A heart touching journey of charming Yuvraj Singh, the real champion behind 2011 World Cup win

Recently, Our charming player “Yuvi” had declared his retirement from International Cricket. “I have decided to move on. Cricket has given me everything and that’s why I am standing here”, he said. While he was saying this, he had an emotional breakdown.”It’s been a love-hate relationship.”, he said. “I was extremely lucky to play 400 games for India. I could have never imagined it when I first started playing cricket.”, he added, “It was a love-hate relationship with his game. I can’t explain what it really means to me. This game taught me to fight. I have failed more times than I succeeded and I will never give up.”

Yuvraj is a strong survivor of cancer(cell cancer in his lungs), so he would be collaborating with cancer patients for some kind of work. He thanked everyone, who has been there with him during his entire span of a career. “To be a part of history that was made after 28 years, what more could I ask for”, Yuvi added, in relation to the 2011 World Cup victory.”It was the biggest hit of his career”, he said. “I think it’s the perfect day to move on”.he added, “This has been a wonderful journey and see you on the other side.” “If I had got to play in the last IPL, which we won, that would have been an ideal send-off, but that was not to be.”, he said. He said that he had already decided a year ago that he would be playing his last IPL edition, this year. As far as, his achievements are concerned, he has made 1,900 runs in the game connected to the longest format with three hundred and eleven half centuries. He was the part of powerful team Mumbai Indians in the IPL(Indian Premier League) and has played in four matches throughout this campaign.

He is a warrior, as when he was having cancer, he did not give up on his life and continued to fight with the deadly disease, and eventually when he conquered the deadly disease in 2012, he made his powerful comeback and played his last of forty test matches after that. The three major milestones in the career of Yuvraaj were that he got the title”man of the match”, in 2011, World Cup Triumph. Then secondly, in 2007, he made six sixes in one over against England, in 20-20 edition, and the last is that he made a hundred runs against Pakistan, in Lahore in 2004, in a test match. In 2011, World Cup, in the quarter-final of that tournament, His two wickets and fifty-seven, run knock, versus Australia, was just commendable.

One of the finest batsmen of India said that he would enter into the zone of a freelance career in foreign(20-20) leagues, approved by ICC(International Cricket Council).

If we talk about his entire career, he has played 402 international matches, scored 11,000 runs at the international level and has the record of 148 wickets, according to the reports. Yuvi’s retirement is really sad news in the history of Indian Cricket. We will miss you Yuvi, and the last remark here would be that, it’s really sad for the generation, born this second, as it won’t be able to see the charm of our player, who was the powerful lion on the cricket ground, in its own way.
