Profile

When all is well with Yuvraj Singh, he hits the ball as clean and long as it has ever been hit. When all is not well, he looks so awkward you forget he can hit the ball clean and long. All has been well with Yuvraj more often in limited-overs cricket, where he can be effortless and brutal at the same time, than in Tests, though his form and consistency has been on the decline since his comeback following a recovery from a rare form of germ cell cancer in 2012. When he started off, though, his athleticism on the field and his canny left-arm spin made him a key one-day player as Indian cricket went through a makeover at the turn of the century.

Timeline
    • January 2000
      Making an early impression
      • Yuvraj Singh's talent is spotted fairly early and he makes a mark in India's Under-19 World Cup triumph in Sri Lanka in 2000. He makes 203 runs at 33.83 and also impresses with his left-arm spin. Less than a year later, he is a part of the national team.
    • October 2000
      Grabbing the limelight
      • Yuvraj hits the headlines in just his second ODI when the Indian team is emerging out of the match-fixing crisis under the leadership of Sourav Ganguly. Against Australia in the quarter-final of the ICC Knockout Tournament, Yuvraj blazes to 84 off 80 balls in a memorable win.
    • August 2001
      Recovery after a slump
      • Yuvraj is unable to live up to expectations after that tournament and experiences a decline before fighting back with an unbeaten 98 against Sri Lanka in Colombo.
