The Golden Generation of Indian Cricket has brought countless memories to the fans. The dressing room consisted of stalwarts like Sachin Tendulkar, Rahul Dravid, Saurav Ganguly, Anil Kumble, and VVS Laxman. Yuvraj later joined the team as a young teenager and took the world by surprise with his impressive performances throughout his career. 

Yuvraj says

Yuvraj Singh shared his personal experience when he joined as a teenager in the squad with a room full of greats. Talking to Viacom 18 at an event to promote SA20, Yuvraj said,

“After 20 years, I still have to be careful about what I say in front of him (Kumble). I think it was a bit of a shock, to be honest. There’s Anil Kumble, Rahul Dravid, Tendulkar, and the likes of Ganguly (in the dressing room).”

He further added,

“There are all these guys you’re watching on television as a kid, and straightaway, you were in the dressing room with them. You had to ask the coach to not be seated next to them. The coach used to say they’re your teammates so you have to sit next to them. So, it took a while to start talking to them. But what the IPL has done is that the youngsters are now more comfortable around the players.”
