Yuvraj Singh, World Cup 2011 hero, announces his retirement from global cricket”

"After 25 years in and around the 22 yards and nearly 17 years of global cricket on and off, I have chose to move on".

The 20-year-old though has never played Yuvraj Singh in an worldwide match but played alongside him for Sunrisers Hyderabad in the Indian Premier League, said: "Your strength & belief on and off the field is truly inspiring".

Yuvraj earlier on Monday, announced to retire from worldwide cricket, wrapping up his almost two decade long cricket journey having played 304 ODIs, 58 T20Is and 40 Tests. In a tweet, Ganguly said every good things comes to an end and said the latter was like his brother. I met Yuvraj during the 2003 World Cup clash at Centurion, where he played a really good knock. I told them I don't need the game, if I don't pass the Yo-Yo test, I'll go home quietly.

India's dashing left-arm cricketer Yuvraj Singh chose to hang up his boots on Monday and it left all those who know the cricketer shocked.

Heaping praises on Yuvraj, Akhtar said that the former is the most elegant left-hander India has produced so far.

Yuvraj is not only remembered for his fluent big-hitting and influencing the game with his bowling but also for his fearless tale of defeating cancer. "I was deeply impressed by his in-depth knowledge of the game", Akhtar said in his YouTube channel. His decision also came when India are playing in the cricket World Cup in England and Wales. The feat included four Man of the Match awards and Man of the Tournament for the 362 runs and 15 wickets. The all-rounder who was instrumental in helping India win the 2007 World T20 and 2011 World Cup, revealed Sourav Ganguly and Gary Kirsten as his favourite skipper and coach respectively.

"He is a great cricketer, a great friend and a very patriotic Indian. This is the same batch that created history and went on to win the World Cup under the great captaincy of MS Dhoni and exceptional coaching of Gary Kirsten, probably the best worldwide coach I played under", Yuvraj added. He wrote: "You know how I feel inside!"
