NEW DELHI: Monday saw Yuvraj Singh bring curtain down on his international career. The 37-year-old represented India in 40 Tests, 304 ODIs and 58 T20Is.

Yuvraj was also the man of the tournament in the 2011 World Cup, which India went on to win by beating Sri Lanka in the final. The Chandigarh born left-hander scored a total of 11,778 international runs and picked up 148 wickets.

His career was interrupted by cancer, a battle which he eventually overcame.

Now that Yuvraj has called time on his career, teammates have taken to social media to pay tribute to one of the best players to have worn the India Jersey.
