Yuvraj Singh thanks Narendra Modi for encouraging letter

Star India cricketer Yuvraj Singh said he was honored after receiving a letter from PM Narendra Modi applauding his charity work through the YouWeCan Foundation.”It’s an absolute honor & privilege for all of us here at Youwecan to receive such an encouraging letter from Hon’ble Shri @narendramodi ji himself. We at @youwecan strongly believe that each one of us together can change the world and it’s not what you’ve got, it’s what you use that makes a difference. There is no greater reward than making someone else’s life better and making a difference in the world,” Yuvi said in an Instagram post. The initiative called ‘Youwecan Foundation’ aims to help cancer patients by spreading awareness about the disease and to rid the stigma associated with it.

A two-time World Cup winner and one of India’s finest limited overs exponent, the 35-year-old Yuvraj’s place was always under the scanner.

Yuvraj has scored over 8000 runs in 304 ODIs, apart from playing 40 Tests and 58 T20 Internationals.

The left-handed batsman failed to find a place for himself in the Indian team that is currently leading the ODI series 4-0 against Sri Lanka. The visitors thumped Lanka by 168 runs to win the fourth ODI on Thursday in Colombo.
