Hazel Keech wasn’t too pleased that Yuvraj Singh did not get a chance to bat for the second match.
Sydney: India’s 2011 World Cup hero Yuvraj Singh played an important part with the ball to script his team’s win on Friday during the second T20 with the wicket of Australian all-rounder Glenn Maxwell.
Yuvraj’s introduction into the attack by skipper MS Dhoni was a timely one. Under pressure, Yuvi put the brakes on the run-flow and gave away just seven runs during his two-over spell at an economy rate of 3.50.
But what was interesting to notice here was Yuvi’s fiancé, Bollywood actress Hazel Keech, wasn’t too pleased that Yuvi did not get a chance to bat for the second match.
Taking to micro-blogging site Twitter, Hazel asked as to why Yuvi wasn’t sent out to bat in the middle despite picked in the playing XI.
This didn’t go down well with some of her followers and within no time after her tweet, they began to troll her. Hazel immediately deleted her post after the backlash.
It didn’t end there. Some of her followers even compared the B-Town chick to Yuvi’s father Yograj, who has repeatedly hit out at ODI skipper MS Dhoni for the injustice done to his son.
Other followers informed the actor that it would take some time for the World Cup winner to hit form at the international level. “How would people know till he is even given a chance?” Hazel answered.
She went on to delete that tweet as well.
“Yuvi have had just one net session, which is why I promoted myself ahead of Yuvraj,” said Dhoni after the first T20I win.
With both Suresh Raina and Yuvraj not getting enough time in the middle, with the series in their pocked, Team India are expected to promote their batting order to get some practice with the Asia Cup and the big ICC World T20 approaching near.
