The deadly second wave of the coronavirus in India might be showing signs of decline with a drastic decrease in the number of cases but people Yuvraj Singh have continued with their relief work to help the battered healthcare system of the country.

The Southpaw from Punjab, who made his international debut in an ODI match against Kenya in October 2000, went on to play 304 ODIs, 40 Tests, and 58 T20Is for Team India.
