It's Friendship Day 2021 and it's celebration time all across the country. Although everyone is stuck at home due to pandemic, people are using social media to show their love for their best friends. On this special occasion, even cricketers are not missing an opportunity to post some throwback pictures of their amazing memories with friends/teammates. Suresh Raina posted an image from his under-19 days featuring Irfan Pathan and Ambati Rayudu with #HappyFriendshipDay.
However, Yuvraj Singh went a step ahead and posted a heartwarming video collage that featured most of his best mates throughout his cricket career. Terming the people as friends who became family, Yuvraj had photos with Harbhajan Singh, Mohammad Kaif, Zaheer Khan, Ashish Nehra, Sachin Tendulkar, Gautam Gambhir, Sourav Ganguly, Virender Sehwag, Rohit Sharma and so many more.
No Dhoni and Kohli in Yuvraj's video?
Although Yuvraj Singh had one group image from the 2011 World Cup, he did not post any individual images with Dhoni and Kohli. It was slightly strange because apart from these two, almost all the key players who have played with him throughout his career featured in Yuvraj's 'friendship day' video. While the video brings back the memories of the 'Golden era' of Indian cricket, the absence of Dhoni and Kohli makes it look slightly incomplete.

Fans express their disappointment
After watching the video, fans were quick to point out that Yuvraj has excluded Dhoni and Kohli from the video. It looked as if the cricketer has done that intentionally which is what angered some people. One of the Twitter users mentioned that the all-rounder's actions were not right considering the fact that Dhoni had posted photos with him in his retirement video.
It was a common belief among the fans that Yuvraj left the two captains out of the video because of their roles in dropping him from the Indian side. The netizens added that the duo gave him ample opportunities despite his poor form. While some expressed their disappointment, the others rolled out some hilarious memes on the whole situation.
