Malayalam superstar Mohanlal took to Twitter and thanked Yuvraj Singh for his magical performances as he announces his retirement from global cricket.

He said, "It was great rollercoaster ride and handsome story but it has to come to an end".

Yuvraj was quick to reply to Rohit's comment, saying the Indian opening batsman knew how he "felt inside". "#YuvrajSingh." Well, the feat of smashing six sixes in a single over against Stuart Broad in the 2007 World T20 is something that will stay forever in the memories of Indians.

"After nearly 17 years of global cricket on and off, I have chose to move on", he said after being reduced to tears by a video of the highlights of his career. The time comes in everyone's life when they think that, 'Enough now.' I would say that I had thought a year back itself that I will retire at this time. "Cricket has given me everything and that's why I am standing here", he said after being reduced to tears by a video of the highlights of his career. It was such a love-hate relationship with the sport. "This game taught me how to fight, how to fall, to dust off, to get up again and move forward", said the 2011 World Cup hero.

"I am proud of what I have achieved on and off the field".

Apart from the 2011 World Cup, another highlight in his illustrious career would be the 6 sixes he hit at the inaugural edition of the World T20 in South Africa in 2007.

The 37-year-old was diagnosed with mediastinal seminoma, a germ-cell tumour located between his two lungs immediately after the 2011 World Cup, but made a return to global cricket and also established a cancer foundation.

In what seemed a game that was there for England to win - after India's famed top-order flopped - Yuvraj combined with Mohammad Kaif to take the visitors home as visuals of a shirtless Sourav Ganguly waving the jersey from the Lord's balcony became part of folklore.
