Ace Indian batsman Yuvraj Singh has found himself in the middle of a police complaint for a statement he passed on 8 months ago. In June 2020, while indulging in a conversation with Rohit Sharma on Instagram live, Yuvraj Singh facing arrest used the word ‘Bhangi’ while describing the actions of Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav.
Yuvraj Singh’s words got him into big trouble as his insensitive statement didn’t go well with some section of the Indian community. Nevertheless, the southpaw released a statement while appologizing for his unintended words.
What did Yuvraj Singh say?
“Yeh bh*ngi log ko kaam nahi hai yeh Yuzi aur isko (Kuldeep),” Yuvraj had said. “Yuzi ko dekha kya video daala hai apni family ke saath. Maine usko wahi bola ki apne baap ko nacha raha hai, pagal toh nahi hai tu,” Rohit replied.
