On the 37th commemoration of India’s 1983 World Cup triumph, Ravi Shastri accepted the open door to settle the score with Yuvraj Singh with a blow for blow answer after the last commended the success at Lord’s on his social media.
Prior, Shastri had praised the individuals from the 2011 World Cup-winning group on Twitter on the ninth commemoration of the event, just labelling Virat Kohli and Sachin Tendulkar.
Yuvraj, who won the Player-of-the-Series in the World Cup, tweeted a reply to the 58-year-old saying that the ‘senior’ could have tagged him and MS Dhoni, whose 91* proved crucial to overcoming Sri Lanka in the final, in the post.

On Thursday, Yuvraj tweeted about India’s verifiable first-since forever World Cup win in 1983 which the group had overseen in the wake of beating West Indies in the finals by 43 runs.
However, the 38-year-old did not tag any player from the 1983 squad, and Shastri pointed out to Yuvraj that he had not tagged then India captain Kapil Dev.
Hahahahaha senior ! Your a legend on and off the field 🤪👍👊🏽 Kapil Paaji was a different league altogether

Shastri Slams Back Yuvraj Singh
Thereafter, Shastri answered to Yuvraj and said that he was a legend in World Cups. The previous India all-rounder assumed an indispensable role in India’s effective crusades in the 2007 T20 World Cup and the 2011 World Cup in the sub-mainland.
Concerning the 1983 triumph, in the last, it was West Indies who won the hurl and put India in to bat first. In any case, the Kapil Dev-drove side could just put 183 on the board. In answer, West Indies were bowled out for 140 to a prevalent bowling execution by India. Mohinder Amarnath was picked as the man of the match as he scored 26 runs with the bat and got three wickets with the ball.
