Yuvraj Singh announced his retirement from international and first-class cricket earlier this week which left his fans stunned. Ever since then, the ‘Thank You’ messages flooded for him on social media. Predominantly, Yuvraj’s contribution to India’s two World Cup victories in 2007 and 2011 were highlighted by many. Like many, even Shikhar Dhawan also thanked Yuvi for all the memories. Though there was nothing attention seeking in the message from the southpaw, Dhawan’s tribute post has gone viral thanks to Bangladesh’s Soumya Sarkar.
These days, very few things go unnoticed on social media as the gimmicks are following their favourite cricketers closely. Like many current and former cricketers, Soumya Sarkar also recalled playing against Yuvraj Singh and posted a picture with him after the latter announced his retirement. He also wrote a message for the 37-year-old and thanked him for the memories.
But Sarkar had copied Shikhar Dhawan‘s message which has raised the eyebrows of many. Though the whole tweet wasn’t copied, the part of it was copied as it is.
“Thank you, Yuvi paaji. You are one of the best left-handed batsmen I have ever seen.I always looked up to your style & batting technique, have learnt so much from you. Wish you prosperity & success in your new journey,” Sarkar’s message on his Facebook account read.
Here’s Dhawan’s post:
Thank you, Yuvi paaji for all the guidance, support & love. ♥ You are one of the best left-handed batsmen I have come across. I always looked up to your style & batting technique, have learnt so much from you! Wish you prosperity & success in your new journey. Rab rakha ???????? pic.twitter.com/AQH4LkgS0Q

Sarkar in England playing the World Cup
As far as Soumya Sarkar is concerned, he is currently in England playing in the ongoing World Cup. He has opened the innings along with Tamim Iqbal and apart from the game against South Africa, the duo hasn’t been able to provide a good start to the team. He has so far scored only 69 runs in three outings at an average of 23. The left-hander needs to be consistent enough in his trade.
Bangladesh, at the moment, is at the seventh position in the points table after playing four matches. While they were blown away by England, the Tigers missed out against Sri Lanka courtesy of the rain and now will hope to stitch a few more wins in the latter stages of the tournament.
