Yuvraj Singh has called time on his worldwide - as well as IPL - career, finishing up after 40 Tests, 304 ODIs and 58 T20Is in which he established himself as the best Indian allrounder of his generation - an explosive batsman, useful slow left-arm bowler and dynamic fielder.

Indian National Cricket Team's 2011 World Cup hero Yuvraj Singh made a decision to bid farewell to cricket on June 10 (Monday) after an 18-year long fighting career.

Yuvraj has 8,701 runs and 111 wickets to his name in ODIs, with 1,177 runs and 28 wickets in T20Is and is known to be one of the greatest limited over Cricket players for India.

India all-rounder Yuvraj Singh, who once bludgeoned Stuart Broad for six sixes in an over, has announced his retirement from worldwide cricket.

His national team is now partaking in the 2019 edition of the Cricket World Cup. He has played with the same passion all these years. "Love you brotherman You deserved a better send off. @YUVSTRONG12", Rohit Sharma tweeted. "He has been an inspiration both on and off the field and given so much joy to millions of fans the world over", International Cricket Council (ICC) Chief Executive Manu Sawhney said in a statement.

Mali: Nearly 100 die in attack on Dogon village
Almost 100 people were killed by gunmen in an overnight massacre in a Mali village, amid a wave of violence linked to jihadists. There have been numerous attacks in Mali in recent months, some ethnically driven, some carried out by jihadist groups.

The 37-year-old was diagnosed with mediastinal seminoma, a germ-cell tumour located between his two lungs immediately after the 2011 World Cup, but made a return to global cricket and also established a cancer foundation.

That was one of the highlights of his career, Yuvraj said, along with scoring his first test century against Pakistan at Lahore in 2004 and the 2011 World Cup triumph.

After getting the news of Yuvraj's retirement, Team India vice-captain Rohit Sharma posted a heartfelt message for the elegant southpaw, tweeting: "You don't know what you got till its gone".

Yuvraj too replied saying "You know how I feel inside!" We would visit hospitals and get his test done alone and it was after a month that his friends and fellow cricketers visited him. You made memories on the field and off which we as Indian fans shall always cherish. "Cricket has given me everything and that's why I am standing here", he said after being reduced to tears by a video of the highlights of his career. Meanwhile, the Indian cricketing great will continue to play domestically in the national leagues.

Yuvraj came into India's One-day International (ODI) team in October 2000 during the ICC knockout tournament in Nairobi. The left-handed batsman played in 132 matches in his IPL career and scored 2,750 runs and took 36 wickets. I didn't need a match. I want to enjoy my life.
