Sport360 staff 14/06/2017

Yuvraj Singh, since making his one-day international (ODI) debut in 2000, has been one of India's biggest match-winners in the 50-over format of the game.

As Yuvraj is all set to play in his 300th ODI match, we have a look at his career so far (which can be seen in the gallery above).

So far in his ODI career, the 35-year-old has played 299 matches, scoring 8622 runs at an average of 36.84 and a strike rate of 87.81 with 14 centuries. He has also made useful contributions with the ball and in the field, with 111 wickets and 93 catches to his name.

He was named as the Player of the Tournament when India won the ICC Cricket World Cup in 2011.

One must note that this won’t be his 300th ODI for India though, as he played three matches for Asia XI in 2007.

Where do you rank Yuvraj among India's greatest players in ODI cricket?

Everyone expects Yuvraj Singh to perform miracles on the cricket pitch. But the batsman thinks his powers go beyond the field.

In a hilarious video uploaded on the India cricketer’s Facebook page, Yuvraj discovers the ability to magically open doors, and is clearly delighted with himself.

We have Virat Kohli to thank for the video, not to mention Yuvraj’s own imagination.

Man in charge: Kumble.

Anil Kumble’s term as India coach looks set to be extended until the end of the West Indies tour next month, a top official has confirmed.

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) advertised for a head coach in May with Kumble’s one-year deal due to expire at the end of the Champions Trophy in England this week.

With the first one-day international in the West Indies just 10 days away, Kumble is in the mix for the post along with former India opening batsman Virender Sehwag and Australian coach Tom Moody, according to media reports.

But BCCI official Vinod Rai said a special panel overseeing the selection was yet to decide if someone else will take the reins.

“Since it has got delayed, Anil Kumble, subject to his acceptance, will be there till the West Indies tour,” Rai, who is chairman of the Committee of Administrators, told reporters on Monday.

India will play five one-day internationals in the Caribbean starting June 23, with a Twenty20 international wrapping up the trip on July 9.

Rumours of a rift between Indian skipper Virat Kohli and Kumble were reported to be behind the BCCI throwing open the position.

Former India greats Sachin Tendulkar, Sourav Ganguly and VVS Laxman have been tasked with selecting the next coach.

Rai, whose special committee was assigned by the Supreme Court to oversee the scandal-ridden cricket board, dismissed allegations of a spat between Kumble and Kohli.

“There is no question of any controversy… We discussed with Kohli, we discussed with Kumble and neither of them confirmed to what has come out of media reports,” said Rai.

Rai’s committee has also been dogged by controversy. One of its high-profile members, historian Ramachandra Guha, resigned earlier this month, citing the committee’s mishandling of the Kumble situation.
