Yuvraj Singh has been one of India's greatest cricketers of all time. The veteran all-rounder who had announced his retirement from international cricket earlier this year now continues to play franchise cricket. Yuvraj was a key member of India's historic triumphs in the ICC World T20 2007 and ICC Cricket World Cup 2011. He was adjudged Player of the Tournament in the 2011 edition for his outstanding all-round performance. It has been a few months since Yuvi has stepped down from international cricket but he does not mind in having fun when it comes to remembering hilarious incidents during his playing days.
Yuvraj Singh had posted a tweet where he had recollected the exact words spoken by then Indian skipper Sourav Ganguly when he had scolded Dinesh Karthik during a high-octane clash against arch-rivals Pakistan. He had posted the tweet after having watched Dinesh Karthik's recent interview with Gaurav Kapoor.
During a talk show hosted by Gaurav Kapoor who is also a cricket analyst, Dinesh Karthik revealed the incident which led the then captain Sourav Ganguly to blast at him during the 2004 Champions Trophy where India were playing Pakistan in a must-win match.
"So this was in 2004 Champions Trophy. Dada (Sourav Ganguly) was captain. I was 18-19 years old. I wasn't a part of the playing 11", said Dinesh Karthik recollecting the incident.
Karthik then added that as a substitute when one wicket had fallen, he took water and went on the field. He knew he wanted to stop but the grass did not allow him to stop and he was not able to break either.
"So I just banged into Dada and he went 2-3 steps ahead. Then Dada turns at me and says aise logo ko kidhar kidhar se laatein hai re? Kaun hain re yeh? (Where do you get these guys from?)
Here's the video of Dinesh Karthik narrating about that hilarious incident.
