Former Indian all-rounder Yuvraj Singh is making a habit of coming up with the most hilarious birthday videos for cricketers. On Ishant Sharma's birthday a couple of days back, the 39-year-old had posted a rib-tickling video of him mimicking the voice of the fast-bowler which had gone viral on social media. This time around, the victim of Yuvraj's sense of humour was youngster Abhishek Sharma who turned 21 on Saturday.
Abhishek was part of India's 2018 Under-19 World Cup winning squad, which brought the all-rounder into limelight. Hailing from Punjab, he shares a great camaraderie with Yuvraj Singh having played domestic cricket together for some time. Yuvraj posted a birthday video for Abhishek on his Instagram account which was quite unique and different in its own way.
Sir Abhishek Sharma ka birthday hai: Yuvraj Singh
In the video, Yuvraj can be hilariously seen taking ragging of the youngster. From making him weep the floor to scolding him, the footage shows how the 39-year-old punishes Abhishek when the latter comes late for gym session. Interestingly, the youngster can also be seen accepting his punishment without any complains which proves the unique bond that the two share with each other.
While the footage was undoubtedly funny, Yuvraj went a step ahead with his caption game as he stated, "Sir Abhishek Sharma ka birthday hai! I hope ki iss saal aap apne umda talent ke saath, apna dimaag 🧠 bhi istemaal karein aur yaad rakhein ki single, double se bhi run 🏃 ban sakte hain 🤪 wishing you the very best for a successful IPL and a great year ahead 👊🏻."

The SRH all-rounder acknowledged the birthday wish from Yuvraj Singh and thanked him for his blessings. He commented, "Thankyou so much paji this means a lot and yes mai poora dimaag lgaaunga and will make you feel proud this year❤️🙏🏻" Interestingly, his franchise teammate David Warner was also seen in the comments section where he was seen taking a cheeky dig at Yuvraj Singh.
Notably, Abhishek Sharma played 3 matches for Sunrisers Hyderabad in first half of IPL 2021 where scalped 2 wickets. The 21-year-old will certainly be raring to make a bigger impact for his side in second phase of the season in UAE.
