Yuvraj Singh: India all-rounder retires from worldwide cricket

Yuvraj Singh: India all-rounder retires from worldwide cricket

Yuvraj went on to play 40 Tests, 304 ODIs and 58 T20Is in his exemplary career.

Yuvraj will continue to play in domestic T20 leagues. "This game taught me how to fight, how to fall, to dust off, to get up again and move forward", Yuvi added.

A destructive left-handed middle-order batsman and left-arm spinner, Yuvraj famously hit England bowler Stuart Broad for six sixes in an over at the 2007 World T20.

Walking into global sunset after ramping up the swagger and style quotient of what used to be a sombre Indian dressing room for 17 years, Yuvraj was flooded with wholesome praise by the cricket community, with close friend-cum-mentor Tendulkar leading the way.

"It's been a love-hate relationship".

"I would have been satisfied if I could have played more games (in IPL 2019), would have been happy to leave the sport with that". Yuvraj Singh started his career from the Punjab Under-16s at the age of 13 years in the 1995-96 season against Jammu and Kashmir. Overnight, the 20-year old had turned into an Indian cricketing sensation and not to mention, a teenage heart-throb. "It's been too stressful, just thinking about my worldwide career, performing, and big tournaments like IPL... hopefully I'll just enjoy myself", he said. Cricket has given me everything I have.

The attacking left-hander listed the the 2011 World Cup triumph, being man of the match in the event's final, getting six sixes in an over against England in the same tournament and his first Test hundred, against Pakistan in Lahore in 2004, as the three most special moments of his career. "Next year I dont know". "But I never stopped believing in myself". I told them I don't need the game, if I don't pass the Yo-Yo test, I'll go home quietly. He said this shattered him and he needed some time to recover from the jolt and rediscover why he played cricket.

His last appearance for India came in an ODI against West Indies in 2017. In the process, he became the first all-rounder to score 300-plus runs and take 15 wickets in a single edition of the showpiece event.
