Yuvraj Singh, the former Indian cricketer celebrated his 38th birthday on Friday. On his special day, he was poured with blessings from every nook and corner of the world. Cricketing fraternity also came out on social media to wish the former World Cup-winning all-rounder. Meanwhile, Rohit Sharma shared a throwback video for his former Mumbai Indians teammate and wished him in ‘Gully Boy’ style.
The 38-year-old is regarded as one of the best all-rounders that India ever produced in its cricket history. He played an important role in Team India’s triumph to World Cup 2011 and emerged ‘Man of the Tournament’ in the marquee event as well.
Rohit Sharma shares a throwback video
On the occasion of Yuvraj Singh’s 38th birthday, Rohit Sharma took to his Instagram handle and shared a throwback video with the former World Cup-winning player when they were playing together for Mumbai Indians in IPL.
In that clip, Rohit can be seen singing a popular song from the blockbuster Bollywood movie “Gully Boy” and Yuvraj Singh flaunts his fascinating dance moves. The Indian Hitman also gave a heartwarming caption to it that read, “Happy birthday to the man with the moves on and off the field @yuvisofficial 😏,”
Yuvraj Singh bid adieu to international cricket earlier this year after getting ignored by the selectors for long. His career was full of ups and downs. The left-handed all-rounder was in the best form of his career just when he was hit with cancer, sidelining him away from cricket for more than a year.
Many thought that his career was over but he marked his return back into the international circuit with a fighting spirit. However, he couldn’t prolong his career as he was overlooked by the team management for a long period. But Yuvi still plays for different teams across various tournaments. Recently, he played for Maratha Arabians in the T10 league held in Dubai.
Yuvraj is the only player across the globe to have smashed six sixes in an over in the T20 World Cup. He played 40 Tests, 304 ODIs and 58 T20Is in which he mustered more than 10,000 international runs with 17 tons and 71 half-centuries. He also took 148 wickets during his stint in international cricket.
