Yuvraj Singh is set to lose the captaincy of the King’s XI Punjab IPL team, a high-level source within the team’s management confirmed.
“The management wants Yuvi to concentrate more on his game and it’s a thought that he should be relieved from the burden of the captaincy,” the source said. “However, nothing concrete has been decided yet.”
A team representative insisted that Yuvraj’s removal from the captaincy had nothing to do with his form or leadership.
The source also denied reports that Sri Lanka skipper Kumar Sangakkara was the likely replacement. For his part Sangakkara has already made it clear that he had no ambitions of leading the IPL team.
