Yuvraj Singh Issues Hilarious Warning to Rohit Sharma Ahead of Perth Test

India’s batting unit had a mixed outing in the first Test against Australia at Adelaide that the visitors would go on to win by 31 runs.

Cheteshwar Pujara’s heroics with the bat glossed over what was a below-par showing from India’s batsmen yet perhaps no one got as much criticism as Rohit Sharma did.

That criticism came due to the fact that the Mumbai batsman threw away his wicket in the first innings, attempting to smash Nathan Lyon out of the ground and getting out on 37 just as he was looking good.

To make matters worse, Rohit was dismissed for one in the second innings and once again off Lyon’s bowling.

Rohit predictably copped some flak from social media thereafter but perhaps nothing came close to the response of Yuvraj Singh.

Rohit took to Twitter to wish Yuvraj Singh a happy birthday on Wednesday (December 12), tweeting the wish alongside a picture of the two of them together during an Indian Premier League (IPL) game.

The scrutiny on Rohit’s spot in the Test team will remain until he puts in at least one convincing performance and Yuvraj’s words might just have been the motivation he needs!

The second Test between India and Australia gets underway at Perth on Friday (December 14).
