On Sunday, the illustrious Indian all-rounder Yuvraj Singh thanked Stuart Broad of England for calling it quits on his illustrious international career.  The fifth Test of the Ashes series, which is now underway, will mark the end of Broad’s international cricket career, he declared on Saturday.  “Step up, @StuartBroad8.” As one of the best and most feared red ball bowlers and a true legend, congrats on an amazing Test career! Your perseverance and journey have been incredibly motivating. Broady, best of luck for the upcoming leg,” Yuvraj tweeted.

Notably, Yuvraj destroyed Broad in a match that would define his career during the 2007 ICC T20 World Cup. Yuvraj became the first Indian to hit six sixes in an over in international cricket.
