World Cup winning captain Kapil Dev on Wednesday said a player of Yuvraj Singh’s stature should have got a farewell from the ground and the stylish southpaw will command a place in his all-time XI as and when he comes up with it.

Neither Yuvraj nor the BCCI has spoken on why the 2011 World Cup hero did not get a farewell game. The 37-year-old on Monday announced his retirement after 17 years in international cricket.

“Yuvraj will be in my all-time eleven whenever I sit down to make my team. I would love to see a player like him get the farewell from the ground than he saying ‘I am retired’,” said Kapil at the launch of fantasy sports platform ‘Apne11’.
