Can't think of all-time India XI without considering Yuvraj: Dravid

Yuvraj Singh will go down as one of India's greatest one-day players

Yuvraj will follow the likes of Mohammed Azharuddin, Sachin Tendulkar, Sourav Ganguly and Rahul Dravid to the landmark when he takes to the field against Bangladesh in the semi-final of the 2017 ICC Champions Trophy and stays as passionate about contributing to India's success as he was in his first match.

One of Yuvraj's best-ever knocks in ODIs came in a game against a strong Australian team at Sydney in early 2004.

"I have seen ups and downs".

"To play for India is not that hard, but to sustain it is tough".

Coincidentally, it was at this very tournament in 2000 (the ICC Knockout tournament, which later came to be called as the Champions Trophy) that Yuvraj had first played for India. "In the game against Australia, where I scored a 134 and took four wickets, they were actually chasing well but I got the lengths right". So at that time, it's very important to believe in yourself. They have much more knowledge about eating, about training. And they're learning quickly because they get exposed to the IPL as well, which is a big tournament with worldwide cricketers. Cancer is something which I always talk [about].

"It's no surprise anymore to anyone that they are [doing] really well, and they've really improved their cricket, and it's a credit to their set-up and the kind of players they have now who are taking more responsibility, and they are a very risky side on their day, and everyone realises that", he said. That opportunity came only against Australia in the next game and Yuvraj Singh took the world by storm with a man-of-the-match performance.

That was when Yuvraj and Mohammad Kaif joined hands and put together one of India's most memorable partnerships. "That was a big game". "I've been playing domestic cricket for the last three years". That was the reason I could spend a lot of time at the ground. They spotted a Yuvraj fan, who looked exactly like him... and even posed with the Yuvraj! I won't talk about regrets when I'm in a good zone.
