Veteran Indian cricket Yuvraj Singh has headed into the ICC Champions Trophy semi-final clash against Bangladesh with hopes of making the most of his 300th One-Day International appearance for the Men in Blue
On the eve of achieving the special milestone, Yuvraj posted an emotional tweet saying how all his parents, friends and fans will be proud of him to come this far fighting so many battles.
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 🙏👊🏽— yuvraj singh (@YUVSTRONG12) June 14, 2017
"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," Yuvi tweeted on the eve of the historic milestone.
While his Twitter account would have been flooded with notifications of people congratulating him on the achievement, the most special tweet of course remains of his wife Hazel Keech.
He is only the fifth Indian cricketer -- after Mohammed Azharuddin, Sachin Tendulkar, Sourav Ganguly and Rahul Dravid -- to achieve the rare milestone.
