Yuvraj Singh lashes out at BCCI after Punjab’s exit from Vijay Hazare Trophy

Former India cricketer Yuvraj Singh questioned the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) on whether it gives any importance to domestic cricket in the country.

Prepare for the greatest experience after eating a nutritious breakfast. You will travel over some of the highest passes in the world on your adventure, and you will be greeted by ever-changing vistas of the desolate landscape. Stop at the café on Khardung-La Pass, the highest all-season motorable road in the world, and take in the scenery; you'll feel as though you're on top of the world. Upon leaving Khardung-la, the terrain changes to a white sand desert as you approach the Nubra Valley, which is home to the Nubra Sand Dunes. Visit the Diskit Monastery, the oldest and biggest monastery in Ladakh, which also contains a sizable Buddha statue, if time permits.

This was after Punjab crashed out of the Vijay Hazare trophy when rain played spoilsport in their match against Tamil Nadu.

Batting first Tamil Nadu were restricted to 174/6 in 39 overs. Chasing the target, Punjab had scored 52/2 in 13 overs when rain stopped play.

After the game was called off Tamil Nadu secured a place in semis as they had more wins (9) in the league stage than Punjab.
Inquiring as to why there was no reserve day in the Vijay Hazare trophy after, Yuvraj wrote on social media: “Again an unfortunate result for Punjab against TN in the Vijay Hazare tournament, again Punjab cruising and game abandoned due to bad weather, and on points, we don’t go to semis! Why don’t we have a reserve day? Or is it domestic tournament it doesn’t really matter? @BCCI.”

“Played outstanding cricket in the league stage in a very tough A/B group and qualified for the knock outs brilliantly. Now we’re out of the tournament without even playing the quarter finals due to rain. #reallydisappointed #VijayHazareTrophy #punjabteam @BCCI,” wrote Punjab cricketer Mandeep Singh on Twitter.

Off-spinner Harbhajan Singh also joined the chorus and vented his frustration: “Sick rule why not reserve day for these tournaments @BCCI must look into this and change it,” he wrote on a post by Mandeep Singh.
On Monday, the last two Quarter-final matches were scheduled in Alur. And both were decided by rain with around 12 overs being played.
