Memes have become an integral part in sports nowadays as it keeps the audience and fans engaged on social media. While fans are often seen sharing some rib-tickling posts on various sporting events and incidents quite frequently, the craze around the same has also passed on to some former cricketers. Wasim Jaffer is known as ‘meme king’ on Twitter for his amazing sense of humour.
It seems like another former Indian cricketer has entered the world of memes on Saturday. Yuvraj Singh, who has won World Cups with the national side in 2007 and 2011, has undoubtedly been one of the most fun characters both on and off the field. He is often seen posting some funny photos and videos involving various Indian cricketers and keeps the fans entertained on social media.
Yuvraj shares hilarious meme on Instagram
But this time around, he did something which left everyone in splits. Following India’s early exit from T20 World Cup 2021, a viral meme started doing rounds on social media involving Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma. In the image, Kohli can be seen in a thinking state with Anushka giving a doubtful expression.
“He must be thinking about other girls,” Anushka ponders, according to the meme. But hilariously, it reveals that Kohli is actually thinking about Yuvraj Singh. “Yuvi agar aaj hota toh middle order strong hota,” the bubble over Kohli read.
While the meme was hilarious, what made it more funny was the fact that Yuvraj Singh himself shared it on his Instagram story with laughing emojis.

India have had middle-order woes since Yuvraj’s retirement
Although it might only be a meme, there is certainly some truth in it as well. Since Yuvraj Singh’s retirement, India have had middle-order woes which have haunted them in big games. From the 2019 World Cup in England to the 2021 T20 World Cup in UAE, the batting collapse has been a crucial factor in India’s failure to lift the ICC trophy. It has often made the fans and probably even Kohli miss the experience of Yuvraj Singh on various occasions.
With players like Suryakumar Yadav, Rishabh Pant, Shreyas Iyer etc. expected to be part of India’s middle-order in times to come, fans would be hoping that they can effectively fill the long-left void in the side which has been there since Yuvraj’s retirement.
