Yuvraj Singh has announced his decision to retire from international cricket with immediate effect and his massive fanbase is not holding back in paying their tributes. In his heyday, Yuvraj was one of the cleanest strikers of the ball in the game -- as England's Stuart Broad discovered when he was bludgeoned for six sixes in one over during the 2007 World Twenty20.
Here are some of the most heartwarming posts being shared by fans to pay tribute to Yuvraj Singh.

The people who saw him playing, sending the balls into the orbit, uprooting the stumps of the ground and growing aerial on the field has had the best of their lives.

Yuvraj made an emotional return to the game in 2012 after a lengthy fight with a rare germ cell cancer in his lungs and played the last of his 40 tests that same year.
He scored 1,900 runs in the longest format of the game with three hundred and 11 half-centuries.
