One of India’s most celebrated cricketers, Yuvraj Singh turned 37 years today. The left-handed batsman has smashed more than 11000 runs across all formats in international cricket. With 17 hundreds and 71 half-centuries to his name, Yuvraj is renowned for his aggressive batting in the middle order. It has been more than a year since he last represented India. He may not be in line for the upcoming World Cup but his contribution to Indian cricket is unmatchable.

Regarded as one of the greatest limited overs batsmen that India has produced, Yuvraj was the Man of the Tournament in India’s World Cup winning campaign. The all-rounder scored 362 runs, took 15 wickets and won four Man of the Match awards. He also played an integral role in India’s WT20 triumph. His 70(30) propelled India to a victory against Australia in the semis. Yuvraj also hit six sixes to Stuart Broad in the same tournament which became a huge talking point then.

On the occasion of his birthday, all the cricketers right from Sourav Ganguly to Rohit Sharma showered their wishes. Harbhajan Singh with whom he has played since his Punjab days had a special wish for the cricketer. Alongside some Punjabi slangs, the off-spinner also posted some amazing pictures with him. Virender Sehwag also shared a picture of both of them sharing a laugh.

Yuvraj has fought battles not only inside the field but outside too. The cricketer was diagnosed with cancer just after the 2011 World Cup. He fought against it and came back to represent India again. Sachin Tendulkar highlighted the same as he wished the cricketer alongside a candid picture. Even his former teammates VVS Laxman and Mohammed Kaif took to Twitter to pour their wishes.
