CWC hero Yuvraj Singh announces retirement from global cricket

2011 Cricket World Cup hero Yuvraj Singh announces retirement from international cricket

One of Yuvraj Singh's pillars during his journey from cricket to cancer and back, Sachin Tendulkar on Monday thanked the southpaw for all he has "done for the sport". Yes, it was the time when Yuvraj Singh registered six sixes in an over off Stuart Broad. Gradually, Yuvraj was no longer the first name on the team sheet. Yuvraj also was a role model as he fought off cancer to come back into global cricket, was also a star of the Indian Premier League, representing several franchises and scoring heavily during his heydays.

Not to forget what Yuvraj did during the 2002 Natwest Trophy final at Lord's. Tottering at 146/5 chasing 326 against England at Lord's, Yuvraj (63-ball 69) and Mohammad Kaif (87*) helped script a historic win. I don't think I hated the game, because the love I have for it today, which will remain a constant till the end of [my] life. His team Mumbai Indians won the 2019 IPL, but Yuvraj was benched after the initial few matches following average returns.

"Winning the 2011 World Cup, being Man of the Series, four MoM awards was all like a dream, which was followed by harsh reality of getting diagnosed with cancer".

Yuvraj Singh, who is one of India's greatest limited overs cricketers, last played a Test in 2012 and ODI and T20 in 2017. It was like touching the sky and then falling down at light speed and hitting the ground hard. He played only four matches for the franchise scoring 98 runs with one half-century. The life and times of Yuvi... you will always be missed but never forgotten our friend our hero...

Huawei secures deal to roll out 5G in Russian Federation
Xi and Russian President Vladimir Putin also attended a launch ceremony for a Chinese auto factory in Russia's Tula region. The deal is likely to provide some relief to Huawei, which has been under intense global scrutiny in recent months.

He suffered a new blow when India reached the World T20 final against Sri Lanka in 2014 and he was later dropped from the one-day side after playing poorly.

"I did not tell anyone in BCCI that I have to play the last match".

"Last year only I had thought that this year's IPL will be my last", Yuvraj said addressing the media in Mumbai. "I passed the yo-yo test and the rest is not my call". "Now it is time to say goodbye", he said, at times fighting back tears as he made the announcement.
