The left-hander said he liked Chris Gayle, Ricky Ponting, Muttiah Muralitharan, Glenn McGrath among others when asked about favourite overseas fellows.

“I made some great friends and some not so great friends in cricket over the years. I have never stopped believing in myself...always believe in yourself," he said.

"This game taught me how to fight, how to fall, to dust off, to get up again and move forward. It has been a lovely journey...see you on the other side," he added.

Yuvraj Singh played 40 Tests, 304 ODIs and 58 T20 Internationals for India from 2003 to 2017.

Yuvraj Singh was at his best in the 2011 World Cup and proved pivotal for the team to bag the cup as he scored 362 runs, took 15 wickets, was declared man-of-the-match four times and remained the Player of the Tournament.

Another aspect of his life was his battle against Cancer. He went overseas for treatment and surprised everyone with a comeback.

He also continued to be a huge favourite for teams in the Indian Premier League as in 2014, Yuvraj Singh went to Royal Challengers Bangalore for Rs 14 crore while Delhi Capitals snapped him up for Rs 16 crore the next year.

Moreover, Sunrisers Hyderabad invested Rs 7 crore in Yuvraj Singh in 2016.
