The legend of Yuvraj Singh is not just the story of an athlete who has defeated cancer. It has been built on the back of some superlative out-of-the-world performances.
1. Six on Toast: He is the only Indian batsman to hit six sixers in one over against an international bowler.
2. Boy to Man: He has been Man of the Tournament at the Under-19 World Cup in Colombo in 2000 as well as at at 2011's World Cup, the biggest stage for any cricketer.
3. Natwest High: In a partnership with Mohammed Kaif, he helped India beat England in the Natwest Trophy final in 2002. It inspired Sourav Ganguly to rip off his shirt on the balcony at Lord's.
4. Top of the World: Playing with cancer, Yuvi picked up 15 wickets and smashed 362 runs in 9 matches at the World Cup in 2011.
