Yuvraj Singh

From Cricket to Cancer and Back


Yuvraj Singh, an all-rounder cricketer, a style icon & a true fighter, is known for bringing many victories & laurels for the country. His journey- on & off the field- is inspiring & a story of relentless perseverance. 

He rose to fame after the ICC Knockout Trophy in the year 2000, where batting in his second match against Australia, he scored a match-winning 84, impressed one & all with his superb fielding, and went on to win the Man of the Match award. 

In a match against England at the 2007 World Twenty20, he hit six sixes in one over - a feat achieved only three times previously in any form of senior cricket, & never in an international match between two Test cricket teams. In the same match, he set the record for the fastest fifty in Twenty20 Internationals & in all Twenty20 cricket, reaching 50 runs in 12 balls.

He was the vice-captain of the Indian ODI team (2007-2008). He was one of the top performers at the 2007 ICC World Twenty20, and the Man of the Tournament in the 2011 ICC Cricket World Cup, both of which India won.

During the 2011 World Cup, he became the first player to take a 5-wicket haul & score a 50 in the same World Cup match.

In 2011, Yuvraj was diagnosed with Cancer. After a gruelling year of treatment, he fought back & made his international comeback in a Twenty20 match against New Zealand shortly before the 2012 World Twenty20. He marked his comeback with a great start & ended up being the highest wicket taker for India in the tournament.

After Sachin Tendulkar he is the only cricketer signed by the English County team Yorkshire.
