Yuvraj Singh, the currently discarded Indian batsman, has been awarded the special honour as he has received the award for being the most inspiring icon of the year award for his tremendous and ever-growing noble social welfare work.
Yuvraj was showered with this hugely respect-worthy award at the Dadasaheb Phalke International Film Festival (DPIFF) for his immense charity work through various society serving organizations. Yuvraj who was himself diagnosed and recovered from cancer in 2012, has his own foundation 'YouWeCan' that focuses on creating cancer awareness and helping educate the cancer survivors kids. There is a reason why Yuvraj is one of the most lovable Indian Cricketer to have played our sport.
Yuvraj, one of India's greatest limited-overs cricket match-winner, has been going through a huge dip in form and is struggling for runs right now in the twilight phase of his career, it is not something he experienced much in his prime. But, Yuvraj is a legend and an inspiration.
He played for Kings XI Punjab in the recently concluded Indian Premier League where he went through a very tough phase and a dry reign of runs, where he could only manage 65 runs in eight matches with an average of 10.83.
Yuvraj talking about playing alongside some exceptional players in the Kings XI Punjab set up, recently said, "We have a different comfort level and, all in all, a much better equation as players of the game. Obviously when we don the national colours, we are all playing for our country and that is the passion that drives us to give it our best,"
