The cricketer, who helped India to end a long 28-year wait for the World Cup, smashed six sixes in an over off England's Stuart Broad in the maiden T20 World Cup, helping India to win the T20 championships, his first Test hundred, against Pakistan in Lahore in 2004 and the 2002 NatWest series final, as the four moments which he chose as his best moments in his international career that lasted 17 years (2000-2017).

He was diagnosed with cancer in 2011-12 in America.

He last played for India in ODI and T20 in 2017, while he wore whites for the last time in 2012.

In IPL, in the last edition of the tournament, he played for Mumbai Indians, who won the championships.

During his post cancer life, he endured a four-year lay-off between 2013 and 2017, Yuvraj made another comeback - this time in the home series against England in 2017 in Virat Kohli's first as full-time captain.
