Days after launching his NFT collection in partnership with Colexion, former Indian cricket team all-rounder Yuvraj Singh has now announced his partnership with 1xBet professional sportsblog. 

Yuvraj Singh, who also acts as a brand ambassador of the fantasy sports app Howzat, said he was excited to be a part of the new venture. “I am happy to announce my new association with 1xBet Professional Sportsblog,” the World Cup-winner said. 

“We are happy to announce the official partnership between 1xBet Professional Sportsblog and cricket star Yuvraj Singh,” read the official statement from 1xBet Professional Sportsblog.

Yuvraj Singh retired from international cricket in June 2019, ending an illustrious career that spanned close to 19 years. During this time, the southpaw featured in 304 ODIs, 40 Tests and 58 T20Is.

The all-rounder also won several major international trophies during his career, including the U19 and senior World Cups, the T20 World Cup and the Champions Trophy. Yuvraj Singh was also part of the Sunrisers Hyderabad team which won the Indian T20 League in 2016.

During the inaugural T20 World Cup in 2007, Yuvraj Singh became only the second player to hit six sixes in an over in international cricket. He was also diagnosed with cancer back in 2011 but beat the disease and returned to playing cricket at the highest level for several more years.

Roping in Yuvraj Singh for their sportsblog is a massive coup for a company that has entered the Indian market with the aim of establishing a strong foothold. 

In that regard, the association is certain to gather steam given how adored the former all-rounder is in the country.
