“I kept trying to make a comeback, but if it was not my ankle, it was my back. You cannot fool around with your body. I had surgeries, rehab … After 2014, I did not play at all for a few years, but I trained and tried to play in 2018. But I could not make it, so I started thinking about the future,” ESPN Cricinfo quoted Singh as saying.

“It is not an overnight decision, but once I could not get fit for the 2018-19 season, I thought it made sense to leave. Yuvi (Yuvraj Singh) encouraged me a lot, the PCA (Cricket Association” Punjab Cricket Association) also backed me, and I gave it my best. But, unfortunately, it didn’t happen. So I thought it best to retire and think about what to do next,” he added.
