He may have lost a bit of his on-field touch but cricketer Yuvraj Singh showed on the ramp that he is still the suave and stylish player who can bowl any maiden over. The dashing player joined Bollywood celebrities like Nargis Fakhri, Shruti Haasan and Neha Dhupia - among others, on the ramp during the fourth day of the Lakme Fashion Week on Saturday.

Walking the ramp for designer Arjun Khanna, Yuvraj looked 'racy' in an off-white shirt, matching trousers and a racing helmet as an accessory. He looked confident as he showed off his moves with the audience cheering his every step.
Yuvraj tweeted his appreciation and said he had a fantastic time.
Following his lengthy but successful bout with cancer, the Indian all-rounder has made it a point to do his bit towards awareness of the lethal disease. In July 2014, after starring in the Lord's bicentenary Test with a century, Yuvraj Singh held a charity auction in London on July 14 to raise funds for YOUWECAN, an initiative of the Yuvraj Singh Foundation that was started to help in facilitating early cancer detection. The auction included cricket memorabilia such as Sachin Tendulkar's T-shirt from his 200th Test match, the 2011 World cup-winning medal and a chance to win a dinner date with Yuvraj and a special practice session with him.
While he may have made waves under the sparkling ramp lights on Saturday, the hope of an India return seems to be fading away for the 32-year-old. Yuvraj last played an ODI for India on December 11, 2013 while his last Test appearance was in December 2012. Although he did feature in WorldT20 earlier this year, he has failed to cement his spot in the national side since.
