Yuvraj Singh, a former India cricketer, and Shabnam Singh raised Singh in a Punjabi Sikh home. Yuvraj’s favourite childhood activities were tennis and roller skating, both of which he excelled at. He’d also taken first place in the National Under-14 Roller Skating Championships. His father tossed the medal in the trash and advised him to focus on cricket instead of skating. Every day, he’d drive Yuvraj to practise.
In Chandigarh, Yuvraj attended the DAV Public School. DAV College, Panjab University, Chandigarh, is where he earned his bachelor’s degree in commerce. In the films Mehndi Sagna Di and Putt Sardara, he also had two brief parts as a kid star.
Achievements as a Cricketer
Yuvraj Singh, a former Indian international cricketer, was born on December 12, 1981, and played in all formats of the game. He was noted for his aggressive and graceful stroke play, as well as his match-winning all-around performances for India. He is a left-handed middle-order batsman who also bowls slow left-arm orthodox. In the 2011 ICC Cricket World Cup, he scored 362 runs and took 15 wickets, earning him the Man of the Series award. He was also one of the best players in the 2007 ICC World T20, which India won both times. Yuvraj Singh is the son of Yograj Singh, a former Indian fast bowler who is now a Punjabi actor. In ODI cricket, he has earned seven Player of the Series accolades, which is tied for second-most by an Indian.
Between 2000 and 2017, Yuvraj represented India in One Day Internationals (ODIs), and he made his Test debut in October 2003. Between 2007 and 2008, he served as India’s ODI vice-captain. He memorably smashed six sixes in one overthrown by Stuart Broad in a match against England at the 2007 World T20, a feat accomplished just three times in any form of senior cricket before, and never in an international competition against two countries with Test match status. In the same match, he hit 50 runs in 12 balls, breaking the record for the fastest fifty in Twenty20 Internationals and all T20 cricket. He was the first player to have a 5-wicket haul and hit a 50 in the same World Cup match during the 2011 tournament.
