Yuvi made India’s victory an epic one at Lord’s in 2002 .He being an important and fabulous one led the World Cup conquest in 2011, Yuvraj Singh will undeniably go down in the history books as one of the most prolific batting all-rounders to have graced Indian cricket.
In his successful career of 189 years, Yuvi victoriously carried out his responsibilities being one of the important part of Indian cricket team .He did bring laurels to the team and always been admired by everyone.
When he got retirement,his fans were into a state of mourning, bringing the curtain down on his international career also gave him an opportunity to finally break the silence on his mistreatment at the hands of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI). Despite his contribution to Indian cricket, the BCCI robbed Yuvi off his farewell game
The left handed batsman quoted : “Mujhe bola gaya tha agar aapse ‘Yo-Yo’ test pass nahi hota toh aap retirement match khel sakate ho (I was told that if you are not able to pass the ‘Yo-Yo’ test, I would get a farewell game),” he was too emotional while the press conference held in Mumbai.
Further he asserted :
“I did not tell anyone in BCCI that I have to play the last match. Agar main accha tha, potential tha toh main ground pe se chale jaata. (If I was good enough, I would have retired from the ground). Aur mujhe is tarha ki cricket khelna pasand nahi hai, ki mujhe ek match chahiye (I don’t like to ask for a game, I have never played the game with that mindset),”
Recently, cricketers and fans have been busy celebrating the election of Sourav Ganguly as the new BCCI president. As Ganguly gears up to begin his reign as the BCCI chief from 23rd October, wishes and congratulatory messages continue to pour in from all corners of the world for the former Indian captain.
In response, Ganguly wrote: “Thank u the best..u have won India world cups..time to do good things for the game now..u r my super star..god bless always”. They both share a special bond.
