India tour of West Indies 2017: Is this the last time we have seen Yuvraj Singh in Indian colours?
After making his debut for India in the year 2000, Yuvraj Singh has been a match-winner in the limited-overs format and has done exceptionally well over the years. He was one of the biggest reasons why India lifted the ICC ODI World Cup 2011.
He was diagnosed with cancer right after the ICC event that year and since his return after overcoming the disease, Yuvi has been a shadow of his past as the southpaw has found it really hard to cope with the demands of the game.
The dashing all-rounder has been in and out of the Indian team and struggled to get going whenever he got a chance to represent the Men in Blue. But, he was once given a chance in the team earlier this year, which he made full use of by scoring 150 against England and hence was picked for the ICC Champions Trophy and the West Indies tour.
In the ICC event, he also scored a match-winning half-century against Pakistan before struggling to get going against Sri Lanka and Pakistan in the final.
His batting powers have diminished and he hardly rolls his arms over. Adding to this, he has been poor on the field, something you generally didn’t associate with Yuvraj in the past. To be fair, he is 35 years old at the moment and one cannot expect him to throw himself on the field. It is safe to say that the age-factor has caught up with his batting as well.
Yuvraj has suffered a lot in his life. He will do make a comeback. One should not forget that what Indian skipper Virat Kohli is playing right now, Yuvi has played that part already for his side.
