Yuvraj Singh lost his cool during a charity dinner event that was hosted recently.

While cricketers loosing their cool is nothing new, the reason behind Yuvi losing his patience left many perplexed as he was asked about his view on Indian Test skipper Virat Kohli taking over India’s ODI and T20 captaincy.

What was more perplexing is that the question was asked during a charity dinner that was hosted by none other than Virat Kohli himself, with whom Yuvi has no known tensions.


There were many superstars, including cricketers and Bollywood celebrities present at the event. Ahead of the dinner, the media had caught hold of Yuvi for a bite.

While everything was going normally, the India all-rounder suddenly lost his cool when a reporter asked him about Virat Kohli taking over full-time captaincy of the Indian team.

As soon as he heard the question Yuvi immediately cut the sound bite short and said: “I’m here just to talk about the event. I’m not here to talk about cricket.”


In the past few years captaincy of the Indian team has always been a touchy topic for Yuvi.

While time and again his father Yograj Singh blamed current Indian skipper MS Dhoni for Yuvi’s exclusion from the cricket team, Yuvi himself has always defended Dhoni and rubbished rumours that the latter was ‘black balling’ him from Indian Cricket Team.
