Yuvraj Singh, who has announced his retirement on 10th of June from all forms of cricket. However, he has already extended wishes to Team India for their ongoing ICC World Cup 2019 campaign. Also, Yuvraj has complimented Rohit Sharma for his exceptional approach at the mega-events.

Following an exceptional hundred from Rohit in the ongoing high-profile clash between India and Pakistan, Yuvraj has revealed his conservation with Virat Kohli‘s deputy.

The 37-year-old Yuvraj, who played a crucial role for Team India at the 2011 World Cup, reiterated he had a chat with Team India opener that he is getting starts, but unable to convert them into big runs.

He further followed it by saying that it has happened genuinely for a reason.

The southpaw reminisced Sachin Tendulkar has asked him precisely the same during his home-bound World Cup campaign.

Back then, India thrashed Sri Lanka by six wickets to lift their second World Cup title after 28 years since 1983.

Interestingly, Yuvraj had bagged Player of the Tournament award. In 2011, he has accumulated 362 runs apart from 15 scalps to his name.

Meanwhile, Yuvraj has put forth his prediction that his former teammate Rohit will end up as the Play of the Tournament in the ongoing twelfth edition of the World Cup.

The multi-nation tournament has begun on May 30 and will culminate with the grand final at the iconic Lord’s on July 14.

“Chatting to Rohit at IPL time! Discussion about getting starts. But not getting big runs. And I was like you don’t know what lies ahead of you it’s happening for a reason! Same words told to me by @sachin_rt before 2011 wcup, my mos of 2019 prediction from India @ImRo45,” Yuvraj tweeted during India’s innings when Rohit played a sensational knock against Pakistan.

As of now, India has made most of the opportunity against Pakistan. At Manchester, they posted 336 for five in 50 allotted overs following a rain halt.

For the first wicket, Rohit alongside KL Rahul has posted 136-run partnership before bringing up his 24th ODI ton. Also, he has brought up his third World Cup ton at the World Cup.

With his sublime knock off 113-ball 140, Rohit is second leading run-getter at the ICC World Cup 2019. Meanwhile, Aaron Finch is leading the table with 343 runs at an average of 68.60.

Here’s the heartwarming tweet from Yuvraj Singh for Rohit Sharma:
