But soon, the fans realised that the former World Cup-winner was standing up for a noble cause like he has all his life and the flak turned into applause as fans started supporting the cricketer and #IstandwithYuvi starting trending.
Here is how fans showed support to Yuvraj Singh.
Recently, Yuvraj Singh revealed that the most memorable times of his cricket career came under Sourav Ganguly and that the former left-hander’s support was unparalleled, something which he never experienced under MS Dhoni or even Virat Kohli.
Having last played for India in June 2017 in an ODI against West Indies, Yuvraj announced his retirement from international cricket on June 10.
