Yuvi has played for a number of IPL teams before and helped Sunrisers Hyderabad win their first title. He learned to play cricket very quickly because his father used to play cricket for India. He quickly made it to the national team.

When he was diagnosed with cancer, his career came to an abrupt end. However, he fought the disease valiantly and made a strong return to cricket, which he wrote about in his autobiography, “The Test of My Life.” His organization, “YouWeCan,” has helped tens of thousands of people with cancer over the years.

Growing up and early life
The Indian couple Yograj Singh and Shabnam Singh had a son named Yuvraj Singh on December 12, 1981. His dad was an Indian fast bowler who played cricket for India in international games. He chose to live with his mother after his parents split up.
Singh went to Chandigarh’s DAV Public School and learned how to play cricket with his dad. He could play tennis and roller skate well too. But when he won the National Under-14 Roller Skating Championship, his father supposedly threw away the medal and told him to focus on cricket instead.
Yuvraj Singh played his first game for Punjab Under-16s in 1995–95, a month before he turned 14. The next season, he was moved up to the U19 team, and in 1997–98, he played his first game in the Ranji Trophy. In the 1999 Cooch Behar Trophy Final, he made 358 runs against Bihar’s first innings score of 357. In the 2000 Under-19 Cricket World Cup, he won “Player of the Tournament.”
Because of how well he played in all areas for the U-19 team, he was called up to the Indian team for the 2000 ICC KnockOut Trophy. On October 3, 2000, he played his first ODI against Kenya. The “Man of the Match” award went to him for hitting 84 against Australia and 41 and taking one wicket against South Africa. However, he was dropped after a bad showing in the next Tri Series.
In the 2001 Coca-Cola Cup, he won a match and made 98 runs without being out. He also took 8 wickets in the whole series against Sri Lanka. He lost his shape and was taken out of the Indian team. Singh played cricket again in his own country and got 209 in the Duleep Trophy in March 2002. He was called up to the national team when India was down 1-2 in a one-day series against Zimbabwe. In the last two games, he scored 80 runs without being out and 75 runs to win the games.
Then he had another bad series against the West Indies. But in the 2002 NatWest Series against England and Sri Lanka, he was consistent with both the bat and the ball. In the final match against England, he made 69 runs and put together a 121-run partnership with Mohammad Kaif to help India beat England by 326 runs. It was one of India’s best ODI wins ever.
Before the 2003 ICC Cricket World Cup, he got a few quick fifties that helped India win games. On April 11, 2003, against Bangladesh, he scored his first century. After Sachin Tendulkar, he was the second Indian cricket player to play for the Yorkshire County Cricket Club. They signed him in May 2003.
He played his first Test match against New Zealand on October 16, 2003, but didn’t do well. He also didn’t do well in the Test the next TVS Cup ODI tri-series. Yuvraj Singh got back to his old self in the tri-series against Australia and Zimbabwe, where he scored 314 runs. After a bad ODI series against Pakistan, he scored his first century and half-century in the Test series.
His form slowly got worse in both ODI and Test matches toward the end of 2004, but he scored the most runs for India in the 2005 Indian Oil Cup triangular series in the middle of that year. In the years that followed, he kept up his good form and scored six hundreds in ODIs and two hundreds in Tests. He also had many fifty-plus runs that helped India get back on track after a bad start.
In September 2007, he was named vice-captain of the Indian team for the first ICC World Twenty20, which took place in South Africa. He made the tournament memorable by hitting six sixes off of Stuart Broad in one over. After that, he was made vice-captain of the ODI team as well. He then had a good series against Pakistan, hitting four fifties in ODIs and his career-high 169 in Tests.
He had his best tournament at the 2011 ICC Cricket World Cup, where he made 362 runs (one hundred and four fifties) and took 15 wickets, which earned him Player of the Tournament honors. Yuvraj was soon told, though, that he had a stage-1 lung tumor and had to go through months of treatment before he could play again in September 2012 for the ICC World Twenty20.
During the World Twenty20, he took the most wickets, but he didn’t do well with the bat. He also didn’t make the most of his chances in Tests and limited-over games, except for a few fifties. But he was called back for the 2014 World Twenty20, where he formed several strong partnerships.
He wasn’t picked for the 2015 Cricket World Cup, but after a great performance in the Vijay Hazare Trophy, he was brought back to the T20 team for India’s tour of Australia in January 2016. He was chosen for the ODI series against England in January 2017 after scoring 672 runs in five games in the Ranji Trophy. His 150 runs in the first game earned him the “Player of the Match” award.
Yuvraj Singh started the IPL as a star player for Kings XI Punjab. In May 2009, he scored his first T20 hat-trick against Royal Challengers Bangalore, and that same month, he scored another one against Deccan Chargers. In the following seasons, he played for a number of different teams. However, he had the most success with Sunrisers Hyderabad, who won the league that year.
