Ok Yuvi, so you know we all love you for your 5 wicket haul and unbeaten 50 against the now oh-so-mighty Irish, but gloating about your fitness is just pressing it.
Yuvraj’s foot-in-mouth moment came during his post-match press conference. When asked about how things have improved for him since about a year ago, he said “I’m trying really hard. I’ve had a year filled with injuries and not great form. I don’t look back, I look forward. I’m much fitter now” More fit than what? The MRF blimp??
Yuvraj is now under threat of being mistaken for Ramesh Powar and his very visible paunch has also been getting panned on Twitter:
@diogeneb: A majority of my TL believes Yuvraj is pregnant. It's only apt that he should get MOM award
And this after he aided Kohli’s run out:
@arhemant: It seems the only way to get Yuvraj Singh to run faster is to put a burger at the non-striker's end.
Dorothy_WalshThe Irish team has a small contingent of family, friends and well-wishers travelling along with the team throughout their World Cup campaign to support their boys. Most of them arrived together at the Chinnaswamy in a bus and looked in complete awe of the number of people trying to enter the stadium for the clash.
He may not be part of India’s ODI squad anymore but Rahul Dravid is still at work this World Cup. We spotted him at the stadium in his new role as KSCA Managing Committee member and he also made an appearance on the field during the break for a prize distribution ceremony.
