27 is the number of matches that Yuvraj Singh has played in World T20. He is second in the list of Indian cricketers with most appearances in World T20 after MS Dhoni’s 28 matches.
Yuvraj Singh and MS Dhoni began the World T20 journey together from 2007 and since then, they have been inseparable. They were part of the Indian playing XI that won the inaugural edition in 2007 in South Africa. They have been part of each and every edition since then. They form a lethal pair in the Indian line-up in World T20.
While MS Dhoni has played the most number of matches as skipper (28) in World T20, Yuvraj is the second most capped Indian player in this tournament (27 matches) after his ‘Captain Cool’.
Yuvraj Singh is also the second highest run-getter for India in World T20 with 541 runs in 27 matches at an average of 25.76 with four fifties.
The list is headed by Rohit Sharma who has scored 585 runs at an average of 48.75 with 6 fifties in 23 matches.
