Yuvraj Singh

Yuvistrong is not just a name but he has proved to be strong in International cricket. He was instrumental in India’s two world cup wins. He is the first cricketer to hit six 6s in a single over. He did this miracle against England in the inaugural season of the World T20 in South Africa in 2007. In the 2011 world cup also, he was magnificent. He won ‘man of the tournament’ award for that season. The 37-year-old was also a part of the ICC Champions Trophy in England in 2017. India reached the final of that ICC tournament. Now, Yuvi has finally called it quits from playing International cricket. Yuvraj has scored 8701 runs from 304 ODI matches. He has 14 hundreds and 52 fifties to his name. In T20Is, he has over a thousand runs, with 8 half-centuries and going with that, Yuvi was a handy bowler as well. He has picked up 111 wickets in ODIs and 28 wickets from 58 T20Is. Yuvraj was the best all-rounder for India in that season. Yuvi also featured in the longest versions of the game, but, he never cemented his place in the test side. He has played 40 test matches for India and scored 1900 runs with 3 centuries in his Test career. All of these came against Pakistan. In 40 test matches, Yuvi also picked up 9 wickets to his name.

Ambati Rayudu

He was the best player when Virat wasn’t around. India rested Virat Kohli for the Asia cup and Rayudu was given the chance and he did well in that tournament. But, once Virat came in, Rayudu lost his place in the side. He was in the scheme of things but his inconsistent form at the international level and in the IPL saw him out of the squad. Rayudu was the player to play at the number 4 spot in the world cup 2019, but he never used that chance and hence, he announced his retirement. Many believe that this decision from Rayudu was taken in frustration for not being selected in the world cup squad. After Shikhar Dhawan’s injury in the world cup 2019, Rishabh Pant replaced him instead of Rayudu. Rayudu has played some good innings for India and his contribution can’t be ignored. He has played just 55 ODIs for India and in those 55 ODIs, Rayudu has scored 1694 runs with 3 centuries and 10 half-centuries. He played his last One Day International match in Ranchi against Australia this year. But, he didn’t do too well there as well.

In fact, he has been praised for grooming Jasprit Bumrah. Its Malinga’s lesson which Bumrah delivers in the final few overs. Those deadly Yorkers which Bumrah bowls is taught to him by the legend himself. Malinga has the most wickets in the final overs. Due to the variations of Yorkers, cutters, and slower bouncers, Malinga was the most dangerous bowlers in the final few overs. Malinga has served Sri Lankan cricket for 15 long years.

Another fast bowler who will retire from the longer version of the game, Dale Steyn. Steyn was the best red bowler which South Africa had produced. But, due to many injuries, Steyn was not part of many of South Africa’s test series. The numbers are astonishing for Steyn in whites. He has played just 93 test matches and he has picked up 439 wickets to his name. He had 26 fifers and 5 ten-wicket hauls in his wonderful career. Steyn has broken many records in test matches and it is good that he will continue to play the limited over contests for South Africa.

The best batsman for the Proteas across all the formats. Despite being a non-South African, Amla has batted really well at the top. He has opened for South Africa in all the 3 formats. He was the most preferred opener for his country. The South African cricket now has a tough job of finding another opener like Amla because everyone knows that there can be no other Amla for South Africa again. Even though he had an ordinary world cup but, he still was the best for the Proteas. He has played 124 test matches for South Africa and in those 124 matches, he has scored 9282 runs with 28 hundreds, 41 fifties and 4 double hundreds to his name. He was not less in the 50 over format. He scored many runs for South Africa. In 181 ODIs, Amla has scored 8113 runs with 27 hundreds and 39 fifties.

With that, he also has 2 centuries in the Indian Premier League. In that cash-rich tournament, Amla scored 577 runs from 16 IPL games. Amla was a complete package of batting. He has scored runs all over the globe. South Africa will find a torrid time now because there will be no AB De Villers, Dale Steyn and Hashim Amla in test matches for them. The next tour that South Africa will go to is India. The Proteas will play a 3 test match series in India from September 2019.
