Former Indian cricketer Yuvraj Singh has finally broken his silence over the backlash he received from fans after his tweet over helping former Pakistan cricket captain Shahid Afridi's foundation in the fight against coronavirus. On Tuesday, Yuvraj Singh had posted a video on Twitter over his contribution to the Shahid Afridi Foundation. He even tagged his former Indian teammate and friend Harbhajan Singh, who had earlier asked cricketers to come forward and help the needy people. Harbhajan Singh, in his video, had tagged Yuvraj Singh, Wasim Akram and Shoaib Akhtar and requested them to spread awareness.
Yuvraj Singh, in his recent tweet, had written that during such testing times (coronavirus), people should be looking out for each other, especially the ones who are less fortunate.

Never saw you appeal to donate for PMCares or PM Relied Fund, while you jumped on the first opportunity to promote a Pak charity. You have lost all the respect!— Mogambo (@Happy_Mogambo) April 1, 2020
