New Delhi:

His name will go down in the history of the game as the batsman who slaughtered Stuart Broad's bowling for six sixes off six balls in the inaugural ICC World Twenty20 2007. Often considered as Team India's savoir, Yuvraj Singh possesses the talent to snatch the win from the opposition's jaws.

Member of Indian team since 2000, Yuvraj is primarily a left-handed batsman but can bowl part-time left-arm orthodox spin. He is regarded as being better at batting against fast bowling than spin, and cites the Indian Oil Cup 2005 as a turning point in his career.

He is one of the efficient fielders in the team, fielding primarily at point. His game got the right boost during Rahul Dravid's stint as captain.
