Top 5 moments from the career of the amazing Yuvraj Singh

Yuvraj Singh announced his retirement from international cricket on June 10.

Final great innings of international career vs England at home

Yuvraj Singh hit his highest ODI score of 150 in Cuttack vs England | ReutersYuvraj Singh battled cancer and made numerous comebacks to the Indian team. The cancer treatment and subsequent rehab had taken a toll on his fitness, which never got back to his pre-cancer days and was even blamed for his slow innings in the 2014 World T20 finals, that cost India the trophy.

However, he had one of his best years in 2017 and played one of the best ODI innings, at home against England in an ODI. He scored his highest score in 50-over international cricket- 150 at Cuttack and along with old friend MS Dhoni (134) added 256 runs for the fourth wicket to take India to 381 runs.

This century proved to be his last in ODI cricket and though he made one more memorable fifty against Pakistan in the 2017 ICC Champions Trophy; failure to score in rest of the tournament and on the subsequent tour of West Indies and dodgy fitness closed doors on his return to Indian team permanently.
