# Yuvraj Singh is the only player to win the World Cup, the T20 World Cup and the U19 World Cup.

I'd like to extend a very warm welcome to my friends from the media, my family, friends and fans from all across the world who are going to be part of, what is a very hard and at the same time a attractive moment for me I can't really put it in words but I will try.

"Mujhe bola gaya tha agar aapse "Yo Yo" test pass nahi hota toh aap retirement match khel sakate ho (I was told that if you are not able to pass the "Yo-Yo" test, I would get a farewell game)", Yuvraj Singh said at the press conference.

Indian cricket's fascination with Yuvraj Singh reached new heights by the end of the 2007 T20 world cup that India won, and funnily enough, they had Andrew Flintoff to thank for it. Yuvraj Singh's career peak point came when he was awarded the Man of the Tournament in India's World Cup triumph in 2011. It was so shattering that I felt my career was over.

Yuvraj revealed that his first love had been roller-skating and he only reluctantly played cricket because his father, one-test bowler Yograj Singh, would not let him take up any other sport.

A massive 304 ODIs was where Yuvraj Singh really blossomed, scoring 8701 runs at an average of 36.55 with 14 centuries and 42 fifties. When everybody said it was impossible. Trust me, I have never stopped believing in myself. I made some great friends and not such great friends playing for so many years. But since he will not be playing the IPL, there is little ground for not giving him the permission.

"Yes, definitely, I want to go and play some T20 cricket". I would also like to thank all my sports staff who made it possible for my body to last this long specially Nitin Patel & Ashish Kaushik. Yuvraj also was a role model as he fought off cancer to come back into worldwide cricket, was also a star of the Indian Premier League, representing several franchises and scoring heavily during his heydays. He scored a fine knock of 70 runs from 30 balls in the semi-final contest against Australia in the 2007 T20 World Cup. These were some epic battles and I'll always cherish these memories for rest of my life. To be a part of the history that was made after 28 years, I mean honestly what more could I ask for.

"I am going to go and enjoy my life, it has been too stressful just thinking about my global career, performing in big tournaments like IPL". "I have chose to move on", he said at a press briefing in Mumbai. You gave us so many memories and victories and I wish you the best for life and everything ahead. See you on the other side.
