How brands reacted to Yuvraj Singh bidding adieu to cricket
On Moday, cricketer Yuvaraj Singh announced that he would retire from first class cricket, bringing an end to an illustrious cricket career. Popularly and fondly known as Yuvi, the cricketer announced his retirement at a press briefing. He also added that he had turned town the opportunity to play a retirement match. However, fans and fellow cricketers feel that the veteran cricketer deserves a proper farewell and flooded social media with the top trending hashtag: #YuviDeservesProperFarewell.
Brands will also miss Yuvi playing on the pitch as he was one of the most bankable and popular cricketers to ever play on the field. He was the 6th highest paid sportsperson in India and has endorsed heavyweight brands such as LG, Puma, Revital, OPPO, Birla Sun Life Insurance, and Honda.
During his long career, Yuvraj Singh met with success and failure in fair measure. His battle with cancer and surviving it with grace and courage saw him become a motivational speaker, which also made headlines in the media.
In 2011, he came under suspicion of a spot fixing scandal without proof due to the unfounded comments of a Pakistani reporter. However, his name was soon cleared of the dark clouds created by the scandal.
The loss of Yuvi to the Indian cricket team will be another blow to their leading ranks.
Adgully has compiled a list of brands who commemorated Yuvi’s retirement.
