The inevitable news finally arrives! India’s 2011 World Cup hero and a cancer survivor bid adieu to all forms of international cricket at the age of 37. The left-handed batsman, who made an inspiring comeback into the Indian national team after battling lung cancer, had called for a media interaction on Monday and was hugely speculated to retire from the game. And Twitter couldn't stop but praise, while also grieving about the goodbye of one of cricket's finest. Yuvraj Singh Announces Retirement From International Cricket.
Singh bid farewell to a 19-year prosperous journey that saw him lift the ICC Cricket World Cup at home in 2011 and the inaugural T20 World Cup in 2007. The left-handed all-rounder, who debuted for the Indian national cricket team as a 19-year-old in 2000 against Kenya, was instrumental to India’s both World Cup victories in the 21st century. He was also declared the man of the tournament for his incredible performance in the 2011 edition of the ICC ODI Cricket World Cup, making him the first all-rounder to score over 300 runs and take 15 wickets in a single edition of the World Cup.
