The hallmarked career of celebrated Indian Cricketer Yuvraj Singh remains incomplete without highlighting his smashing performance within the 2007 ICC T-20 World Cup in South Africa.
His knock of six-sixes in an over are etched within the collective memory of Indians ever since, which single inning against England even goes on to foreshadow Yuvi’s ‘Man of the Tournament’ run-up with bat and ball until MS Dhoni’s winning moment in Wankhede in 2011 ICC World Cup.
In a recent interview, Yuvraj, while opening abreast of the treatment administered to him and other seniors by BCCI when it came to their retirement towards the top of their careers after formidable International Cricket careers.
“Giving someone a farewell, that’s not on behalf of me to make a decision. It’s up to the BCCI. But I felt the way that they managed me towards the top of my career, was very unprofessional,” Yuvraj told SportsKeeda.
“But looking back at a number of the good players from India – Harbhajan, Sehwag, Zaheer Khan – were also badly mismanaged. it’s a part of Indian cricket, I even have seen that within the past so I wasn’t really surprised,” he added
Rohit Sharma played the foremost important knock of T-20 World Cup
Yuvraj said that within the T-20 World Cup final against Pakistan, Gautam Gambhir’s and Yuvraj’s knocks only, while Rohit Sharma’s crucial 27 runs knock is ignored.
“Everyone talks about myself or Gautam but nobody remembers that Rohit scored 36 off 18 or 20 balls within the final, which got us to 160. That was the foremost important knock of the tournament. Irfan took 3 wickets and was the person of the Match but I feel Rohit’s inning was very special within the finals,” said Yuvraj.
