Fans were quick to spot the names of the then India skipper MS Dhoni and Player of the tournament Yuvraj Singh missing. They started pointing it out and soon, Yuvraj came up with a satire where he referred to Shastri as ‘senior’ and asked him to tag Dhoni and himself.
The current India coach responded to Yuvraj Singh and said he is no junior when it comes to the World Cup. His response read, “When it comes to World Cups, you are no Junior. Tussi Legend Ho.”
Chasing 275 against Sri Lanka, the hosts lost their openers Sachin Tendulkar and Virender Sehwag early to Lasith Malinga. Gautam Gambhir’s 97, and more importantly his century stand with MS Dhoni, who remained unbeaten on 97 and also hit the winning runs got India back on track. India won the match by six wickets.
