During India‘s innings against Sri Lanka in the final of the ICC World T20 2014 at the Sher-e-Bangla National stadium, Yuvraj Singh‘s struggle in the centre to get the runs coming, and scoring at a healthy strike rate caught the ire of the Twitter world. Yuvraj consumed 21 deliveries to score just 11 runs, and that too coming in a situation when India desperately needed some quick runs.

 

The likes of Lasith Malinga and Nuwan Kulasekara completely strangled him with yorkers and slower ones which he continuously failed to read. Yuvraj’s struggle also ensured that the in-form man, Virat Kohli faced just seven deliveries in the last four overs of the innings.

Yuvraj was lambasted on Twitter during his innings. Here are few of those  tweets:

 

It took Yuvraj one over to score 36 against us in the 2007 WC in SA, in today’s form it would have taken him 12 overs #T20WC #12bigovers
