If reports doing rounds are to be believed, the angry fans are showering their frustration with stones. The Chandigarh house of  Yuvraj Singh, who didn’t make an impression in Sunday’s ICC World T20 final against Sri Lanka, is attracting unwanted attention.

Yuvraj, who scored a struggling 21-ball 11, not only scored at a poor rate, but shifted the momentum in Sri Lanka’s favour.

Earlier, Yuvraj Singh’s father Yograj came out in defence of his son, saying the left-handed batsman, who struggled for his 11 runs off 21 balls, should not be singled out for India’s loss in the ICC World T20 final. (Also Read: Yuvraj, hero of 2007 and ’11, flops in ’14)

“Yuvraj should not be singled out,” Yograj said when asked if his son consuming 21 deliveries was the main reason behind India losing the title clash against Sri Lanka at Mirpur.

        I really don't understand why fans go crazy and stone cricketers house........they should not do it..yuviraj was the hero for the previous world cups which we won and that time everyone praised him and said he is the greatest of all and now when things are not in his favor and he has a bad day people pelt tones at his home which i think is very bad..i dont think we Indians are like this........we should respect someone who is playing........i wanted to ask the people it is easy to sit out and say many things about the batting or bowling but it is very tough when you all alone playing in the middle when the w world see you it is very difficult........guys i request you to respect people who are playing and leave them alone.....it is just a match...........
