Yuvraj Singh is an active personality on social media
Yuvraj has always been an active person on social media. He keeps stating his opinions and views on social matters happening around the world. He is an expert figure while taking a dig at fellow teammates’ posts and pictures. His funny statements and comments catch too much attention in the social media world. In the recent turn of events, he even stated his stance on his father’s controversial statements over ongoing farmer protests in the country.
“I am saddened and upset by the statements made by Mr. Yograj Singh. I wish to clarify that his remarks have been made in an individual capacity, and my ideologies are not the same in any manner. I also urge everyone to continue taking precautions to fight against Covid-19. The pandemic is not over yet, and we need to continue to be careful to defeat the virus completely.”
Yuvraj Singh is fondly remembered for his never-dying spirit that he displayed while playing the 2011 World Cup for India. He was puking blood and still stood bold enough to play for India like a hero. He was later diagnosed with cancer and went abroad for his treatment.
