In the last two years, Team India is facing a problem with the number four positions in limited-overs. They haven’t found the player who can bat at number four. Surya Kumar Yadav is doing well in domestic circuit but team India isn’t giving him a chance. After a heroic performance in ongoing Vijay Hazare trophy from Surya Kumar Yadav, Harbhajan Singh comes up with a tweet, “Don’t know why he doesn’t get picked for India after scoring runs heavily in domestic cricket @surya_14kumar keep working hard.. Your time will come.”
Here is the Harbhajan Singh’s tweet for Surya Kumar Yadav

In the reply of this tweet, Yuvraj Singh trolls BCCI and team management with his tweet, “Yaar I told you! They don’t need a no 4 top order is very strong.”
Here is the Yuvi’s reply
Never thought that I would be: Yuvraj Singh
“Never thought that I would be dropped after being the man of the match in 2 games out of the 8-9 I played after the CT 2017. I got injured, and I was told to prepare for the SL series. Then suddenly, the yo-yo test came into the picture. It was a u-turn in my selection. Suddenly I had to go back and prepare for the yo-yo test at the age of 36. Even after I cleared the yo-yo test, I was told to play domestic cricket. They actually thought that I wouldn’t be able to clear the test due to my age. And that it would be easy to decline me afterwards…yeah you can say it was an exercise in making excuses.”
“I think it was unfortunate for a guy who has played 15-17 years of international cricket to not being made to sit down and being talked to. No one told me, and no one told Virender Sehwag or Zaheer Khan either. Whichever player it is, the in-charge person should sit down and talk with the player that we are looking at the youngsters and we’ve taken this step. This way, you do feel bad at the beginning, but at least you give them the credit of being true to your face – sth which doesn’t happen in Indian cricket. It has been like that forever, almost. I have seen it happen to big names. Took it personally then but not now as there is a time for everything to move on and I made my peace with it,” said Yuvraj.
