World Cup Hero Yuvraj Singh Said Goodbye To Cricket

Dashing Cricketer Yuvraj Singh had announced his retirement from all formats of cricket. Yuvraj is the hero of 2011 World Cup and this announcement has come exactly when India is playing the 2019 World Cup. Yuvraj has 8,701 runs and 111 wickets to his name in ODIs, with 1,177 runs and 28 wickets in T20Is.

Yuvraj Singh was at his career best in the 2011 World Cup with 362 runs, 15 wickets, 4 man-of-the-match awards and the Player of the Tournament. After World Cup, it was revealed that he is battling cancer throughout the tournament and after elaborate treatment in Boston came back to the Cricket Field.

In 2012, Yuvraj was honoured with the Arjuna Award, India’s second highest sporting award by the Government of India. In 2014, he was awarded the Padma Shri, India’s fourth highest civilian honour. At the 2014 IPL auction, Royal Challengers Bangalore bought Yuvraj for an all-time high price of ₹14 crore and, in 2015, the Delhi Daredevils bought him for ₹16 crore making him the most expensive player ever to be sold in the IPL.

On 12 November 2015, Yuvraj got engaged to Hazel Keech and married her on 30 November 2016. The 37-year-old last represented India in June 2017, against the West Indies.
