New Delhi: Discarded Indian cricketer Yuvraj Singh on Sunday appealed the Indian cricket fans to respect the personal life of Indian vice-captain Virat Kohli who has been under the scanner since his failure in the semi-final match against Australia in ICC World Cup 2015.
Yuvraj, who was one of the senior cricketers to have been left out of India’s 15-man World Cup squad, appealed the fans to respect Kohli’s personal life. The comment came after social-media went viral with several jokes on Bollywood actress Anushka Sharma, who was present at the Sydney Cricket Ground to watch the semi-final.
The southpaw further reminded the fans of Virat’s good show on Australian soil where he had slammed five centuries. Yuvi was also confident that Virat will soon find his form back and will do well for India again.
Virat came under attack soon after he was dismissed for just 1 in the semifinal against Australia. Things became bizarre when Anushka, who had gone to cheer for the team, was slammed for being in Australia.
The Bollywood fraternity took to the micro-blogging to extend its support to the actress and dismiss the allegations by outraged cricket fans that were of the opinion that her presence brought bad luck for Virat and the team.
