New Delhi: Indian great Yuvraj Singh, a destructive left-handed batsman and a handy left-arm spinner, on Monday brought down curtains on his cricket career and announced retirement from all formats of the game. Singh, the hero of India’s 2011 World Cup triumph, made the announcement in a press conference in Mumbai. As soon as he made the announcement, wishes poured in from his co-players from around the world. His former teammate Rohit Sharma also tweeted but unlike others, he apparently raised questions on the BCCI’s way of handling Yuvraj Singh’s retirement.In his tweet, Rohit said, “You don’t know what you got till its gone. Love you brotherman You deserved a better send off.” Yuvraj Singh too responded to Rohit’s tweet. “You know how I feel inside! Love u brothaman you go be a legend.” Yuvraj Singh said in his reply to Rohit Sharma’s tweet.During his press conference, Yuvraj Singh did speak about not getting a farewell match. Singh revealed that the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) had told him that if he failed the Yo Yo fitness test, he would be given a farewell match. However, he passed the test and never got a farewell match.”I was told that if you are not able to pass the ‘Yo-Yo’ test, I would get a farewell game. I did not tell anyone in BCCI that I have to play the last match. Agar main accha tha, potential tha toh main ground pe se chale jaata. (If I was good enough, I would have retired from the ground). Aur mujhe is tarha ki cricket khelna pasand nahi hai, ki mujhe ek match chahiye (I don’t like to ask for a game, I have never played the game with that mindset),” Yuvraj said during the press conference.”Toh maine us time bola ki mujhe retirement match nahi chahiye, ‘Yo-Yo’ test pass nahi hoga toh main chup chhap ghar chale jayunga… ‘Yo-Yo’ test pass kiya and then rest is not my call (Then i said i don’t need retirement match, if i don’t pass the Yo-Yo test, i would go home…. i passed the test and then rest is not my call),” he said.Yuvraj Singh made his international debut for India in 2000. During his 19-year-old career, he played 304 ODIs for India and scored 8,701 runs at an average of 36.55. In the 58 T20I matches he played for the country, Yuvraj Singh scored 1,177 runs at an average of 28.02. In Tests, Yuvraj could not perform up to his potential, and scored just 1900 runs in 40 matches he played. His last appearance in the blue jersey came in an ODI against West Indies in 2017. last_img read more

first_imgThough slow out of the gate, Westhill did have most of the early opportunities. Chittenango weathered them and, in the 27th minutes, took a 1-0 lead when Emily Moon’s free kick from the right corner was deflected in by Ally Shoemaker.Everything changed when, less than four minutes before halftime, Bears goalie Cassidy Kelly could not hold on to Rudnick’s initial shot from a cross by Ashley Bolesh and Rudnick tapped in the rebound.The 1-1 tie lasted all of 56 seconds in the second half before Bolesh, after Kelly’s spectacular diving stop on a Rudnick shot, sped in and converted the rebound. Then Erica Gangemi scored on a breakaway less than five minutes later, again assisted by Rudnick Those three goals in a span of less than nine minutes proved decisive, though Gangemi would add a second goal, again off a feed from Rudnick. Worse yet for the Bears, defender Alivia Narolis left the game late with an injury. Kelly finished the night with 10 saves.Now Chittenango went to Marcellus, and this proved even more exciting, a back-and-forth battle that was not decided until late in the second overtime period, where the Bears finally were subdued in a 3-2 decision.Most of the first half was scoreless until the Mustangs’ Sara Milniecki scored in the 36th minute. And it got worse for Chittenango when Sarah Fallon found the net less than five minutes into the second half.But the Bears showed lots of resolve, getting on the board when Moon’s corner kick was put home by Maryanna Garcia, and tying it 2-2 when another Moon corner deflected off several players before Shoemaker converted.So it went to overtime, and much of the 20 minutes went without a decisive goal. Then, with 2:10 left, Sarah Fallon’s cross was charged by Mielnicki, but she faked a shot and, instead, Katie MacLachlan put the ball past Kelly, who to that point had recorded eight saves.This tough week brought Chittenango back home on Saturday to face Cicero-North Syracuse, and though it tried to bounce back, the Bears could not quite do so, falling 3-2 to the Northstars despite goals by Madison Wagner and Sarah Martin. Kelly finished with 20 saves.As Chittenango fell to Westhill, Cazenovia, 5-2-1 in the first half of the regular season, was having its own match against Marcellus, and getting quite close to pushing the state-ranked Mustangs to overtime.Annie Baldwin landed an unassisted goal, with Goalie Tessa Hansknecht recording eight saves. But Marcellus prevailed 2-1 thanks to goals by Sarah Fallon and Katie MacLachlan, with assists going to Mei LaMarre and Sam Wynne.Rebounding from this, the Lakers rolled past Altmar-Parish-Williamstown 3-0 on Thursday afternoon. Twice, Reff scored, giving Cazenovia a cushion after Lili Gavitt put her team on the board. Gavitt and Caitlin Smithers both earned assists.The Lakers would go to Mexico on Thursday and then host Phoenix Thursday night as Chittenango, after all the challenges it faced last week, would have its own match Thursday against Mexico.Share this:FacebookTwitterLinkedInRedditComment on this Story A 7-0 start by the Chittenango girls soccer team had garnered plenty of attention, but it still had not faced its most difficult regular-season tests.And they arrived within a 48-hour span last week, with the Bears first going to Westhill, and then venturing to Marcellus to meet the area’s most accomplished Class B programs.The trip to Westhill last Tuesday began quite well, and Chittenango even led late in the first half, but then it all broke apart in the middle stages as the Warriors took over and prevailed 4-1.center_img Tags: CazenoviaChittenangogirls soccerlast_img read more
