Retired Indian cricketer Yuvraj Singh's Mumbai Indians captain Rohit Sharma, has raked up a controversy, suggesting the World Cup winner and the Man of the Series of the 2011 World Cup deserved a better farewell.

Yuvraj Singh parted ways with cricket at a plush South Mumbai hotel yesterday. In his farewell speech, Yuvraj Singh had revealed that the BCCI had offered him a farewell match if he would fail the Yo Yo test. 

However, Yuvraj Singh passed the Yo Yo test, making him eligible for a Team India call-up but ineligible for a farewell match. Yuvraj Singh last played a match in India colours in 2017.

Yuvraj Singh was last seen on the field for Mumbai Indians in the IPL 2019. After a decent display on the field in the first 4 matches, Yuvraj Singh was dropped from the Mumbai Indians playing 11 in favour of a young Ishan Kishan.
