Yuvraj Singh has become quite active on social media ever since announcing his retirement from international and domestic cricket. The legendary batsman brought down curtains on his illustrious international career last month after not receiving any sort of backing from the national team. Yuvraj did get a chance to revive his career in 2017 but he failed to perform consistently.
The southpaw will always be remembered for rising to the big occasion whenever India needed him. Whether it was his 84-run knock against the formidable Aussies in just his second ODI or his heroics in the NatWest series World T20 and the 2011 World Cup, Yuvraj rarely disappointed on big occasions.
In the 2007 World T20, he hit Stuart Broad for six sixes in an over during India’s Super 8 match against England. Yuvraj didn’t stop there as he demolished an Australian attack in the semi-final by scoring 70 off just 30 balls. India had gone on to beat Pakistan to lift the trophy.
Four years later, he played a huge role in ending India’s 28-year-long wait for the biggest prize in world cricket – the Cricket World Cup. He scored 362 runs, including a century against the West Indies in Chennai, and picked up 15 wickets to bag the Man of the Tournament award. Yuvraj ended his career with an outstanding ODI record of 8701 runs in addition to picking up 111 wickets.
Well, the World Cup-winning star is making the most of his time away from cricket. He has been very busy on social media. In his latest activity, Yuvraj Singh hilariously pulled Harbhajan Singh and Shane Warne’s legs. It all started with Harbhajan Singh posting a picture of himself and Warne on Instagram, writing:
“Magician bowler @shanewarne23 Good to see you yesterday.”
Sensing an opportunity to have a laugh at the expense of his former teammate, Yuvraj Singh hilariously wrote:
“Legends of spinning the ball and hitting the rough areas consistently on and off the field.”
Harbhajan was quick to reply to Yuvraj’s message. However, the veteran spinner did not have any good lines to make a comeback and he just wrote: “paaaaaji”
