in last 10 years. There was time when I asked myself do I want to continue. Seriously I thought do I want to play anymore or not. There was lot of negativity around me," he said.
    "Everytime I hit the field, I was getting injured. That time was really bad for me. I just came out of it with the help of few good friends, my strong father and mother. Some amount of self motivation and hard training," said Yuvraj.
    The 29-year-old left-hander was dropped from the squad that was picked for the Test series against Australia in October at home and from the ODI squad for the Asian Cup in Sri Lanka in June last year.
    Yuvraj said he is confident to hit form in the forthcoming World Cup. "My form is all great at the moment as compared to last couple of years. Last year it was tough because of injury. I am ready for the World Cup," he said.
    The Chandigarh-born player's role has increased as a part-time bowler in the side and Yuvraj said it was because of the absence of a left-arm spinner.
    "I have been bowling quite frequently and I try to bowl full 10 overs because you don't have main left-arm spinner in the side. I know that my role has increased as a bowler," he said.
    With youngsters like Virat Kohli and Suresh Raina around, does it make Yuvraj feel insecure or push him to do better? "I am not insecure. I have played for 10 years. When I was young kid I always thought of playing ODIs and now I have played more than 250 ODIs. So no insecurity," Yuvraj said.
    He said like all other Indian team-mates, he would like to win the World Cup for veteran batsman Sachin Tendulkar, who will be making his sixth and likely his last appearance in the quadrennial event. "I would give anything for the World Cup and would like to win it for him (Sachin). For India it will be dream come true," he said.
