Former Indian all-rounder Yuvraj Singh announced his international retirement in 2019. The cricketer was an integral member of 2011 World Cup-winning Indian squad where he was also adjudged as ‘Player of the Tournament’. In the 2011 World Cup final, the stylish left-hander remained not out with MS Dhoni in a successful run-chase that helped Indian team lift the World Cup after a gap of 28 years. On the ninth anniversary of India’s 2011 World Cup final on Thursday, Singh took to Twitter and commemorated the occasion with a nostalgic post.

Amidst recollecting the 2011 World Cup final glory, Yuvraj Singh faced much flak from fans on the microblogging site. While some hailed the cricketer for his 2011 heroics, others slammed him for supporting the Shahid Afridi Foundation to fight the coronavirus crisis in Pakistan recently alongside Harbhajan Singh. The limited-overs specialist recently donated to the foundation and also urged his fans and followers to do the same. His tweet immediately backfired as several Indian users asked him to support India's coronavirus relief efforts instead.
