BREAKING: Yuvraj Singh announces retirement from International cricket


India’s 2011 World Cup hero Yuvraj Singh has announced his retirement from International Cricket.

Speaking to the media at a plush South Mumbai hotel on Monday, Yuvraj Singh confirmed the speculations on his retirement.

“After 25 years in and around the 22 yards and almost 17 years of international cricket on and off, I have decided to move on. This game taught me how to fight, how to fall, to dust off, to get up again and move forward,” said Yuvraj.

Considered to be one of India’s greatest limited overs cricketers, Yuvraj had been seriously contemplating retirement from international cricket and pursue a freelance career in ICC approved foreign Twenty20 leagues.
