Veteran India batsman and two-time World Cup winner <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/yuvraj-singh/">Yuvraj Singh</a> has announced his retirement from international cricket on Monday. <p></p> <p></p>"Only if I could articulate what Cricket has done for me, to me! But let me tell you this, Cricket has given me everything I have and it is the reason why I sit here today," an emotional Yuvraj said during a media interaction in Mumbai on Monday. <p></p> <p></p><strong>Yuvraj Singh: <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/articles/yuvraj-singh-12-facts-you-should-know-about-the-man-who-cheated-death-and-bounced-back-497549">12 facts you should know</a></strong> <p></p> <p></p>Yuvraj, who last played for <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/teams/india/">India</a> in June 2017 in an ODI against West Indies, had been contemplating bringing down curtains on a highly successful international career for some time. During his 19-year stint in international cricket, he won two World Cups the inaugural ICC World T20 in 2007 and then ODI World Cup in 2011. <p></p> <p></p>The 37-year-old Yuvraj was the man-of-the-tournament as India lifted the 50-over World Cup for the second time becoming the first team to do so at home beating Sri Lanka in final at the Wankhede Stadium. <p></p> <p></p>Having made his India debut at the tender age of 18 during the 2000 ICC KnockOut tournament in Kenya, Yuvraj announced himself with a match-winning 84 against Australia in the quarter-final clash in only his second ODI. <p></p> <p></p>[caption id="attachment_854838" align="alignnone" width="458"]<img class="size-full wp-image-854838" src="https://www.cricketcountry.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/06/Yuvraj-content.jpg" alt="Yuvraj Singh ICC World Cup 2011 final" width="458" height="612" /> Yuvraj Singh with the 2011 World Cup man-of-the-tournament trophy (AFP Photo)[/caption] <p></p> <p></p>He went on to play 304 ODIs, scoring 8701 runs at 36.55 that included 14 centuries and 52 half-centuries. <p></p> <p></p>While Yuvraj established himself as a middle-order mainstay in India's middle-order setup, he failed to emulate it in the longest format. <p></p> <p></p>In 40 Tests, after debuting in October 2003, he scored 1900 runs at 33.92 with three centuries and 11 fifties. In 58 T20Is, he hit 1177 runs with eight half-centuries with his six sixes in an over of England pacer Stuart Broad during the inaugural World T20 remaining one of his most memorable innings.
