It’s been a day and half since he announced his retirement to the international cricket but we still couldn’t believe that he did, It doesn’t matter if he’s in form or struggling with the bat, People loved watching his game every single time he’s walked into the crease. Every milestone he’s achieved; could be those man of the tournaments, 6 sixes , fastest 50, throwback 150 and much more.. It’s never easy for any batsman in the world to achieve.
<He’s the only one player who fought everyone, the opponents, the odds, the situations, and his own self, the inspiration of millions.
His fluent bat swing, natural playing techniques, and the perfect shot selection ability made him look invincible. He’s an excellent batsman, an occasional bowler and an extraordinary human being. He is a warrior and artist who painted several beautiful chapters of life not only for himself but for the entire country, he fought like a warrior in his not so easy childhood and defeated the most life-threatening disease cancer. The colours he has sprinkled in his 37 years of life have not only brightened him and his near ones, rather have brought incredible extravagance to the entire country.
From making it possible to win the Under-15 world cup, U-19 World cup, T-20 World cup, he brought back home 2011 Cricket World Cup home, which was a 28years old dream. Yuvraj bagged the man of the series in above all the tournaments. During the 2011 CWC he was detected with cancer, vomited blood, felt restless still played for the country as the most significant player. Imagine, only a legend in true sense can do this. Yuvraj even made a come back after defeating cancer and people were more than glad to see him bat again. The energy, enthusiasm he have is mind-blowing. People have learned a lot from him and will keep learning. His retirement from the game doesn’t mark his retirement from any Indian’s heart, people owe him a lot of love and respect.
