Yuvraj Singh The Fighter & Real Hero - Know Everything About Yuvraj Singh

Yuvraj Singh The Fighter & Real Hero
Yuvraj Singh is an Indian cricketer, and the son of former Indian fast bowler and Punjabi movie star Yograj Singh. He has been a member of the Indian cricket team since 2000 (ODIs) and played his first Test match in 2003.

He was recently diagnosed with a cancerous tumor (Stage-I) in his left lung and is undergoing chemotherapy treatment at the Cancer Research Institute in Boston, USA. On March 18, 2012 he was discharged from the hospital after completing the third and final cycle of chemotherapy to recover from a rare germ cell cancer in Boston, USA. On April 9, 2012 he returned home .

Yuvraj Singh was the vice-captain of the ODI team from late-2007 to late-2008. At the 2007 World Twenty20 he hit six sixes in an over against England's Stuart Broad-a feat performed only three times previously in any form of senior cricket, and previously never in an international match between two Test cricket nations. He was named the Man of the Tournament in the 2011 Cricket World Cup

After the 2003 World Cup, Yuvraj was signed by Yorkshire, becoming only the second Indian after Tendulkar to represent the county. However, he had a disappointing run, scoring less than 200 runs in either form of the game, but described it as an important learning experience.

He was the icon player and captain for Indian Premier League (IPL) team Kings XI Punjab in the first two seasons; in 2010, the third season, icon player status was abolished and the captaincy given to Kumar Sangakkara.

Yuvraj was signed by Microsoft to be a brand ambassador for the Xbox 360 video game console when it was launched in India in 2006. He appeared in advertisements for the console alongside Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar.

Codemasters' cricket video game Brian Lara International Cricket 2007 was released with his endorsement in India, titled "Yuvraj Singh International Cricket 2007."

The Bollywood animated film, Jumbo features cricketer Yuvraj Singh's voice therefore starting his career in Bollywood. The upcoming animated full length feature film Captain India features Yuvraj Singh as the main protagonist.

CARDIFF: After becoming the No. 1 Test and best T20 team in the world, England are now eyeing the 2015 World Cup. If the words of England batting consultant cum batting coach Graham Gooch are to be believed, the process has already begun.

He says the ODI battle against India in their backyard will also test the mettle of the England team. He revealed more during a brief chat with TOI.


How exciting is it to work with this England team?

I enjoy the challenge very much. As coach you have to connect with the players. Unless and until the players
are willing to listen to you, it's completely useless.

What is your impression about Duncan Fletcher?
Ask anyone in England about Fletcher and he will tell you how good he is as a coach. He had a very successful stint with the England team and I wish him all the best with India.
Despite being so big in stature in English cricket, how do you manage to strike a perfect working relationship with Andy Flower?
Andy had a 50-plus average in Test matches and was a fine player. I have been associated with him for a long time. I got him to Essex and have known him for years. Most importantly, I have been enjoying my stint with the England team.
What would be England's biggest challenge?
Our immediate challenge is to play and win the ODI series in India. I love that country. I also love the Eden Gardens in Kolkata. It's absolutely fantastic to play a cricket match there. During my playing days, I have always enjoyed being there. And I hope our team does well in those conditions. India may have lost the ODI series here, but they are a different side at home.
England are ranked No. 1 in Tests and are the current World Champions in T20. What's its next goal?
We have already started a process for the 2015 World Cup. We know that our World Cup performance earlier this year wasn't good. But for the next World Cup, our preparation has already started. There is a lot of talent in this country and we hope to do well with them. However, the current team also has a lot of promise. Their morale is high after doing well in the other two formats of the game.
Have you been impressed with any of the Indian players?
The young Indian team which is playing the ODI series against us is not that bad. They fought hard and showed a lot of promise. They missed some of the great players during the series due to injuries. Sachin Tendulkar for instance, but Rahul Dravid was fantastic this summer.
With so much cricket being played, do you think England can hold on to the No.1 Test spot for a long time?
We have the grit to stay right up there. India also did well to become No. 1 in the world. I am confident England are going to do well from here because beating the No. 1 team and then becoming the best team is not an easy job. Right now, we are not thinking much about Test cricket.

Cricket History Best Three Cricket Matches Ever


Year 1882, Test #9 : Australia got the better of England and beat them by seven runs at The Oval. Fred Spofforth took 14 wickets, and had there been Man of the Match award then, then he would have been the lone contender.

The Sporting Times published a mock obituary of English cricket and stated that the body will be cremated and the ashes be taken to Australia. Thus began a cricketing battle for the ages, which goes by the name of the Ashes.


Year 1981, Test #905 : Almost a hundred years since the famous Test that gave birth to the Ashes, came another gem of a match between the old rivals Australia and England. This time the venue was Headingley.

If former Australia captain Richie Benaud, who was then commentating for BBC television, is to be believed, then it was "One of the most fantastic victories ever known in Test cricket history."

English legend, Ian Botham came out to bat in England's second innings when they were five wickets down lagging behind Australia by 122 runs. He went on to make a magnificient 149 and thus Australia required only 130 runs to win the match.

But English fast bowler Bob Willis produced one of the best spells of fast bowling to take eight wickets for 43. As a result Australia lost by 18 runs.


Year 2001, Test #1535 Cricket lovers can accuse of being biased towards India for putting this one as the best match ever. But we have our own reasons. First, it involved an Australian team, that can be arguably called as the finest ever Test team. Second, it was up against an opposition that had the talent but somehow had never managed to put up a credible performance.

Third, India were just fresh from yet another mauling by Australians at Mumbai and the loss was enough to aggravate the psychological scars they had from the drubbing they had received from the Aussies in their recently concluded tour to Down Under. Fourth, they had lost a few good players to the match-fixing fiasco and needed to put up a good performance to show that those in the side were honest cricketers. There would be seldom be any other Test match with so much at stake, or if there has been any then we haven't seen that.

No words can do justice to what India did on the final three days of the second test against Australia at Eden Gardens. As another thrashing seemed imminent, Laxman and Dravid played probably the best innings of their life and Harbhajan bowled unbelievably well to give his side an improbable victory.

And if the reasons at the start of the match, coupled with the magnificent effort that both the sides put in was not enough to make the match the best ever, then here is another one. The victory not only brought to an end the invincible run of Steve Waugh's men but also ensured that India began to believe in their abilities and began what has been since then continuing as a golden run.
