Yuvraj Singh, who retired from cricket in 2019, is expected to make a comeback in a third-tier competition. The likes of Chris Gayle, Brian Lara, Yuvraj Singh, and AB de Villiers could play T20 matches this summer.

Mulgrave Cricket Club, which is a part of Melbourne’s Eastern Cricket Association, has announced this news.  Former Sri Lanka opener Tillakaratne Dilshan, who lives in Melbourne’s east, had played six matches for the club in 2020, scoring 132 runs in the ECA’s T20 Cup.

It was also reported that Upul Tharanga could join Mulgrave this year, while Sanath Jayasuriya would coach the team.

Mulgrave president Malin Pullenayegam said on the 1116Sen podcast, “We wanted to show the local cricketing community we can get stars like Dilshan, Tharanga and Jayasuriya.”

“With Dilshan’s involvement and the backing of some good sponsors, we are on a recruitment drive. We are having discussions with AB de Villiers, Brian Lara and Yuvraj Singh, and though they are to be confirmed, these are the potential signings,” he said.
