New Delhi, Jun 11 (IBNS): #YuviDeservesProperFarewell trends on micro-blogging site Twitter after Indian vice captain Rohit Sharma felt cricketer Yuvraj Singh deserved a better sent-off.

"You don’t know what you got till its gone. Love you brotherman You deserved a better send off. @YUVSTRONG12," Sharma tweeted. 

When asked whether he wanted a farewell match, Singh, who was missing from the Indian team for quite sometime, said: "No I don't like that. I was informed that I can get a farewell match after passing Yo-Yo test. I passed the Yo-Yo test but refused to play the farewell match."

Take a look at Yuvraj Singh's career

Singh, 37, first came into the limelight at the ICC U19 Cricket World Cup in 2000 in Sri Lanka, when he was named Player of the Tournament and made his international debut at the ICC Champions Trophy in the same year.

The left-handed all-rounder last played international cricket in 2017 and has retired with 1,900 runs and nine wickets in 40 Test matches, 8,701 runs and 111 wickets in 304 ODIs, and 1,177 runs and 28 wickets in 58 T20Is.

Singh was named player of the tournament at the 2011 World Cup played in India, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka, when he scored one century and four fifties for an aggregate of 362 runs, while also grabbing 15 wickets.

During the 2007 T20 World Cup in South Africa, he smashed six sixes in an over off Stuart Broad in a crucial league match.

Singh was diagnosed with mediastinal seminoma, a germ-cell tumour located between his two lungs immediately after the 2011 World Cup, but made a return to international cricket and also established a cancer foundation.  However, except a few good innings, his career never happened to be same as before. 

Singh was named in ICC’s ODI Team of the Year in 2006, 2009 and 2011 while his six sixes in an over won him the ICC T20I Performance of the Year award in 2008.
