Yuvraj Singh – A Warrior Who Defeat Cancer
Yuvraj Singh is a former Indian cricketer with Jersey No. 12, who played in all forms of the game. An all-rounder who bats left-handed in the middle order and bowls slow left-arm orthodox. One of the greatest limited over players to play for India.
Well, Yuvraj has 8,701 runs and 111 wickets to his name in ODIs, with 1,177 runs and 28 wickets in T20Is. He was particularly noted for his hitting of the ball and his fielding.
Through this journey, some matches that remain in my memory are – the 2002 NatWest series final, my first Test hundred in Lahore in 2004, the 2007 Test series in England, of course, the six sixes and the 2007 T20 World Cup. And then the most memorable one was the 2011 World Cup finals.
Yuvraj was a member of the Indian cricket team in One Day Internationals (ODIs) between 2000 and 2017. He was the vice-captain of the Indian ODI team between 2007–2008.
He was the Man of the Tournament in the 2011 ICC Cricket World Cup, and one of the top performers at the 2007 ICC Cricket World Twenty20, both of which India won. In a match against England at the 2007 World Twenty20.
He famously hit six Sixes in one over bowled by Stuart Board — a feat performed only three times previously in any form of senior cricket, and never in an international match between two Test cricket teams. In the same match, he set the record for the fastest fifty in Twenty20 Internationals and in all Twenty20 cricket, reaching 50 runs in 12 balls. During the 2011 World Cup, he became the first player to take a 5-wicket haul and score a 50 in the same World Cup match.
