The former Indian all-rounder Yuvraj Singh has also stated his opinion on the controversy via a tweet. ‘Sprite should sign them’ – Yuvraj Singh hilariously tweeted regarding the ongoing controversy.
On the 1st of May, Lucknow Supergiants hosted the Royal Challengers Bangalore at the Ekana Cricket Stadium. During the game, while bowling his 3rd over Mohammad Siraj poked the LSG player Naveen Ul Haq.
Naveen responded to him with some cuss words which triggered Virat Kohli who jumped into the fight. Virat did some disgraceful gestures to the youngster which provoked the LSG coach Gautam Gambhir to take action.
