A news channel is being mocked on social media after calling the wrong ‘Yuvraj Singh’ on a live broadcast to get his reaction to Mahendra Singh Dhoni announcing his retirement. To add to the channel’s embarrassment, the person who was put on-air also roasted the channel for the gaffe during the show.

The incident took place when Zee News decided to call former India cricketer Yuvraj Singh to get his reaction to Dhoni’s retirement. However, much to the chagrin of the anchor, it turned out to be someone else. Introducing Singh, the anchor said, “Yuvraj Singh bhi humare saath hai. Bahut emotional karne wala pal hai. Duniya ke mahantam cricketers mein se ek jab cricket ko alvida kahte hai (Yuvraj Singh is with us. This is a moment that makes us emotional, When one of the greatest cricketers in the world says goodbye to the game).”

However, after a brief pause, the person on-air responds, “Mai toh Yuvraj Singh bol he nahi raha hoon. Aap galat bande ko le aaye. Aapki TRP toh kharab nhi hogyi. (I am not Yuvraj Singh. You have called the wrong guy. Hope your TRP won’t get affected).

The video has been widely shared on social media platforms, leaving netizens in splits. One individual also claimed to be the person who was on-air.

“Last night I got a call on my number and before I knew it I was being interviewed as Yuvraj Singh on zee news…this is what happened next,” tweeted @ashraysharma21.

Here is how netizens reacted:

The news of Dhoni’s retirement from limited-overs cricket left his fans heartbroken despite his absence from international cricket since the ICC World Cup last year. Many news channels paid tribute to the 39-year-old cricketer after he bid farewell to international cricket via an Instagram post.
