Former India all-rounder Yuvraj Singh has found his form as he played a 26-ball 45 to help his team Toronto Nationals set a total of 217 against Winnipeg Hawks in the ongoing Global T20 Canada at Brampton on Monday.
Asked to bat first, Chirag Suri and Heinrich Klaasen got out in the first five overs. Rodrigo Thomas and Yuvraj Singh came to the rescue of the team and they helped push the total past 200.

Yuvraj Singh’s innings was laced with 2 sixes and 4 boundaries before he fell to Kaleem Sana in the 13th over of the game. Sana bowled a slower ball that nipped back in and Yuvraj got an inside edge while trying to play it to the third man. Yuvraj Singh had been criticized for his poor batting during the opening match of the league when he made just 14 off 27 balls. However, he came up with much-improved effort in the rest of the matches so far.

Meanwhile, Yuvraj is clearly having fun in the league and it was evident when he crashed an interview between Australian cricketer Ben Cutting and anchor Erin Holland, who incidentally is Cutting’s fiancee. Yuvraj can be heard saying, “When is the wedding guys,” as Cutting and Holland burst into laughter.
A look at some of the fans’ reactions to Yuvraj’s innings–
