Yuvraj Singh, the best number-4 batsman in ODI cricket history, took international cricket retirement last year. He is considered one of India’s best left-handed batsmen.

Team India was successful in winning the One Day World Cup in 2011 thanks to Yuvraj’s best all-round game. India became champions after 1983. Despite the symptoms of cancer, Yuvi gave the trophy to Team India. He was declared man of the tournament.

Yuvraj played a memorable inning of 20 March 2011 against the West Indies. It has been 9 years since that innings. Yuvraj was not well in that league stage match. He was also seen puking on the field.

In an interview given in the 2014 news channel Aaj Tak, Yuvraj said, “At first I thought that I am having problems with the heat of Chennai. I always wanted to score a century in a World Cup match, but that could not happen because I used to bat at number 6. I told God then that whatever happens, I may die after this but India should become the World Cup winner. “

It was also claimed that blood was pouring from Yuvi’s mouth. Despite this, he played a century. In that match, India won the toss and decided to bat first. Gautam Gambhir returned to the pavilion after scoring 22 and Sachin Tendulkar 2 runs. Yuvi then took over the innings with Virat Kohli (59 runs). Both shared a 122-run partnership for the third wicket.

Yuvraj returned to the pavilion after scoring 113 runs. He hit 10 fours and 2 sixes in 123 balls. The Indian team was all out for 268 runs in 49.1 overs. In reply, the West Indies team could score only 188 runs. India won the match by 80 runs. Even in bowling, Yuvi showed amazing. He took 2 wickets for 18 runs in 4 overs. Yuvi returned the pavilion to Devon Thomas and explosive Andre Russell.
