Yuvraj Singh decided to hang up his boots from international cricket on Monday. He was out of the national side since June 2017 and with age not on his side, the left-hander had no chance of making it back to the Indian team. Yuvraj held a press conference in Mumbai on Monday and expressed that it is time to move on during an emotional speech. The wishes flooded in for him on social media since then as the cricketing fraternity along with the fans thanked the southpaw for his contribution to Indian cricket.

Yuvraj Singh is the World Cup hero for India. He was a vital cog of the team during India’s triumph in the World T20 2007 and then won the Man of the tournament award in World Cup 2011 which the Men in Blue won. But a career-threatening illness kept him out of the field for a long time post the mega event. However, after winning the battle with life and regaining the fitness, Yuvi made a stunning comeback on the field to revive his career.

Yuvraj in full flow with the bat was a treat to watch for everyone and the cricketer-turned-commentator Sanjay Manjrekar listed down some of the 37-year-old’s qualities in his tweet while wishing him a happy retirement.

“Yuvraj Singh – 1) All time great one day batsman. 2) Batsman with the greatest bat swing ever. 3) Most impressive International debut I have seen from an Indian batsman. 4) A very selfless batsman. Enjoy your second innings Yuvi! #YuvrajSingh,” Manjrekar’s tweet read.

Yuvraj’s hilarious reply

Yuvraj Singh, since announcing his retirement, has been busy responding all the former and current cricketers who wished him on Twitter. In a friendly reply, the all-rounder indirectly trolled Sanjay Manjrekar over his commentary stating, “Thanks Sanjay I’m sure some time critics get the best out of you! Cheers.” Sanjay Manjrekar is more often than not is targetted by many for his commentary. Even during the Indian Premier League (IPL) and now in the World Cup, the Twitterati has been irked with his commentary.
