Yuvraj Singh replies to Ganguly’s tweet
Yuvraj Singh announced his final decision to retire from all forms of cricket during a press conference at a South Bombay hotel on June 10. He has been one of the significant parts of Indian cricket history with a cricket career spanning nearly two decades.
“After 25 years in and around the 22 yards and almost 17 years of international cricket on and off, I have decided to move on. This game taught me how to fight, how to fall, to dust off, to get up again and move forward,” Yuvraj Singh said at the press conference.
Winding back the clock, Sourav Ganguly and the Indian team management found out that Yuvraj Singh is so special and talented. They learnt about Yuvraj Singh after he was named the Player of the Tournament in the 2000 Under-19 World Cup in which he bagged 203 runs and picked up 12 wickets as Mohammad Kaif’s team bagged the title after outsmarting Sri Lanka in the final.
Yuvraj Singh played a sensational role in India’s success in the inaugural World T20 in 2007 and then he continued to achieve success in 50-over World Cup in 2011 where he was named the Player of the Tournament. His phenomenal six sixes in an over that he smashed against England’s Stuart Broad in the quarter-final of the tournament was an absolute peach of a knock.
Yuvraj was able to score as many as 362 runs in the World Cup 2011 tournament at an average of 90.50 including a hundred and four half-centuries. He also picked 15 wickets in the tourney at an average of 25.13 including a five-wicket haul.
