After reports suggesting that failing the ‘Yo-Yo’ endurance test was the reason behind Yuvraj Singh’s ouster from the team for the ongoing series in Sri Lanka emerged last week, the veteran batsman took to Instagram to post a photo of his chiseled body perhaps to send a reminder to the selectors but little did he know that he would end up getting trolled by none other than his own teammates.
Reports suggested that for the current Indian team, the acceptable ‘Yo-Yo’ score is 19.5 and upwards. But Yuvraj managed to just 16, which was speculated to be the reason for his ouster.
The reports were, however, quashed by chief selector MSK Prasad who insisted that the World Cup-winning star was rested and not dropped.
“Yuvraj has been rested,” Prasad had said last week.“Doors are never closed on anybody. Everybody has got a right to play cricket. It’s their passion. They are chasing their passion. In terms of selection, we try to select the best possible team.
Well, only time will tell whether the southpaw is still in the mix of things or not but he probably tried to send out a message to the selectors that he is still fit as he posted a photo of bare upper body on Instagram with the captain “mood”.
But as soon as the batsman posted the message, two of his national teammates Rohit Sharma and Harbhajan Singh jumped into action to pull his legs. While Harbhajan compared Yuvraj with Bollywood actor Salman Khan, Rohit Sharma wanted to know what the left-handed batsman meant with his caption.
