Hailed as one of the greatest ever match-winners for India, Yuvraj Singh brought down the curtains on his brilliant career. The 37-year-old announced his retirement from international cricket at a press conference in Mumbai on Monday.

Honouring the ferocious southpaw, his former team-mate Virender Sehwag said that "Players will come and go, but players like Yuvraj are very rare to find".

England pacer, Stuart Broad, who was hit for six sixes in an over by Yuvraj, hailed th Indian all-rounder as a legend in a seemingly conciliatory message, which reads:

India captain Virat Kohli thanked Yuvraj for giving "so many memories and victories."

Former India opener, who also played a vital role in India's 2011 World Cup triumph hailed Yuvraj as "the best ever white ball cricketer India had".

Mohammad Kaif, his long-time partner in crime, also said that Yuvraj is "One of the greatest match-winners in the history of the game".

Former England captain, Kevin Pietersen used 'pie-chucker' incident to wish Yuvi a happy retirement.

While announcing his retirement, Yuvraj told reporters that he has decided to move on.
