Yuvraj Singh is all set to make his 300th ODI appearance in Indian jersey when he steps out in the field against Bangladesh in the second semi-final of the ICC Champions Trophy 2017. The left-hander began his career in 2000 in the Knockout tournament against Kenya but didn’t get a chance to serve with the bat.
But the aggressive left-handed batsman didn’t waste much time and in his very second match, Yuvraj scored 84 against Australia. Prior to India’s encounter against Bangladesh, the Indian team held a special presentation for Yuvraj Singh. A memento was presented to Yuvraj by former Indian captain Sourav Ganguly.
