Yuvraj ready for fun after announcing global retirement

Yuvraj ready for fun after announcing global retirement

Yuvraj Singh has been in the Indian Cricket team for over 25 years and has announced his retirement from the global cricket.

Neha Dhupia expressed how Yuvraj Singh will always remain one of her favourite cricketers.

The 37-year-old was a key member of the Indian teams that won the World T20 in 2007 and the World Cup in 2011. He put together 1900 runs in the longest format, and 8701 in the one-dayers, the format in which he enjoyed most success.

India all-rounder Yuvraj Singh has retired from global cricket.

On the back of 9 consecutive losses in ODI tournaments featuring three or more teams, India went to England, with little hope of competing against Sri Lanka and the hosts themselves.

One of India's greatest limited overs cricketers, Yuvraj is reportedly keen to pursue a freelance career in ICC-approved foreign Twenty20 leagues. Tottering at 146/5 chasing 326 against England at Lord's, Yuvraj (63-ball 69) and Mohammad Kaif (87*) helped script a historic win. Rohit, who captained Yuvraj in the recent IPL at the Mumbai Indians posted a cryptic tweet saying Yuvraj "deserved a better send off".

Friends: Speaking about the Coldplay rocker's new girlfriend, Gwyneth gushed to the publication: "I adore her". While Paltrow's set-up may not work for everyone, it's clearly working for her.

India won the inaugural edition of the T20 World Cup way back in 2007 under the leadership of their then newly-appointed skipper MS Dhoni.

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.

Moreover, the feat has since never been repeated against a leading bowler from a test playing nation. 362 runs, 15 wickets, 4 man-of-the-match awards and the Player of the Tournament. The Chandigarh born left-hander scored a total of 11,778 worldwide runs and picked up 148 wickets.

He was diagnosed with lung cancer in 2011 but returned after treatment. Not one to quit, he battled through the illness and emerged victoriously.

He thanked Sourav Ganguly, his first global captain, for giving him the chance to play.
