As soon as MS Dhoni announced his retirement from international cricket on Saturday, tributes started pouring from all corners. From cricketers, fans, actors to politicians, almost everyone congratulated MS Dhoni on a stellar career in international cricket.
Surprisingly, his former teammate Yuvraj Singh is yet to react publicly. Yuvraj Singh is very active on Twitter and other social media platforms but he is yet to congratulate his former teammate. Well, news outlet Zee News decided to get in touch with him soon after Dhoni’s retirement.
They called him on his phone to get his reaction on Dhoni’s retirement but were left red-faced when the person from the other side of the call reacted. The person on the other side of the call was not Yuvraj Singh and he used the opportunity to hilariously taunt the news channel.
“Yuvraj Singh is also with us. Yuvraj, this is a very emotional moment. One of world’s greatest cricketers has said goodbye to the game,” said the news anchor.
And the response from the other side was completely hilarious as the man replied: “I am not Yuvraj Singh. You have called the wrong person. He then started laughing hilariously.
Here is the clip:
Anchor: Yuvraj Singh bhi humare sath hai. Bahut emotional karne wala pal hai. Duniya ke mahantam cricketers mein se ek jab cricket ko alvida kahte hai
Reply:Mai toh Yuvraj Singh bol he nahi rah. Aap galat bande ko le aaye. Hahaha bahut maja aaya. Aapki TRP toh kharab nhi hogyi
