Today Team India is facing neighbours Bangladesh in the second semifinal of the ICC Champions Trophy 2017. However, this match will be particularly special for Yuvraj Singh and his fans as the Indian southpaw will be playing his 300th ODI game.
He will be the 19th player and fifth Indian cricketer after Sachin Tendulkar, Mohammad Azharuddin, Sourav Ganguly and Rahul Dravid to reach this milestone. His entire career has been no less than any fairy tale as he has won all there is to win – the under-19 World Cup, the T20 World Cup and the ICC World Cup 2011.
300th game ! I’m sure my parents ,gurus,friends and well wishers will be proud of me today how far I have come with my battles in life 🙏👊🏽
As he reaches this milestone, the cricket world showered him with praises on twitter.
Here are few tweets from the cricket world:
