New Delhi: Former India all-rounder Yuvraj Singh has decided to come out of retirement and his ex-teammate Gautam Gambhir has reacted to the same.

Yuvraj, who quit from all forms of the game last year, now wants to play for Punjab in Twenty20 cricket and help his state side win the domestic trophy.

The 2011 World Cup hero has already written a letter to the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI). The Indian cricket board, headed by Yuvraj’s friend and former India captain Sourav Ganguly, has so far not said anything.

“As things stand now, I will be playing only T20s if I get the nod. But who knows, let’s see,” Yuvraj told Cricbuzz website.

Speaking to news agency ANI, Gambhir said everyone loves to see Yuvraj playing. “It’s his personal decision and each and everyone loves seeing Yuvi play,” Gambhir told ANI.

“If he wants to play for Punjab so why not? You can’t force a cricketer to start or to end and if he wants to come back from retirement and play with motivation, he is most welcome,” Gambhir, who is now a BJP MP, added.
