Former India batsman Mohammad Kaif has thrown his weight behind under fire Yuvraj Singh by saying that the stone pelting incident on the south-paw’s house was unwarranted for and also called for fans to behave in a more ‘sporting ‘ manner.

Kaif who has had a similar such experience in the past when irate fans threw stones at his house following India’s dismal performance in the early stages of the 2003 World Cup, appealed fans to stay calm and maintained that Yuvraj should not be solely held responsible for the loss, reports Mid-Day.

“Whatever has happened is sad. This shouldn’t have happened. No player wants to perform badly. Every player goes out there to give his best, but it is just that sometimes it does not click. They [fans] give us enormous love, but I feel the fans should also try and balance it out. In these tough times they should behave in a mature way,” said Kaif.

Yuvraj, who has been the victim of fans ire after his slow batting robbed India a chance of posting a competitive total against Sri Lanka in the ICC World T20 final at Dhaka, had a miserable time with the bat against Lasith Malinga and co and also failed to give in-form Virat Kohli the strike on numerous occasions.

After all that has happened since India’s loss to Sri Lanka, heavy security has been deployed at Yuvraj’s residence and the left-hander may surely hope there would not be an encore of such behaviour by fans if India crashes to another disappointing defeat in the near future.
