Yuvraj Singh, who retired from the International cricket last year after being snubbed from the World Cup last year, was the mainstay for Team India. He had a huge contribution in India’s victory in the ICC World Cup 2011 and ICC T20 World Cup 2007. The middle-order batsman was also adjudged with the Man of the tournament in India’s World Cup triumph.
Every cricket fan clearly remembers his six-consecutive hitting knock against England in the T20 World Cup in 2007. That knock had given Yuvraj the name of sixer king. Apart from his prowess with the bat, Yuvraj was also a handy left-arm spinner and his bowling played almost as big a role as his batting in the 2011 World Cup.
He scored 8,701 runs and took 111 wickets in his ODI career in addition to 1,900 runs in Tests and 1,177 runs in T20Is.
