Yuvraj Singh, former Indian swashbuckling batsman, and the two-time World Cup-winner, shared a heartfelt video as a tribute to his former ‘partner in crime’ MS Dhoni on the latters retirement.

Yuvraj, who announced his retirement last year, took to Twitter to congratulate MS Dhoni on a stellar 16-year-old career, adding that enjoyed lifting the 2007 and 2011 World Cup Trophies besides stitching the numerous match-winning partnerships during their respective careers.

”Congratulations @msdhoni on a great career! Enjoyed lifting the 2007 and 2011 WC trophies together for our country and our many partnerships on the field. My best wishes to you for the future 👍” tweeted Yuvraj Singh.

MS Dhoni and Yuvraj Singh will go down as possibly the two greatest middle-order batsman that India has ever produced in white-ball cricket. The duo was the heartbeat of the Indian white-ball teams throughout the 2000s and early 2010s. Who can forget their epic annihilation of Pakistan that helped India beat the arch-rivals in the 2006 ODI series? Or their partnership in the 2011 World Cup final or their 256 run-stand against England back in 2017? I have listed just three of the match-winning partnerships  Mahi and Yuvi stiched during their career or the number of run-chases they masterminded.

Overall, MS Dhoni and Yuvraj Singh batted together in 67 ODI innings, in which they accumulated 3105 runs at an average of 51.75, including 13 half-century and 10 100+ stands. And, it’s kind of fitting that both stalwarts scored their last One-day International hundred in the same game- vs England in 2017.
