Yuvraj Singh

Name: Yuvraj Singh

Date of Birth: December 12, 1981

Place of Birth: Chandigarh


Yuvraj is primarily a left-handed batsman but can bowl part-time left-arm orthodox spin. He is regarded as being a better player of fast bowling than spin bowling, and cites the Indian Oil Cup 2005 as a turning point in his career.He is one of the better fielders in the Indian team, fielding primarily at point, with a good aim at the stumps. A Cricinfo report published in late 2005 showed that since 1999, he was the fourth most prolific fielder in effecting ODI run outs, and of those on the list of prolific fielders, he had the second highest rate of effecting a run out.He was previously often characterized as having attitude problems,but now often assumes leadership positions whilst either captain Rahul Dravid or vice-captain Sachin Tendulkar are absent.

Yuvraj was signed by Microsoft to be a brand ambassador for the Xbox 360 video game console when it was launched in India in 2006. He appeared in advertisements for the console alongside Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar. A cricket game with his endorsement, Yuvraj Singh International Cricket 2007, was announced for release in 2007 in India.
