The original switch hits @kp24,” he wrote as caption to the submit.

During the 2008 Test collection between India and England, Pietersen known as Yuvraj a pir chucker after he received out to the left arn spinner’.
“When the ball is swinging and seaming and you’ve got a guy like Zaheer Khan, who is one of the best bowlers I’ve ever faced, not bowling at you and you’ve got a pie-chucker like Yuvraj Singh bowling at you I really don’t mind. When you get left-arm filth like that it makes you feel really good,” Pietersen had stated.
India’s workforce tradition drew extreme criticism from World Cup-winning former all-rounder Yuvraj Singh, who advised ODI vice-captain Rohit Sharma that there aren’t sufficient position fashions within the facet, which lacks a way of respect for the seniors and is susceptible to being distracted by social media.
The two had been in dialog throughout an instagram dwell chat on Tuesday evening. The context of Yuvraj’s remark was Rohit’s query on the distinction between the present workforce and those by which the swashbuckling left-hander turned up.
“When I came into the team or when you (Rohit) came into the team, our seniors were very disciplined. Obviously there was no social media so there were no distractions,” stated Yuvraj.
“There was a certain behaviour that we boys had to carry, how they talk to people, how they talk to media. Because they were the ambassadors of the game and India.” But it’s not the identical anymore, feels Yuvraj. “So that is what I had told you guys. After playing for India, you have to be more careful about your image. But I feel the third generation. There are only you two seniors, Virat and you, who are playing all the formats, rest of the guys are coming and going,” he stated.
“I just feel there are very few guys to look up to and I feel that a sense of respect towards seniors, that has become a thin line now. Koi bhi kisiko kuch bhi keh deta hai (anyone can say anything to anyone),” stated Yuvraj.
