2011 Cricket World Cup Final – For the first time since he announced his international retirement, all-rounder Yuvraj Singh has cited India’s 2011 Men’s Cricket World Cup win as the biggest moment of his career.

Yuvraj was player of the series in that tournament and eventually brought cricket’s biggest trophy back to his country coupled with a domestic campaign to top his other achievements. “The biggest moment of my career was winning the world championship in 2011 and being the man of the series.” “And we also won in India after 28 years. There couldn’t be a higher record.” Compared to winning the World Cup with India, Yuvraj explained that his desire for a personal milestone went out the window. “Winning the World Cup is better than scoring 10,000 points,” he said. “I’ve never thought about 10,000 points. I’ve always thought about winning the world championship.”

Yuvraj was one of his country’s most successful ODI players with 52 half-centuries and a total of 8,702 runs in the format, but world-beating success in the longer format somewhat eluded him. He played only 40 matches in Test cricket and made his debut in 2003 when several top players were established in the Indian batting line-up.

“I think I played at a time when it was very difficult to place myself,” he said. “I had (VVS) Laxman, (Sourav) captain Ganguly, Sachin (Tendulkar), Rahul (Dravid), Viru (Virender Sehwag) started to open up… It was very difficult to find space in the middle order. I used to play one or two Test matches (to prove myself) compared to to today’s players who have 10-15 test matches so I didn’t get that slot because it was just me Sourav or Laxman… Finally I got my slot but because I was diagnosed with cancer… I don’t know what to say… I was unhappy , watching the whole trip was great, but it’s a shame I didn’t play [Tests]… There was great will in the second 40 Test matches.

“I batted at number 6, my average was 34-35. Not very good. I wanted an average of 40. I’m sure the runs helped India win the match. It’s a shame of course, but I did my best..” After naming Ganguly and MS Dhoni as the best captains in which he has ever played, Yuvraj went on to list his toughest opponents on the international stage, citing certain Sri Lankan spinners as the best players he has ever faced. “I think Muttiah Muralitharan is the toughest I have ever faced,” he admitted. “Another one would be Glenn McGrath. I admire overseas cricketers… Ricky Ponting is someone I really admire as a batsman. AB de Villiers, Chris Gayle… When I played them, this guy I thought they were serious forces.”

When asked who most resembles him right now, Yuvraj named India’s young batsman and fellow left-handed batsman Rishabh Pant, claiming the 21-year-old might surpass him. “Not quite me, but I think he has the potential to get better,” he said.

“He has already scored 200 runs in Australia and England. I think the lad has great potential to be a very aggressive, game-winning left-hander. I look forward to seeing him in the next few years.”

Yuvi has had a truly amazing career. Whenever the team needed you, you proved to be a true champion. The fight you go through all the ups and downs on and off the field is truly amazing. 2 innings of luck and 🇮🇳 Cricket.🙌 pic.twitter.com/J9YlPs87fv — Sachin Tendulkar (@sachin_rt) June 10, 2019

Yuvraj hopes to be involved in sports in the future, but plans to stay away from the game for now and spend time with a foundation that helps cancer patients. He said: “I’ll enjoy it for a year or two and think about it afterwards.” “Right now I’m going to take a break. I definitely want to give something back to cricket and work with the younger generation in the future.”

After alleging that the 2011 World Cup final was “sold” to India by “certain parties” in Sri Lanka, the island nation’s former sports minister Mahindananda Aluthgamage has now termed his allegations as “suspicious” which wants to be investigated.

The Lankan government has ordered an investigation into the matter, and the special investigation unit of the police recorded Aluthgamage’s statement on Wednesday. He told the team that his repair was just questionable.

“I have provided the police with a copy of the complaint I made to the International Cricket Council (ICC) on October 30, 2011 regarding the allegations referred to as the then Sports Minister,” he said.

Aluthgamage claimed that his country had “sold” the game to India, a claim that was mocked by former captains Kumar Sangakkara and Mahela Jayawardene, who demanded proof from him.

India chased down the target of 275 thanks to excellent performances from Gautam Gambhir (97) and captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni (91).

Aluthgamage, who was then the sports minister, said: “I am telling you today that we sold the 2011 World Cup. When I was the sports minister, I said this.”

“He must submit his evidence to the International Criminal Court and the anti-corruption and security services so that the allegations can be thoroughly investigated,” he tweeted.

Aluthgamage stated that he did not think anyone was involved in fixing the results, but “certain parties were”.

Both Aluthgamage and then President Mahinda Rajapaksa were among those invited to the finals held at Mumbai’s Wankhede Stadium.

On his insistence, Aravinda de Silva, the then chairman of selectors, urged the BCCI to conduct its own investigation.
