It will be a historic moment for the stylish left-handed batsman when India will come out to play against Bangladesh in the second semi-final of the Champions Trophy 2017.

Interestingly, Yuvraj had made his ODI debut for India in Champions Trophy 2000 against Australia and scored a match winning half-century in the debut game.

The south-paw made a comeback on the cricket pitch after getting diagnosed with cancer and fighting it successfully.

When he was asked about his landmark 300th ODI appearance, Yuvraj said, "I am alive and that is the biggest thing for me."

"I don't want to talk about my regrets when I am in a good zone. I am playing well and would continue for a few more years. As long as I am performing, I would like to play," Yuvraj said, making it clear that the 2019 World Cup is still in his mind.

The elegant left-hander feels getting India jersey may not be very difficult, but wearing it for 17 years, demands determination of a different level along with copious amount of self belief.

Several cricketers took to Twitter to congratulate Yuvraj on his 300th ODI appearance.
