Yuvraj was known for his belligerent batting in his career. In 2007, he smashed Stuart Broad for six sixes in an over during a T20 World Cup match against England at the Kingsmead in Durban. In that game, he also managed to notch the fastest T20I fifty off 12 balls. In T20 cricket, only Chris Gayle has equalled the record while playing for the Melbourne Renegades in the Big Bash League (BBL).
Yuvraj also became the Player of the Tournament in the 2011 World Cup at home. He scored a century against the West Indies and also dismissed Sri Lanka captain Kumar Sangakkara in the final at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. Then he beat cancer and returned to the national side.
In 2017, he played international cricket for the last time and hung his boots from cricket in 2019. In the last 12 months, he played in the Global T20 Canada, the Abu Dhabi T10 league and Bushfire Bash Cricket appeal match earlier this year.
