         Yuvraj Singh famously known as Yuvi, has became the backbone of Indian Cricket Middle order. He became an overnight star when at the 2007 World T20 against England he hit six sixes in a single over of Stuart Broad, which was a rare feat in  International Cricket.

Once during shooting an action sequence, he was running after a local train and the another man, who was trying to board the train, landed up tripping him and yuvi fell between the train and the platform and on the tracks. His head was inches from the tracks. But one of the
crew member reacted swiftly and skilfully and pulled him out before anything more untoward could occure.   
          He studied in DAV Public School in Chandigarh, his maximum attendance was at the cricket pitch rather than the class room. His lucky number is 12, cause 12th December his birthdate. He says December is a wonderful time of the year in Chandigarh and the chilly winter always returns sevral fond memories of all  the years he spent there.
           When he was around 7 years old, he forced to his mother for a bicycle. But she put it off as long as she could. Due to his stubborn behaviour finally he got a new bicycle. For the first time he took his new bicycle on the road and drove straight into rickshaw and ended up with 10 stitches. When he was young. One of his friend lay his hand on an air gun and his friends were goofing around with it not knowing how it 
works. Yuvi decided to take matters into his own hands and make sure it worked. Unfortunately, he did too much and it worked so well that accidentlly handed up shooting his friend in the stomach. Thankfully it was a minor injury.
           Tennis and roller skating were among Yuvi's favourite sports during his childhood and he was quite good at both. He won the National U-14 Roller Skating Championship. His father threw away the medal and told him to forget skating and concentrate on cricket. He would take Yuvi training everyday. Yuvi's international cricket carrer started in 2003. He became famous as a all rounder player. His batting style is left handed.Yuvi hit six sixes in a single over of Stuart Broad.


            At first Yuvi's name joins with Kim Sharma than Deepika Padukone. Dhoni romancing with Deepika has taken a twist. The story has switched to Yuvraj Singh. Yuvi-Deepika affair seems to be on cards . Well, the story of Yuvi's reunion with Kim Sharma was doing the rounds but that looked unlikely. Now it turn of Karishma, Telugu film actress and model. They both like to spend time with each other.
           During World Cup he was coughing and vomating all through the tournament. But he thought it was just the stress. After all, he finally went to see a doctor, there come the shocking news that he was battling lung cancer. In 2011 he was diagnosed with a cancer and underwent chemotherapy treatment at the Cancer Research Institute in Boston, USA as well in Indianapolis, Indiana for medicine facilities. In March 2012.
