THAT’S END OF AN ERA
With you it is a farewell to the team that ganguly built, the team that garnered a religious following from the youngsters of our generation and to the cricket from our childhood.”
Right now when yuvi has announced his retirement we have a montage of shots running in our mind, like we can literally remember that match in Sydney in 2004 with 139 runs with your glorious sixes, that was definitely a great revenge for the 2003 World Cup finals which we lost.
These word of Yuvraj “This game taught me how to fight, how to fall, to dust off, to get up again and move forward,” he said at a press conference in Mumbai. I was extremely lucky to play 400 games for India. I could have never imagined it when I first started playing cricket” It’s been a love-hate relationship.”
Yuvraj, who played the last of his 304 one-day internationals two years ago, was a key cog in India’s World Twenty20 triumph in 2007 and was player-of-the-tournament at the World Cup four years later.
In his heyday, Yuvraj was one of the cleanest strikers of the ball in the game — as England’s Stuart Broad discovered when he was bludgeoned for six sixes in one over during the 2007 World Twenty20.
He was part of the victorious 2019 Mumbai Indians squad in the Indian Premier League, the most glamorous and cash-rich T20 league in the world, but played in only four matches during the campaign.
Yuvraj made an emotional return to the game in 2012 after a lengthy fight with a rare germ cell cancer in his lungs and played the last of his 40 tests that same year.
He scored 1,900 runs in the longest format of the game with three hundred and 11 half-centuries.
