'I have chose to move on' - Yuvraj Singh announces global, IPL retirement

Yuvraj Singh in action against England at a practice game at CCI Mumbai

"I am proud of what I have achieved on and off the field". He was in his teens and he was playing against some of the world's best cricketers.

The 37-year-old was diagnosed with mediastinal seminoma, a germ-cell tumour located between his two lungs immediately after the 2011 World Cup, but made a return to worldwide cricket and also established a cancer foundation.

Yuvraj said that he never imagined that he would go on to play 400 games for his country. And to my true fans who have always supported me endlessly, I can't thank you enough specially when the times were tough. You gave us so many memories and victories and I wish you the best for life and everything ahead. I've had a word with the BCCI. I really want to make a difference to the society by setting example through my inspiring story. In the process, he reached the fastest fifty ever in a T20 game, off just 12 balls, which was also the fastest in any form of worldwide cricket.

"I did not tell anyone in BCCI that I have to play the last match". I would also like to thank all my sports staff who made it possible for my body to last this long specially Nitin Patel & Ashish Kaushik. The highlight of his career so to speak was the 2011 world cup performance which won him the player of tournament award. He debuted for global cricket when he was selected for ICC KnockOut Trophy in 2000.


Probably my worst day in my cricket career was the 2014 T20 World Cup final against Sri Lanka when I scored 11 off 21 balls.

"My life has been like a roller coaster ride". It was so shattering that I felt my career was all but over, everyone wrote me off too. Then I took a bit of time [off] and I realised why I play cricket; it's because I love the game. He put those memories behind and made a comeback to the cricket field. I recorded my highest one-day score of 150 in 127 balls when everybody said it was impossible. I never stopped believing in myself, no matter what the world said. In his sporadic Test appearances, he scored three centuries and 11 half-centuries in aggregating 1900 runs, and in T20Is - where he headlined India's 2007 title-winning effort with a blast of six sixes in a Stuart Broad over - he ended with 1177 runs and 28 wickets.

Yuvraj revealed that his first love had been roller-skating and he only reluctantly played cricket because his father, one-test bowler Yograj Singh, would not let him take up any other sport.
