Here are the 7 Most memorable performances by Yuvraj Singh:
1. Natwest Series Final: 69 v England:
The score might not seem to be a big one, but the stage was the biggest for a young Yuvraj Singh. India had a stiff task ahead of them as the English team posted 325 riding on centuries from Nasser Hussain and Marcus Trescothick. India were stuttering at 146/5 by the end of 24 overs when Mohammad Kaif joined Yuvraj at the crease. The pair initially stabilised the innings and later scored at a brisk rate. They shared a partnership of 121 runs for the 6th wicket which came to an end when Yuvraj was dismissed for 69 (63 balls) as he top-edged a sweep shot in the 42nd over off the bowling of Paul Collingwood giving a simple catch to Alex Tudor at short fine leg. The damage was however done and India won the match by 2 wickets eventually.
