Summary

  • More than two months after playing his last competitive match, Yuvraj Singh has announced his retirement from all international cricket and IPL.
  • Being player of the tournament in that World Cup was an icing on the cake which Yuvraj describes as the biggest moment of his career.
  • I want to dedicate my life for improvement of society in terms of cancer and cricket, inspiring people through my journey, Yuvraj said.
