India opener Rohit Sharma posted a picture with his wife Ritika Sajdeh and captioned it, "Always hold on to what you love."
While the fans swarmed the picture with comments, former India all-rounder Yuvraj Singh had a funny take on it. Yuvraj said, "I love your cheeks can I hold on to them."
Both the Indian cricketers often take to social media to pull each other's leg.
It was during a conversation with Rohit only, where Yuvraj had come up with objectionable comments on Yuzvendra Chahal.
Singh, in one of his video interviews with India opener Rohit, called Chahal a ‘bhangi’ (a casteist remark) referring to the latter’s popular TikTok videos.
While it was as casual comment as it could get with both Singh and Sharma laughing off the matter, however, the small clip from the conversation – roughly a month back – made it’s way to social media with Twitter users slamming Singh for his disparaging comment.
Chahal has been racking up the social media attention with his dancing videos with models and family members and is often the talking point of other cricketers during their video conversations, which has gained popularity due to the lockdown in the country.
The hashtag #युवराज_सिंह_माफी_मांगो has so far seen nearly 20,000 tweets with users demanding an apology from the retired international.
