Yuvraj Singh is considered one of India’s greatest all-rounders. He was often called the man of big occasions. The all-rounder performed when it mattered the most. Throughout his cricket career, Yuvraj played many match-defining knocks to bail India out from the crunch situations and take them closer to victory. His exploits helped the team in lifting two prestigious trophies namely the 2007 World T20 and the 2011 ICC World Cup.
Yuvraj Singh was certainly a huge name in limited-overs but he failed to make a big name in the longest format. In his illustrious international career of 17 years, the left-hander played a stunning 304 One Day Internationals and 58 T20 Internationals scoring 8701 and 1177 runs respectively at a strike rate of 87.7 and 136.4 respectively.
He also picked up 111 wickets and 28 T20I wickets. He had a decent economy rate of 5.10 and 7.06 respectively. When it comes to the white ball format Yuvraj Sing is a legend.
Yuvraj Singh played 40 Test Matches
In his entire career, the batter could feature in just 40 Test matches scoring 1900 runs and picking 9 wickets. Yuvraj Singh isn’t happy with the way his Test career panned out and he hinted towards the same with his latest tweet.
On May 19, Wisden India made a post on their social media handle where they asked the cricket fans to name the cricketer who should have donned Whites for a longer period in his cricket career. The news portal posted a picture of Yuvraj Singh with the same.
“Which former Indian cricketer do you wish played more Tests?” Wisden tweeted.
Yuvraj Singh replied to this tweet and took a jibe at the Indian team management. Yuvraj gave a sarcastic reply saying that he will probably be able to play more Test cricket in his next life only when he isn’t made 12th man for as many as seven years.
“Probably next life! When I’m not 12th man for 7 years,” he wrote in the comment box.
Probably next life! When I’m not 12th man for 7 years 🤪
