For everyone who grew up watching Sachin Tendulkar, Sourav Ganguly and their dreamy Indian cricket squad playing, Monday was emotional. After an elaborate career in international cricket for nearly two decades, Yuvraj Singh announced his retirement through a press conference. "My career started in 2000 and it has been 19 years.
