An impressive first appearance on the international scene
Yuvraj Singh made his debut for India at the age of 18 against Kenya in the ICC Knockout Trophy in 2000 in Nairobi. However, he didn’t get to bat in his debut match and couldn’t pick any wicket in four overs. However, in the next match against Australia in the quarter-finals of the tournament, Yuvraj Singh showed the world the enormous talent he had.
India had gotten a good start thanks to the early assault by Ganguly and Tendulkar, but the main man to take India to a competitive total was Yuvraj, who scored an entertaining 84 in 80 balls with 12 fours and faced the likes of Glenn McGrath, who was in his prime and a young and superfast Brett Lee with ease and hit some amazing strokes.
Yuvraj Singh had arrived on the international scene.
