Earlier this year it was Chris Gayle who was suddenly picked up by the Kings XI Punjab just when it seemed like there was no light at the end of the tunnel for the left-handed batsman. This year another left-handed batsman’s auction gave us all an adrenaline rush- Yuvraj Singh.
For a moment it seemed like Yuvraj Singh’s IPL career has come to an end when nobody cared about him during the first round. Come round 2 and the Ambanis stepped up or rather saw it as an opportunity for a steal deal. They acquired the services of the left-handed southpaw from Punjab for a mere Rs 1 Lakh and it was ‘Balle Balle’ time for the Mumbai Paltan.
From Sachin Tendulkar to Akash Ambani himself, everyone has been tweeting about how glad they are about ‘Yuvi’s’ inclusion in the Mumbai Indians squad ever since and the latest to join the band-wagon was the skipper Rohit Sharma. The Mumbai Indians skipper resorted to the micro-blogging site and especially took time out to welcome Yuvraj Singh to his team. While doing so he also termed Mumbai as the city of ‘Heroics’.
