The birth of yuvraj singh, who announced his arrival on the big stage with a pulsating 84 and some electric fielding against Australia in a quater final match in the 2000 ICC Knockout in Nairobi. Before long he was India's next pin-up boy. The hype grew when he and Mohammad Kaif revived a dead chase with a match-winning partnership in the final of the 2002 netwest series. A tendency to blow hot and cold has plagued Yuvraj through his international career, but when he's on song there's no stopping him. He matched Garry's Sobers' feat of six sixs in a over, carting Stuart Broad into orbit in the course of making the fastest t20 half century- off 12 balls - during the World T20 in 2007. He took India to the 50-over World Cup in 2011, with a Player-of-the-Series performance: 362 runs and 15 wickets. However, his limitations manifested themselves in Tests - apart from three shining innings, his Test career didn't really take off. Soon after the 2011 World Cup, he was diagnosed with cancer, for which he was treated in the USA. He returned to India's limited-overs sides after recovering, but was not able to recapture his form of old.
