India's legendary cricketer Yuvraj Singh said that he has not yet decided and he would be the first one to bid adieu when he feels that his time is up. 

Yuvraj Singh was India's 2007 World T20 and 2011 World Cup hero but remained out of national team's scheme of things for good. 

He also had a poor track record in Indian Premier League but started the twelfth edition on a bright note with a half-century for his latest franchise Mumbai. 

The 37-year-old admitted that at times he felt indecisive about carrying on. 

"When the time comes, I will be the first one to hang my boots," Yuvraj told the media persons after Mumbai's 37-run defeat against Delhi on Sunday. 

"The last two years, have been up and down (for me). And I could not decide on what to do," said the 37-year-old.

"The main thing for me was why I played the game when I started off. I played the game because I enjoyed playing cricket. When I enjoyed playing cricket, I was not playing for India. I was playing for U-14s and U-16s. So till the time, I enjoy playing cricket, I am going to play."

"I have been speaking to Sachin (Tendulkar) as well and he has gone through that time when he was 37-38-39 (and how he felt). Talking to him makes things easier for me. And I am just playing because I enjoy playing cricket pretty much," he signed off. 

Yuvraj said that when he did a self-introspection, he found that he is still enjoying the game just as he did as a U-16 cricketer not thinking about national team selection.
