Yuvraj Singh has always had the ability to do special things, but it was not until the 2011 World Cup that he did it consistently spectacularly on a global stage.
After being dropped the previous year, he was soon the Player of the Tournament. In his World Cup-winning collection there were 362 runs from his powerful, fluent strokeplay, and he backed that up with 15 wickets from his left-arm spin.
In ODIs he is nearing 300 games and owns 13 centuries and more than 100 wickets. Yuvraj has played Tests every year since debuting against New Zealand in 2003, but has managed only three centuries in those 35 games.
In Twenty20s he has a stunning strike-rate of 151.6 and his most memorable moment in that genre came with six sixes in an over off Stuart Broad in 2007.
