Indian power packed batsman Yuvraj Singh takes a big decision in life as he announces retirement from all forms of cricket. Although, he confirmed of pursuing a freelance career in ICC approved foreign T20 Leagues. The big decision surfaced on Monday, 10 June.
Yuvraj Singh devoted nearly 2 decades to cricket since his debut in One-Day Internationals against Kenya in 2000. In a press conference in Mumbai earlier today, the 37 year old cricketer came forward with his decision and said, “It has been like a rollercoaster ride with a beautiful story but everything has to come to an end. It is the right time to go.” Further adding on an emotional note he said, “I was extremely lucky to have played 400 games for India. I had never imagined it when I first started playing cricket, iti been like a dream. It taught me to fight. I’ve failed more than I’ve succeeded and will never give up.”
The highlights of his career being the 2011 World Cup triumph, in 2007 Twenty20 he registered six sixes in an over against England and his first Test century against the most popular rival Pakistan in Lahore in 2004.
The lowest point of his life was when he was confirmed of having suffered from cancer. Although, like a fighter he is, he survived that stage of life. He last played a Test in 2012 and an ODI and T20 in 2017. Yuvraj retires with over 11,000 international runs and 148 International wickets in all three formats of cricket.
Many of his teammates and professionals from the Cricket world took to Twitter to wish him good luck for future:
