Looking back at Yuvraj Singh's last match in every format
India's greatest white ball cricketer, Yuvraj Singh has decided to retire from all forms of cricket meaning that the match against Chennai Super Kings on 3rd April 2019 was his last appearance on the cricket field. Imran Tahir was the man who picked his wicket that night at the Wankhede Stadium as the warrior Yuvraj did not get a chance to play after that fixture.
Co-incidentally, Yuvraj Singh's last cricket match took place at the same venue where the biggest moment of his cricket career transpired, the 2011 Cricket World Cup triumph. Singh had won the man of the tournament award that year only to never return to the World Cup.
Though Yuvraj Singh played his final IPL match in 2019, his last international match came in the year 2017. In this article, we will have a look at Yuvraj Singh's last game in every format -
Test - India vs England, Kolkata, 16-20 October 2012
Known to be a prolific player in the limited overs format, Yuvraj Singh was not so successful in Test cricket. Singh made his Test debut in October 2003 against New Zealand. From 2003 to 2012, the Punjabi player represented India in 40 Test matches before he was dropped from the squad.
In the 40 Test matches he played, the all-rounder scored 1,900 runs at an average of 33.22. His knock of 169 against Pakistan at Bengaluru was the highlight of his career. With his left-arm spin, Singh scalped 9 wickets in Test matches.
