Yuvraj Singh can be deemed as one of the greatest all-rounders India have ever produced. After making his debut in 2000 under Sourav Ganguly’s captaincy, the southpaw surged ahead with passion and dignity. As days passed by, Yuvraj kept growing stature. In India’s tour of Australia in 2003-04, Yuvraj also slammed a century against the hosts in a tri-nation ODI series.
Then in the 2007 T20 World Cup, he got the fastest half-century in T20Is off a mere 12 balls. At the Kingsmead in Durban, he deposited England pacer Stuart Broad for six sixes in a single over. Later, Chris Gayle equalled the record for the fastest fifty in T20s, but the T20I record remains intact for the southpaw. He was also one of India’s star performers in the 2011 World Cup.
He became the Player of the Tournament even as India won the mega event after 28 years under MS Dhoni’s leadership. Thereafter, he fought successfully against cancer and made his national comeback. However, after the 2017 tour of the West Indies, he didn’t get to don the national jersey again. Last year, the now 38-year-old southpaw hung his boots from international cricket.
In the meantime, Yuvraj uploaded a split-image with his younger and older self. He captioned the picture and wrote, “Well nothing much seems to have changed except the beard! Same innocence on the face and decent looks too. What do you feel?”
Here’s Yuvraj Singh’s post
Harbhajan Singh, Yuvraj’s former India teammate, didn’t miss out on trolling the Punjab-born. The veteran replied to Yuvraj and wrote, “R u sure paji just the beard??”.
Here’s Harbhajan’s reply
Harbhajan was also a match-winner for India across formats. He is the first Indian bowler to pick up a hat-trick in Test cricket when he accomplished the feat against Australia in 2001 at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata. He was also a part of the squad in the 2007 T20 WC and the 50-overs WC four years later.
But after the 2016 Asia Cup in Bangladesh, Harbhajan lost his place, maybe once and for all. Nevertheless, he continues to be a part of the Chennai Super Kings, captained by Dhoni, in the cash-rich Indian Premier League (IPL).
