Former Indian skipper and veteran Mithali Raj’s biopic has recently hit the cinema houses. Over the years, biopics of several Indian cricketers including Sachin Tendulkar, Mohammad Azharuddin, and MS Dhoni have shown some different angles of these cricketers’ lives.

Biopics are also a good source of income for the entertainment industry and have at least got a stable profit from their investments. On that note, let us take a look at five players whose biopic might touch everyone’s heart due to their struggling stories, but still, they beat all the odds and came on top in the international arena.

Here’s a look at five such players whose biopic would be a treat to watch for everyone:

1. Yuvraj Singh (India)

One of the most dangerous left-handed batters to ever represent India, Yuvraj Singh was a class apart. Born in Chandigarh, Yuvraj soon made a name for himself in the domestic arena. The left-handed batter was also named player of the tournament during the 2000 Under-19 World Cup won by India.

In 2002, Yuvraj played one of his finest knocks under pressure against England during a series decider at Lords. The left-handed batter smashed 69 off 63 balls and helped his side to a famous series victory on English soil. In the 2007 T20 World Cup, Yuvraj stitched history after he smashed Stuart Broad for six maximums in an over and helped his side to win that game. Team India also went on to win that inaugural T20World Cup.

However, Yuvraj’s best was seen during the 2011 World Cup as he was adjudged player of the tournament while India lifted their second 50-over World Cup. Later it came to know that he was battling a cancerous tumour in his left lung while he was playing in the World Cup tournament. Later on, he underwent chemotherapy in Boston and made a comeback to the Indian side.
