Yuvraj Singh retires: Kohli, Tendulkar lead tributes


India’s World Cup 2011 and World T20 2007 hero Yuvraj Singh has announced retirement from International cricket. Yuvi scored 8701 runs at an average of 36.55, studded with 14 centuries and 52 fifties in the 278 innings.

“I have been playing international cricket on and off for 17 years. Now, it is time to say goodbye, to move on and walk away. It has been a roller coaster ride and a great story but it has to come to an end,” said an emotional Yuvraj. “This is the best time to move on.”

Yuvraj got emotional and was trying hard to pause his tears in front of the people.

“It was a love-hate relationship with this game. I can’t explain what it really means to me. This game taught me to fight. I have failed more times than I succeeded and I will never give up,” he said.

People were grieved to mark their best-loved superstar leaving cricket and took to Twitter to post their tributes and show their love to India’s 2011 World Cup-winning star.
