The cricket mastermind Yuvraj Singh announced his retirement from international cricket, effective immediately. The Chandigarh boy has been known for the challenging style of play he executes. 17 centuries and a total of 11000 runs throughout his successful cricketing carrier is what makes him stand out.
India’s 2011 world cup hero, Yuvraj Singh stood strong against cancer he fought through the most challenging circumstances. Yuvi’s retirement has hit everyone hard but the harder part here is, the last time he was seen playing was in 2017. Didn’t he deserve a better farewell? Please share your views in the comments section below.
Many celebrities took to twitter lauding his carrier, here are some of the tweets.
