The former India all-rounder, who played a pivotal role in India’s 2011 World Cup triumph, was recently in news for extending support to Shahid Afridi‘s Foundation. In his tweet, Yuvraj had appealed to donate to the foundation amid the pandemic.

The primary reason behind this was Afridi’s past remarks about India, which had enraged many Indian fans. Considering the stern relations between both the countries, fans on Twitter were furious at Yuvraj for extending support to Afridi’s foundation.
