Yuvraj Singh Complete Bio & Career

He was a star by the team he represented India at the Under-19 level. All the cricket pundits knew that this boy has something special to offer and without wasting much of time, selectors picked him right after the Under-19 World cup and included him in the national team that was to play an all-important ICC Champions trophy. He proved his inclusion right by scoring a match-winning 84 against the mighty Australian attack that has the likes of Brett Lee, Glen McGrath, and Jason Gillespie. Since then, he never looked back and proved it that he is India’s biggest match-winner of all time. When the chips were down, he rescued team India more often than not. He was arguably India’s best big-match player.
After India’s disastrous show at the 2007 World Cup, he made a point at the maiden t-20 world cup in 2007. He scored a match-winning 30 balls 70 against the Australians in the semifinal and his six sixes against the England side became the highlights of the inaugural event. India finally won the world cup and it was this man who played some vital knocks to make it possible. He was instrumental again in the 2011 World Cups that India won. He won 4 Man of the match awards along with the man of the tournament in the big event. Right after the world cup, it was known that he is suffering from cancer. The whole nation prayed for him and he defeated cancer and came back strongly. Though he was in and out of the team after 2011, he made a strong start to the 2017 season and made the best possible comeback. He, however, couldn't hold on to his place for long and was dropped from the side after the tour of West Indies in 2017. Though he has made his desire to play the 2019 World Cup selectors started looking beyond him since 2018 and therefore even after an impressive IPL 2019, he didn't get selected.
