Vastavam web: Leaving millions of fans teary-eyed, dynamic Indian cricketer Yuvraj Singh decided to hang up his boots on Monday. Announcing the decision at a press conference in Mumbai, the 37-year-old said after 17 years of international cricket, he has “decided to move on”. The World Cup champion added that cricket has given everything and has taught him to not to give up until last breath.
After the southpaw announced his retirement, social media has been flooded with wishes from all corners. Several Indian legends, including Sachin Tendulkar, Virender Sehwag, VVS Laxman, Harbhajan Singh, and Virat Kohli, congratulated Yuvraj on ending a successful career and wished him well for his future endeavours. However, one tweet from Rohit Sharma has been fetching attention.
The Indian vice-captain opined that his former team-mate did not get a fitting farewell and deserved a better send-off. Taking to Twitter on Monday night, Rohit Sharma wrote, “You don’t know what you got till it’s gone. Love you brotherman You deserved a better send off.”
The heartening camaraderie between the two Indian cricketers is currently winning the internet. Rohit Sharma, who recently captained Yuvraj Singh while leading Mumbai Indians in the IPL, is known to share a close association with the flamboyant left-hander.
