Yuvraj Singh retires from worldwide cricket

Yuvraj Singh retires from worldwide cricket

"But let me tell you this, Cricket has given me everything I have and it is the reason why I sit here today", an emotional Yuvraj said during a media interaction in Mumbai on Monday.

One of India's greatest limited overs cricketers, Yuvraj has been seriously contemplating retirement from global cricket and pursue a freelance career in ICC approved foreign Twenty20 leagues.

T20 World Cup (2007): Yuvraj Singh was at his very best during T20 World Cup in 2007. But he continued to be a huge favorite for teams in the Indian Premier League.

Yuvraj last played a Test in 2012 and ODI and T20 in 2017.

One performance is never enough to highlight Yuvraj Singh's contribution to Indian cricket. 362 runs, 15 wickets, 4 man-of-the-match awards and the Player of the Tournament.

Chelsea lodge appeal against FIFA transfer ban at CAS
As reported by the Daily Mail , CAS released a statement this morning revealing that they have received Chelsea's approach. CHELSEA have appealed against their transfer ban - but still do not know if the punishment will be put on hold.

January 2000: Yuvraj's talent is spotted fairly early and he makes a mark in India's Under-19 World Cup triumph in Sri Lanka in 2000.

NatWest Trophy (2002): It was the NatWest Trophy final of 2002 where Sourav Ganguly's men chased down a huge total of 326.

In 2007, during the ICC T20 World Cup match against England, Yuvraj hit 6 sixes off Stuart Broad's over to create history.

Mumbai:Yuvraj Singh will always be the match and cup victor of the 2011 World Cup final for India. Obviously with the BCCI's permission I would love to go and play this year. At the 2014 IPL auctions, Royal Challengers Bangalore bought Yuvraj for an all-time high price of Rs 14 crore and in 2015, the Delhi Daredevils bought him for Rs 16 crore making him the most expensive player ever to be sold in the cash-rich league.
