London, June 11 (IBNS): Indian team vice captain Rohit Sharma, who had played with Yuvraj Singh in the 2007 World T20, said the Indian cricketer deserved a better farewell.

"You don’t know what you got till its gone. Love you brotherman You deserved a better send off. @YUVSTRONG12," Sharma tweeted.

Yuvraj announced his retirement from international cricket on Monday.

Yuvraj had put up heroic show in the 2007 World T20 and 2011 World Cup which were won by India under the leadership of MS Dhoni. 

Singh announced his retirement by thanking all his family members and teammates while holding a press conference here.

"I took the decision a year ago. I was sure that 2019 IPL would be my last tournament," he said. "I was not getting opportunities much as well."

However, the south-paw said he will continue to play T20 cricket with the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI)'s permission.

One of the sharpest fielder of "Team India", Singh was the architect of the men-in-blue's 2011 World Cup win. He was declared the man of the tournament.

Under captain Sourav Ganguly, Singh made his international debut against Kenya in 2000. He soon emerged as one of the key players in Ganguly's team. He was also a part of Mahendra Singh Dhoni's 2007 T20 World Cup winning team.He had hammered six sixers in an over during a match against England. Yuvraj remained a sensation for the nation with his batting heroics.

After the 2011 World Cup, the middle order batsman was diagnosed with disease cancer and were out of the sport for quite long time.

After successfully battling cancer, Singh made a comeback to international cricket in 2013 against Australia. Except a few good innings, his career never happened to be same as before.

In ODI career, Singh scored 8,701 runs and picked 111 wickets in 304 matches. He scored 1,177 runs in 58 T20I matches.
