Yuvraj Singh has no qualms in conceding that he has been "failing" but the out-of-favour Indian cricketer says he won't give up on his career at least till 2019. The all-rounder has been struggling to keep a place in the side for some time now. "I would like to tell that I am failing. I still fail. I failed the last three fitness tests but yesterday I passed my fitness test. After 17 years I am still failing," Yuvraj said.

Speaking at an interactive session, the veteran said his career decisions will be solely decided by him. "I am not afraid of failure. I have gone through ups and downs. I have seen defeat and that's what's the pillar of success. To be a successful person in your life, you've got to be defeated. That will make you a stronger person," he said. "I am still playing. I don't know what format I am going to play. But I am pushing everyday as hard as I used to, may be harder than before because I am getting older. I see myself playing cricket till 2019 and obviously take a call after that," he said. It was learnt that he has cleared the 'Yo-Yo' fitness test, which he had failed in the past.
