Yuvraj Singh on Monday announced retirement from international cricket. “After 25 years, I have decided to move on. Cricket has given me everything and is the reason why I stand here today,” the 37-year-old Yuvraj said addressing the media here.“I was extremely lucky to play 400 games for India. I could have never imagined it when I first started playing cricket,” he added.

Yuvraj played 40 Tests, 304 ODIs and 58 T20Is for India. He put together 1900 runs in the longest format, and 8701 in the one-dayers, the format in which he enjoyed most success. He is one of main reasons for India’s World Cup win in 2011.

His 6 sixes in the T-20 World Cup T-20 after his fight with Flintoff is still a wonderful memory. The battle with cancer soon after the 2011 World Cup triumph was perhaps the biggest challenge that he encountered and he came back like a true fighter. I love the sport but I also hate the sport. I love the sport because it has given everything to me. I hate it because the game has been very tough on me mentally, Yuvraj Singh said in a video played just before the announcement
