Indian legend announces his retirement from international cricket
Indian all-rounder Yuvraj Singh announced his retirement from international cricket on Monday.
“After 25 years, I have decided to move on. Cricket has given me everything and is the reason why I stand here today,” stated Singh in his announcement. “I was extremely lucky to play 400 games for India. I could have never imagined it when I first started playing cricket.”
“It was a love-hate relationship with this game. I can’t explain what it really means to me. This game has taught me to fight. I have failed more times than I succeeded, and I will never give up,” continued Singh.
The left-handed batsman ended his international career with 40 Tests, 304 ODIs, and 58 T20I matches for India. All the while he had established a name for himself in Indian cricket history with his successes. This included his team’s 2011 ICC Cricket World Cup triumph where he got four half-centuries, a ton, and picked 15 wickets. Singh was named the player of the tournament.
However, Singh stated that he will continue playing in ICC approved foreign leagues.
India currently has odds of +245 in winning the entire ICC Cricket World Cup tournament.
