Yuvraj Singh’s congratulatory message for the Indian team of 1983 on the World Cup triumph in England sparked a funny conversation with current India coach Ravi Shastri.
A little over 2 months ago, Ravi Shastri had congratulated the Indian team for the 9th anniversary of their 2011 World Cup triumph but had tagged only Virat Kohli and Sachin Tendulkar.
Sachin Tendulkar had played a significant role in India’s 2nd World Cup triumph while Virat Kohli had played crucial innings in a thrilling run chase for India in the 2011 World Cup final against Sri Lanka at Mumbai’s Wankhede Stadium on April 2.
But Yuvraj Singh, who won the Player-of-the-Series for his all-round performances in the World Cup and MS Dhoni whose 91 not out helped India overcome Sri Lanka in the title clash had found no mention in Ravi Shastri’s tweet.
“Many Congratulations Guys! Something you will cherish all your life. Just like we from the 1983 group #WorldCup2011,” Ravi Shastri had written on Twitter
Yuvraj Singh was quick to point that out and he said: “Thanks senior ! U can tag me and mahi also we were also part of it (Sic).”
On June 25, Yuvraj Singh was among several India cricketers to tweet on the 37th anniversary of India’s 1st World Cup victory in England in 1983.
However, Yuvraj Singh did not tag any player from the 1983 squad and this time Ravi Shastri pointed out to Yuvraj that he had not tagged then India captain Kapil Dev.
Like Ravi Shastri, Yuvraj Singh had a ready response and said: “Hahahahaha senior! You are a legend on and off the field.. Kapil paaji was a different league altogether.
