One of the greatest all-rounders of all time, Yuvraj Singh has come up with delightful news for all his fans as he is set to make a comeback on the cricket pitch in February 2022. The southpaw hinted at his return via an Instagram video on Tuesday.
Yuvraj Singh shared a video of his 14th One Day International (ODI) century against England at the Barabati Stadium, Cuttack. The left-hander played an outstanding knock of 150 runs while batting first against the Three Lions.
