The post, till now, has got more than four lakh likes. Former Indian cricketer Harbhajan Singh has also commented on the post, saying, “Free call?”. Replying to Bhajji, Yuvraj said, “@harbhajan3 calling card Sri Lanka to India! Hanji mata I’ve reached and Ashu probably saying Abbey Sunn @rd.nehra I’ve reached. An main match ke baad phone karunga chase bye”.
Actress Neha Dhupia too has commented on the much viral photo, saying “This is one of the coolest images I have seen in a long time”.
Yuvraj Singh reveals the relationship with IPL franchise KXIP
Yuvraj Singh has opened up on his time with the IPL franchise Kings XI Punjab saying he didn’t have a good experience of playing for them and wanted to leave them.
Yuvraj, fresh from his exploits at the 2007 ICC World T20 in South Africa, was one of the five cricketers to be given the status of ‘icon players’ for the inaugural season of IPL. After a superb first season where he led KXIP to the semi-finals as captain, he left the franchise in 2011 for the newly introduced Pune Warriors India.
“One place I wanted to run away was KXIP,” Yuvraj said on YouTube channel Sportscreen. “Every time I wanted a player, they did not give me. It was amazing when I left they had bought the same players. I was just like captain for the sake of it. I loved playing for Punjab but wanted to get away from that franchise.”
Yuvraj went on to play for PWI, Royal Challengers Bangalore, Delhi Daredevils, Sunrisers Hyderabad and finally Mumbai Indians. He won IPL titles with SRH and MI before announcing his international retirement in 2018.
