NOTTINGHAM, June 11: India opener Rohit Sharma hailed Yuvraj Singh�s roller-coaster career and said the stylish southpaw deserved a better send-off after 17 years of top-flight cricket.

�You don�t know what you got till its gone. Love you brotherman. You deserved a better send off,� wrote the Indian vice-captain on Twitter.

Yuvraj played 40 Tests, 304 ODIs and 58 T20Is for India. He put together 1900 runs in the longest format, and 8701 in the one-dayers, the format in which he enjoyed most success. His one-day runs tally places him 22nd in the overall list, and seventh among Indians. He is among the Indian greats who did not get a farewell game after contemporaries Virender Sehwag, Rahul Dravid, VVS Laxman and Gautam Gambhir.

After he announced his retirement in Mumbai on Monday, Yuvraj revealed that he was promised a farewell game by the BCCI provided he failed the �Yo Yo� fitness test. However, he passed it and the swansong never happened.

The 37-year-old last played for India in June 2017.

Former captain Sourav Ganguly, under whom Yuvraj enjoyed plenty of success, wrote on the social networking site, �Dear Yuv.. Every good thing comes to an end.. I tell u this was a marvellous thing.. U were like my brother very dear.. And now after u finish even dearer.. The entire country will be proud of u. Love u lots.. Fantastic career.� � PTI
