Former Indian all-rounder Yuvraj Singh Criticise has found himself at the end of tons of social-media criticism because of a Tweet he made after the third Test between India and England. The Indians went 2-1 up in the four-match Test series with a dominating win against the visitors in the 3rd Test. The pink-ball Test match ended in just 2 days, thanks to the spinning pitch in the new Narendra Modi stadium.
INS vs ENG 3rd Test: What Did Yuvraj Singh Say?
Many experts blamed the badly-made pitch for England’s poor stint against India. However, some of them, including Indian batsmen Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma, backed the pitch as they claimed it to be a decent one. On the other hand, Yuvraj Singh was very critical of the pitch at the Ahemdabad stadium. He penned down a tweet stating that Indian legends like Anil Kumble and Harbhajan Singh would have clinched 1000 and 800 wickets respectively if they bowled in such pitches.
He further stated that a match ending in 2 days is not good for Test cricket. However, he ended his post by congratulating Indian spinners Ravichandran Ashwin and Axar Patel, who propelled well in the match. He also sent his good wishes to pacer Ishant Sharma, who featured in his 100th Test for India.

IND vs ENG 3rd Test: Netizens slam Yuvraj Singh
The veteran Indian cricketer was a little insensitive with his words as he took all the credits from the Indian bowlers, who performed extremely well in both innings. Indian fans were seemingly unhappy with Yuvraj Singh’s inconsiderate Tweet. The netizens were seen thrashing the Indian legend for his uncanny approach towards the third Test.
You scored 36 in an over once but same English cricket team dint complain about the pitch 🤷🏻♂️

After getting retired, didn’t expect such ridiculous tweet / comments from Yuvraj ji. India performed outstandingly in 2nd test & 3rd test. Ashwin is an outstanding bowler who is far much better than Bhajji Paaji & Kumble Sir because of his batting ability. @sachin_rt @imVkohli

There’s no taking away credit from how Ashwin played but when you are praising someone for their performance in the past 2 matches atleast give credit to akshar and rohit too… Anyways you seem to be a fanboy
He isn’t greater then Kumble sir or Bhajji get your facts right dude
