Mackay's 'date' with Yuvi


Colombo: New Zealand's women lost to England in their World Twenty20 semi-final on Thursday, but all-rounder Frances Mackay hasn't gone home empty-handed.

A "huge fan" of Yuvraj Singh, she managed to get a photograph with him before his departure on Wednesday evening.

"I've always admired Yuvraj... I'm a huge fan of his... One has begun to admire him even more for the way he fought cancer... That he's back playing international cricket is quite amazing," Frances told The Telegraph before leaving.

The Christchurch-based Frances bowls off-spin and can bat too.
