Stones pelted at Yuvraj Singh's house in Chandigarh

Soon after Team India's defeat in World T20 final against Sri Lanka, security was beefed up around the house of Yuvraj Singh in Chandigarh on Sunday night. If reports are to be believed, the angry fans showered their frustration with stones.

Yuvraj, who scored a struggling 21-ball 11, not only scored at a poor rate, but shifted the momentum in Sri Lanka's favour and fans started blaming 2011 World Cup hero for the loss in the finals.

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.

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