Cricketers these days are shifting their focus towards social media platforms as coronavirus pandemic has stopped all the cricketing actions. The stars of the captivating game are seen interacting with their fans and revealing what is exactly going on in their life.


Sometimes they organise chat sessions on Instagram, while at some occasions cricketers converse on Twitter as well. In the process, celebutantes Irfan Pathan and Yuvraj Singh got involved in a Twitter banter on Thursday.

Pathan took a jibe at Yuvraj by joking about his bowling action in one of his tweets. The Vadodara cricketer shared a picture of a Sifaka in which the animal can be seen with open hands and is looking as if it resembles Pathan’s bowling action. Pathan used a laughing emoji and wrote that action was close enough.



After Pathan’s tweet, former all-rounder Yuvraj was quick to respond. Yuvi said he doesn’t know about bowling, but Irfan’s fielding was like that.

The funny banter did not end there as Pathan also reacted to Yuvraj’s response.

Soon after, Yuvraj’s former Mumbai Indians teammate Suryakumar Yadav also joined the Twitter banter. He asked Pathan about where he gets these images from.


A few days ago, Yuvraj had recalled his first meeting with Sachin Tendulkar. The Chandigarh-born had expressed his gratitude to the ‘Master Blaster’ for guiding him throughout his career, mainly under challenging stages.

“Thank u, Master. When we 1st met, I felt I have shaken hands with god. U’ve guided me in my toughest phases. U taught me to believe in my abilities. I’ll play the same role for youngsters that you played for me. Looking 4wd (forward) to many more wonderful memories with you,” Yuvraj had written on Twitter.
