"Love u brothaman you go be a legend", Yuvraj Singh said in his reply to Rohit Sharma's tweet.

-I gave my blood and sweat to the game once I got to it, especially when it came to playing for the country.

The battle with cancer soon after the 2011 World Cup triumph was perhaps the biggest challenge that Yuvraj encountered.

Yuvraj has played for as many as five IPL teams since its inaugural edition in 2008.

"I just want to have fun and enjoy time for myself".

The space station was built jointly by the US, Russia, Japan, the European Space Agency and the Canadian Space Agency in 1998. They will need to book their training, their ride and their up-to-30-day stay through an American space carrier.

"Winning the 2011 World Cup, being Man of the Series, four MoM awards was all like a dream, which was followed by harsh reality of getting diagnosed with cancer".

The 37-year-old all-rounder, accompanied by his wife and mother, told reporters of his decision at a city hotel close to the Wankhede Stadium where India lifted their last 50-overs World Cup title in 2011. In what seemed a game that was there for England to win - after India's famed top-order flopped - Yuvraj combined with Mohammad Kaif to take the visitors home as visuals of a shirtless Sourav Ganguly waving the jersey from the Lord's balcony became part of folklore. It was like touching the sky and then falling down at light speed and hitting the ground hard. He was unsold in the first round of auctions for IPL 2019 though he was later picked by Mumbai Indians for just ₹1 crore. The life and times of Yuvi... you will always be missed but never forgotten our friend our hero... "Now it is time to say goodbye", he said, at times fighting back tears as he made the announcement.

Yuvraj too replied saying "You know how I feel inside!" So I went back to basics and scored heavily in domestic cricket.

"I finally made my comeback in one-day cricket after three years in Cuttack on 19th January against England in 2017".

In the 2019 edition of the Indian Premier League, he had nearly gone unsold before Mumbai Indians grabbed him at his base price. The Chandigarh born left-hander scored a total of 11,778 global runs and picked up 148 wickets.
