Former Indian all-rounder, Yuvraj Singh, who is representing Maratha Arabians in the Abu Dhabi T10 League, made his teammate Chadwick Walton from the West Indies speak in Punjabi after his team defeated Team Abu Dhabi on Monday. In the video posted by Yuvraj on Instagram, Chadwick Walton can be seen attempting to speak in Punjabi and later bursting out in laughter.
Yuvraj captioned the video as, “Nice punjabi bro @chadwick59. oh chal yaar chaliye”. Out-of-favour Indian batsman Suresh Raina could not stop his laughter after watching the video as he commented, “Hahaha” on it, while former India fast bowler Praveen Kumar also burst out laughing and commented, “Hahaha…jatt power”.
Maratha Arabians have won their two matches against Team Abu Dhabi and Qalandars respectively. In Group B, Maratha Arabians lead the points table after two victories from three matches, with Qalandars at the second position with one win.
However, Yuvraj Singh has failed to make a mark for the Maratha Arabians, as he only managed to score 6 and 14 runs in the previous two matches. He was not included in the team for their last match against Team Abu Dhabi. Yuvraj Singh called time on his international career spanning nearly 19 years and over 400 matches in June 2019.
Yuvraj played 304 ODIs and was the man of the tournament in India’s triumph during the 2011 World Cup. He scored 8701 runs at an average of 36.55 with 14 centuries and 42 fifties in this format. He also played 40 Tests, scoring 1900 runs with an average of 33.92, which included 3 centuries and 11 50s. His highest Test score of 169 came against Pakistan in 2007 in Bengaluru.
Yuvraj Singh reckons that Kolkata Knight Riders’ (KKR) decision to release Australian opener Chris Lynn was a “bad call”. Lynn went on a play a whirlwind knock of 30-ball 91 playing for the Maratha Arabians
