Chris Gayle mocks Yuvraj Singh’s slow innings: The Universe Boss seems to have wanted the former Indian all-rounder to score quickly.
During the one-off Bushfire Relief Match between Ponting XI and Gilchrist XI at the Junction Oval on the last Sunday, Gilchrist XI all-rounder Yuvraj Singh failed to generate an impact with the bat in hand.
Coming in to bat at No. 4 in the fourth over while chasing a 105-run target in a 10-over encounter, the southpaw didn’t find his timing at all. Having scored 2 (6), Yuvraj’s innings didn’t rewind the clock for his fans unlike the likes of Ricky Ponting, Brian Lara, Sachin Tendulkar and Adam Gilchrist.
Yuvraj was a part of a batting collapse which saw Gilchrist XI losing the match by 1 run after a hilarious last-ball drama in Melbourne.
Yuvraj walked back to the pavilion in the fifth over after after mis-timing a Brett Lee delivery to Alex Blackwell at long-on. With bowling figures of 2-0-11-2, Lee was the pick of the bowlers for his team.
After captain Adam Gilchrist won the toss and chose to field, Ponting XI posted a formidable 104/5 in their allotted quota of 10 overs.
Coming in to bat at No. 5 in the seventh over, former West Indies captain Brian Lara top-scored with 30 (11) with the help of three fours and two sixes.
Watching Brian Lara hit over cover in the flesh has pretty much made my year.

Chris Gayle mocks Yuvraj Singh’s slow innings
Gayle, who is a close companion of Yuvraj, took to his Instagram handle to troll Yuvraj with respect to his slow innings. “Come on Yuvi…it’s not a Test match. Chip and drive Brett Lee,” wrote Gayle in his Instagram story.
“Noooooooo,” Gayle posted another story when Yuvraj was dismissed.
Top catch from Alex Blackwell! Yuvraj Singh’s gotta go!
