Like many other cricketers, former India all-rounder Yuvraj Singh is currently spending time at home during the lockdown. At a time when the whole world is battling against COVID-19 outbreak, India is currently under lockdown to keep the situation under control.
Yuvraj has been quite active on social media amid the pandemic and he was recently in the limelight for introducing ‘keep it up’ challenge. The all-rounder had posted a video of himself on Instagram where he kept the bouncing the ball on the side of his bat.
Furthermore, he had also nominated Rohit Sharma, Sachin Tendulkar and Harbhajan Singh to take the challenge and the trend spread like a wildfire across social media. Many cricketers joined the challenge and added a unique twist in their videos.
With no cricket activity, players are trying their best to entertain fans in such trying times. Yuvraj entertained the fans yet again as shared an Instagram story where a fan can be seen standing with a poster, providing three options to end batting problems of Team India.
“Call Yuvi, WhatsApp Yuvi and Wait for Yuvi jr,” the fan had written on his poster. Yuvraj Singh shared the photo with a laughing emoji on his Instagram story.
Yuvraj recently had a chat with Kevin Pietersen
Yuvraj, after donning the India jersey for 17 years, announced his retirement from international cricket back in June last year. Known as one of the most explosive batsmen, Yuvraj represented the national side in 304 ODI where he amassed 8701 runs and scalped 111 wickets. He also went on to play 58 T20Is where he smashed 1177 runs at a strike rate of 136.66.
Amid the lockdown, Yuvraj recently had a chat with former England batsman Kevin Pietersen where he had revealed that his email address still has the word ‘pie chucker’ in it. Pietersen, after getting out to Yuvraj at many a time, had termed the left-hander ‘a pie chucker’.
“My email address still has the word “pie chucker” in it, I laughed so much when you described me as a pie chucker for my bowling style. I made an email id and included the word pie chucker in that and it is my favourite email address. Sometimes, even my friends go like, hey how are you pie chucker,” Yuvraj had said.
