Indian all-rounder Yuvraj Singh‘s house in Chandigarh was attacked on late Sunday night as angry fans pelted stones at it, after India suffered a disappointing six-wicket defeat to Sri Lanka in the final of the ICC World T20 2014, at Dhaka. According to reports in TV news chanels, Yuvraj’s house was attacked after he scored a painstaking 21- ball 11 and India lost the game.

India managed to post a moderate total of 130 for four against Sri Lanka in the summit clash, and were beaten by six wickets with Kumar Sangakkara scoring a fine unbeaten half-century.

With Virat Kohli going great guns on one end, Yuvraj Singh huffed and puffed against Sri Lanka in the ICC World T20 2014 final after Indian skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni promoted Yuvraj up the over in the hope of clearing the ropes in the death overs.

Yuvraj struggled to get bat on ball right from the word go. Virat, meanwhile was creaming Nuwan Kulasekera and  Yuvraj wilted under pressure  struggled with his timing. Yuvraj’s miseries hampered the batting rhythm completely in the last few overs by keeping the Delhi dasher away from the strike.

With a world of experience and cricketing abilities that the gifted to players once in a generation, Yuvraj’s painstaking stay at the crease which yielded a mere 11 of 21 caught the ire of Indian fans, especially the ones on Twitter. The dressing room which was dancing in the isles when Virat was blazing away wore a stunned and often frustrated look with the Punjab man at the crease in the final overs.
