Yuvraj Singh, the flamboyant India Cricket star celebrate's his 34th Birthday

Yuvraj Singh who turns 34 today, has already accomplished the laurels one can achieve in a glittering cricketing career where the star batsman has led the nation to many victories in many encounters.

He is a treat to watch in the middle order building on the Indian innings, and giving it all every time he came to the crease. He is a batsmen of huge calibre. Especially the visiting teams used to be scary about him, and always used special fielding arrangements to contain the star. It was very hard to containg Yuvraj especially on the Square leg boundary, the ball simply dissappeared once he sights the ball in the slaught. It was amazing to see the natural free flow of his bat.

Yuvraj Singh won the Man of the Series tournament at the World Cup 2011 edition which India won, it was his allround performance which gave India the strategic depth to take strong teams like South Africa, Australia and Pakistan.

Recent Judgement by the Apex Court on Cricketing affairs augurs well for the sport in the country

Recent Judgement by the Supreme Court of India augurs well for the Cricket in India, as the Judgement appears to have addressed the litigation involving conflict of Interest in the sport.

Though another special committee has been formed to look into the specific allegations against players and wrongdoings, it is still a long way to go.

Also the hearing by the Supreme Court laid down clear directions for elections of the Board President of the Cricketing body.

Board has clearly directed the current Board President Mr N Srinivasan to select between the country or the club of which he is a co-owner. 

With several of the issues been addressed by the Apex Court, it should lead to transparency and efficiency in the functioning of the cricketing body.
