When India won the 2011 World Cup the two players who led the team in the final moments of their glory are Yuvraj Singh and MS Dhoni. Especially nobody can forget the joyful hug between the two of them after the winning hit. Such has been their friendship that both of them never fail to praise each other on any stage.

However, the friendship didn’t start on a good note as Yuvraj was not on good terms with Dhoni in the early days of his career. The Punjab cricketer used to taunt Dhoni on the basis of his ethnicity. He used to call him a Bihari and downplay his achievements after his each match-winning performances for the country.

At first, the former Indan skipper ignored the comments but it continued for a long time. That’s when he retorted and asked Yuvraj the real reason behind his annoying actions. Hearing this the southpaw understood his mistake and started laughing. Since then they became close friends and together they have led the team to various memorable victories.
