India as a country can go to the level of absolute bonkers for 2 things, films and cricket. Over the years, both the fields have seen greats from India. From the world of cinema, we have had Dilip Kumar, Amitabh Bachchan, Dharmendra, Jitendra, Shah Rukh Khan, Salman Khan, Aamir Khan, Akshay Kumar and Ajay Devgn while from cricket we have had greats like Kapil Dev, Sunil Gavaskar, Sachin Tendulkar, Sourav Ganguly, Rahul Dravid, Anil Kumble, Yuvraj Singh, M.S Dhoni and Virat Kohli.
Both the fields go at par with respect to fandom and people from both the fields have immense respect for the people of the other field. That’s why you see M.S Dhoni attending screenings of Salman Khan movies while Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif coming to the cricket studios to promote their film.
So whenever anyone retires or quits working in their respective field, good wishes keep coming in from all ends and today the person who is at the receiving end of all this is none other than star Indian cricketer Yuvraj Singh who announced his retirement from International Cricket today.
Yuvraj Singh who was first picked up by Sourav Ganguly in the ODI series made it big into the field as he eventually became the only player to hit six 6’s in an over in an International cricket match. With stunning performances over the years, Yuvi (Yuvraj) has etched his name forever in the history of Indian Cricket.
As Yuvraj bid adieu to cricket today, Bollywood poured in wishes in great numbers for the talented cricketer!
