Legendary Indian all-rounder Yuvraj Singh has taken a dig at one of the players of Rajasthan Royals by using Jos Buttler as a reference. With R Ashwin always hogging the limelight for various reasons, the fans are confused whether Yuvraj is targeting the Indian off-spinner.
The former India all-rounder took to Twitter to post a controversial ‘gentlemen’ tweet that made fans believe he was mocking Ashwin.
The 40-year-old wrote that cricket still has gentlemen left in the game, with Buttler being one. While Yuvraj lauded the England wicket-keeper, his last line has divided social media when he said that Jos’ teammates must learn from him.
“We still have a gentleman in the game of cricket. @josbuttler 👏🏽 other players should learn from him, especially teammates,” he wrote.
Here is how fans reacted
