Former Indian all-rounder Yuvraj Singh has announced retirement from international cricket after an illustrious career spanning over 17 years during which he conquered on many fronts whether it was against cancer or against world class bowling lineups.
Yuvraj played 40 Tests, 304 ODIs, and 58 T20Is for India and scored 1900, 8701, and 1177 runs in those games respectively. He always remained a dependable spinner during his time as he also has 111 ODI wickets along with 28 T20I scalps.
The all-rounder became a vital a part of the Indian side in the late 2000s as they started to depend on his finishing skills in limited overs cricket consistently since he used to hit the ball with great power.
From helping India win the 2011 World Cup while battling cancer to hitting 6 sixes off the bowling of Chris Broad, from playing the historic innings in the final of Natwest series against England in 2003 to making a remarkable comeback to cricket after defeating cancer, Yuvraj had a roller coaster ride while playing for his country which makes him one of the most respected players in India.
