Six Sixes! One of the most inspirational and hard working cricketers, a true fighter, the prince of Indian cricket, the nametags can keep coming as Yuvraj Singh turns 36 today and the cricket fraternity wishes the Punjabi swashbuckler on his birthday. Many cricketers took to Twitter to wish Yuvraj which includes the likes of Virender Sehwag, Suresh Raina, Shikhar Dhawan, Parthiv Patel and many more.
The 36-year old's birthday will memorable for him as he recently celebrated his first anniversary as a married man and was conferred with a doctorate by the Gwalior University. Known as a match winner, the prince of Indian cricket looks to bounce back from the failures he has endured in recent times.
Yuvraj has recently cleared the Yo-Yo test, a test which is required to pass to make it into the Indian team. The 36-year old had failed the test a few times and that's one of the reasons why he was not included in recent tours that India travelled to and hosted. Yuvraj last represented India when the Men in Blue travelled to the Caribbean islands and won the ODI series against West Indies. Yuvraj's form has recently dripped but he aims to make a comeback into the squad in time to come.
Here are the wishes from the Indian team players for Yuvraj Singh on his 36th birthday.
