Facing a barrage of criticism for his slow batting in the lost World Twenty20 final against Sri Lanka, Indian batsman Yuvraj Singh found support from his teammate and close friend Harbhajan Singh, who urged fans to not be bitter about just “one bad day”.

Yuvraj has been criticised by the game’s observers and ridiculed by fans online for scoring just 11 runs off 21 balls, which led to India totalling a mere 130, a target that was overhauled in 17.5 overs by Sri Lanka in the final last night. But Harbhajan called for some perspective while analysing the dashing left-hander, who has been a proven performer. (Also Read: Stones pelted at Yuvraj’s home)
