    India all-rounder Yuvraj Singh has retired from all forms of cricket. He announced his retirement in Mumbai today. Yuvraj, 37, was player of the tournament when India won the 2011 World Cup and played a key role in the World Twenty20 triumph in 2007. He was diagnosed with lung cancer in 2011 but returned after treatment. He played 40 Tests, 304 one-day internationals and 58 T20s.

    A  left-handed middle-order batsman and left-arm spinner, Yuvraj famously hit England bowler Stuart Broad for six sixes in an over at the 2007 World T20. He scored 8,701 runs at an average of 36.55 in ODIs with 14 hundred and 52 fifties and took 111 wickets at 38.68 apiece. His last appearance for India came in an ODI against West Indies in 2017. He was part of the victorious Mumbai Indians squad at this year’s Indian Premier League, playing four matches. He said the 2019 edition would be his last IPL.
