Sachin Tendulkar thanked Yuvraj Singh for his contribution to the Indian cricket as the latter announced his retirement on Monday. The World Cup 2011 winners have shared a special bond with each other on and off the field. Tendulkar believed that Yuvraj will be crucial for India’s chances to win the World Cup 2011. The all-rounder repaid Tendulkar’s trust by taking 15 wickets and scoring 362 runs in 8 matches.
What a fantastic career you have had Yuvi.
You have come out as a true champ everytime the team needed you. The fight you put up through all the ups & downs on & off the field is just amazing. Best of luck for your 2nd innings & thanks for all that you have done for Cricket. pic.twitter.com/J9YlPs87fv

The Master Blaster had once said that he was scared of breaking down in front of Yuvraj when they met in London during his cancer treatment in the United States.
“When I saw my wife discussing medical terms with Yuvraj, I realised what he had been going through,” Tendulkar had said at the release of Yuvraj’s book ‘The Test of My Life: From Cricket to Cancer and Back’.
“When I went to meet him in London, I was telling my wife that I don’t want to break down when I see him,” Tendulkar added.
