Yuvraj Singh’s life is an inspiration to every person in the world. One of the most talented limited overs players in history of cricket, Yuvraj Singh has been called the greatest ODI player of India after Sachin Tendulkar.
Yuvraj Singh has achieved things that can make a great highlight reel when put together. He hit six sixes in an over in a T20I match against England during the World T20 in 2007 and played a scintillating innings against Australia in the semi-finals of the tournament which India won by beating Pakistan in the finals.
He won the Man of the tournament in 2011 World Cup, leading India to the World Cup title again after 28 years. India defeated Sri Lanka in the finals and Yuvraj was present at the non-striker end, as MS Dhoni hit that famous six to make India World champions in their own backyard in the Wankhede Stadium.
And he did it all the while suffering from an illness and vomiting blood. The illness was later diagnosed as cancer on his left lung.
Yuvraj Singh took a break from cricket to take treatment for the cancer at the Cancer Research Institute in Boston, United States as well as the Indiana University Melvin & Bren Simon Cancer Center in Indianapolis, Indiana.
Yuvraj Singh recently shared an emotional moment of his comeback match after defeating cancer. Yuvraj made his comeback in the T20I series against New Zealand in 2012 and after the first T20I was rained out in Vizag, Yuvraj hit 34 runs in 26 balls with 2 sixes and 1 four in the second T20I at Chennai, a match that India lost by one run.
Yuvraj Singh shared a ticket from his comeback match at Vizag in 2012 against New Zealand.
