Yuvraj Singh, a winner of two World Cup titles who overcame cancer and a drop in form to fight his way back into India’s national side, announced on Monday that he is retiring from cricket.
“It was a great roller coaster ride and beautiful story but it has to come to an end. It was the right time to go,” the 37-year-old left-hand batsman told a press conference in Mumbai.
At his peak, Yuvraj was a rip-roaring batsman. He scored 14 ODI centuries and bludgeoned England’s Stuart Broad for six sixes in one over at the 2007 World T20.
