The word legend is used too casually in cricket. But, not when it comes to Yuvraj Singh. Yesterday, the maestro had announced his retirement from all forms of international cricket.
After 25yrs in cricket Ive decided to move on. Cricket has given me everythin I have.ThankU 4being a part of this journey.This game taught me how to fight,how to fall,to dust off,to get up again n move forward. It has been a lovely journey. See you on the other side #SteppingOut pic.twitter.com/x3wOhoXcLv— yuvraj singh (@YUVSTRONG12) June 10, 2019
While Yuvraj's farewell speech was very emotional, it was also very obvious that he was disappointed by the way he was shutting the door on his long career.
Well, he wasn't the only one.
Soon after the Hitman's tweet, Twitter started demanding a better farewell game for Yuvraj Singh.
The Hitman says it as it is. Yuvraj did indeed deserve a better send-off. But that's sport and that's life too. https://t.co/IbGG2PyXGO— Ashok Lalla (@ashoklalla) June 11, 2019

Though he is not in Current Indian Team but he deserved a lot to retire with much more respect.
Don't do it again like we did for Rahul Dravid.
