Former Indian cricketer Yuvraj Singh has found himself in the middle of a controversy. Yuvraj in April took part in the Instagram Live session with Rohit Sharma. During the interaction, both Yuvraj and Rohit mocked Yuzvendra Chahal for his TikTok videos. And, during the conversation made a comment against the spinner, which has apparently not gone well with the Twitterati. Fans are now sharing the clip and have demanded an apology from the former India all-rounder. ‘We Stand Against Racism’: England Cricket Board Shares Beautiful Message About Unity in Diversity.
The full video is available on Mumbai Indians YouTube channel, but the controversial bit, which is at the start, seems to have been removed somewhat. During the session, the two cricketers talked about the youngsters and Rohit’s rise apart from other things. Back then, the comment did not grab much attention, but now some users have managed to raise the issue. #युवराज_सिंह_माफी_मांगो (Yuvraj Singh Apologise) was one of the trending hashtags on Twitter after the video went viral.

In social media circuit, Yuvraj has been in controversy many times. Recently, he was criticised for supporting Shahid Afridi’s foundation. Fans felt that Pakistan cricketer is always critical towards India and thus Yuvraj should not have supported his foundation. Afridi recently made controversial comments regarding Kashmir, and then Yuvraj along with Harbhajan Singh publicly vowed not to support Afridi in future. batting
