Yuvraj Singh Height, Age, Net Worth, House, Affairs, Biography

Yuvraj Singh will probably remain one of the unsolved enigmas in Indian cricket. For a man who was once hailed as the next big name in Indian cricket, Yuvraj never lived up to the expectations at the Test match level.

In a highly chequered career, Yuvraj Singh will be always remembered for guiding India to two World Cup wins, in the 2007 World T20 and 2011 World Cup. In the 2007 event, Yuvraj played some very crucial innings, including a 16-ball 58 against England and a 30-ball 70 against Australia in the semi-final. In 2011, he shone with both bat and ball and helped India win their first 50-overs World Cup since 1983. While Yuvraj’s exploits in Test don’t match his in the limited-overs, he featured in the historic Test in Chennai in the wake of a terror attack in Mumbai and scored an unbeaten 85 as India chased down 387 against all odds.

Yuvraj Singh

 

Son of former India player Yograj Singh, Yuvraj was a child prodigy and made a name for himself courtesy of power-packed yet classy batting. He made big waves in the 2000 Under-19 World Cup by plundering plenty of runs as the team lifted the trophy. His talent didn’t go unnoticed as soon he was called up to the Indian team for the 2000 ICC Knockout trophy in Kenya. And playing only his second game, he scored a match-winning 84 against the likes of Glenn McGrath, Brett Lee and Jason Gillespie.
Later in his career, Yuvraj beat what was his probably toughest challenge – cancer. Yuvraj played through the 2011 World Cup with a rare form of lung cancer and had to undergo chemotherapy after the event. He came back after a year and played some good innings but it was evident that the cancer had taken its toll and that he wasn’t the same player anymore.
In 2017, Yuvraj Singh returned to the ODI squad after three years and scored a match-winning century against England, and during his innings showed glimpses of vintage Yuvi. His story is one that has plenty of bravery elements.
