2011 World Cup final, my most memorable moment in cricketing career: Yuvraj Singh

He talked about his most memorable innings of his life. The first test hundred in Lahore in 2004, The Natwest final in 2002, England Test Series in 2007, 6 sixes in 2007 World-Cup, and the most memorable was winning the World Cup final for India in 2011 are the instances he brought in his speech.

Yuvraj hit his highest score in ODIs against England after the comeback in 2017.

He also talked about his bad experiences at the International level.

He added, he thought that his career was finished but he went to basics and scored lots of runs in domestic cricket which first brought him in the t20s and then in the ODI. He registered his highest score of 150 in ODIs against England in 2017.
