Want to be a professional cricketer?
India batting Yuvraj Singh, it seems, is just not ready to accept the fact that there can be someone who can look like him. Earlier this week, the World Cup-winning star joined the elite club consisting of former India skippers Sachin Tendulkar, Sourav Ganguly, Rahul Dravid and Mohammad Azharuddin when he had stepped out on the field during India’s Champions Trophy semifinal clash against Bangladesh as it was his 300th One-Day International game.
But a brief period of time on that memorable day for the 35-year old was stolen by another man who bore an uncanny resemblance to the southpaw. Sporting a similar beard, wearing Indian jersey and reflectors, Yuvraj’s doppelganger had caused quite a stir outside the stadium. The fan even had a photograph clicked with Yuvraj who looked quite amused posing alongside his doppelganger for a photograph.
The BCCI had posted a photo of the duo sharing a smile outside the stadium after India thrashed Bangladesh to enter the final of the tournament.

However, Yuvraj was not ready to accept that his doppelganger was his second version and had replied: “No chance.”
No chance 🤣

But apart from Yuvraj, everyone agreed with BCCI’s tweet and one of them was India tennis star, Sania Mirza. Retweeting the post, Sania wrote:“Same!!!! ??♀️?? @YUVSTRONG12.”

However, the Indian cricketer is still not ready to accept it and has given an interesting reply to Sania. Calling Sania Mirchi which means Chilly, Yuvraj tweeted:“Eh no’ Mirchi.”
Eh no' Mirchi

Meanwhile, India will take on arch-rivals Pakistan in the final of the Champions Trophy on Sunday (June 18).
