Yuvraj Singh did not get selected in Indian ODI side against Sri Lanka after facing the Yo-Yo fitness test. It seems like he has been working on his physique of late. Yuvraj posted his shirtless photo on Instagram with the caption reading ‘Mood’. Yuvraj has been posting various photos and videos of his fitness regime on Instagram, but this came as a first. Yuvraj is raring to boost up his fitness and make himself eligible for selection in India’s limited overs team as far as fitness parameters are concerned.
Yuvraj is taking his fitness seriously but that does not mean that his teammates will refrain from trolling him on every opportunity. Indian opener Rohit Sharma commented on the post, “@yuvisofficial please define what you mean when you say ‘Mood’ because it’s not very clear.”
Rohit drew first blood but Harbhajan Singh was not far behind either. He commented “Sallu Bhai” on the post comparing him to Bollywood Superstar Salman Khan who started the fitness trend in the industry more than a decade ago with his well-sculpted body.
While Rohit is in the Indian side across all formats, Harbhajan Singh is hoping against hope to make a comeback before the 2019 World Cup. Rohit recently scored an half-century in the second ODI against Sri Lanka which turned out to be a roller coaster ride as mystery spinner Akila Dananjaya demolished India’s batting order.
On the other hand, Yuvraj was in India’s ICC Champions Trophy 2017 squad and produced one quick fire innings against Pakistan in the first match. Though he did not do well on the West Indies tour scoring just 57 runs from 3 innings he got a chance to bat in.
Yuvraj will have to work a lot harder to make it back into the side with competition increasing for the race of a berth in India’s middle order.
