Profile

Probably the most naturally-gifted left-hander, Yuvraj Singh made his international debut at a tender age of 19. His ability to hit the ball long and clean was recognized right away. He made an immediate impact on the international stage with his scintillating stroke play. Since then he has more or less been a permanent fixture in the ODI side.
Although it seemed like Yuvraj was troubled by quality spin, he did not let it deter him. His handy left-arm spin combined with his agility have made him an important part of the team set-up. His ability to play crucial innings when it really matters has earned him the tag of a match-winner. He rocked the ICC World Twenty20 2007 by clobbering 6 consecutive sixes off a Stuart Broad over for the fastest fifty ever in cricket. Many critics tip 'Yuvi' to be a future captain of Indian cricket but his inexperience in the Test arena was always exposed by the spinners.
After Sourav Ganguly's retirement, Yuvraj was drafted back into the Test team after a string of consistent performances in the limited overs format. He responded with two half centuries, the first of which came in a record chase of 387 where he put on an unbeaten 163 runs with Sachin Tendulkar. He thus effectively sealed his place as a batsman in all three formats of the game. He is also an effective spinner and evidence of this came when he became the first bowler to scalp two hat-tricks in the IPL 2009. On current form, he is one of the most reliable players in the team.
He continues to hold fort for India in the ODI middle-order and his ability to accelerate the innings in the Power Play is, without doubt, one of the best in the side. He is undoubtedly one of the cleanest strikers of the ball in the present day and his long heaves to mid-wicket travel way beyond the boundary rope.
