Internet Desk: India’s veteran left hand batsman Yuvraj Singh today said that it was a huge honour for him to receive a letter from PM Narendra Modi in which he applauded Yuvraj’s charity work through his YouWeCan Foundation. It’s an absolute honor for all of us here at @YOUWECAN to receive such an encouraging letter from Hon’ble Shri @narendramodi ji,” Yuvi said in a twitter post.

The power hitter from Punjab was not picked for India’s limited overs tour to Sri Lanka too.
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.
After a 50 against Pakistan in the Champions Trophy opener, Yuvraj hardly did anything notable as his last seven ODI innings fetched him only 162 runs.
A senior BCCI official, who is privy to selection policy said that Yuvraj is no longer in contention for the 2019 World Cup in England and Wales.
Yuvraj has scored over 8000 runs in 304 ODIs, apart from playing 40 Tests and 58 T20 Internationals.
