India won the second T20 match versus Australia with a margin of 37 runs, and so did the series after taking a 2-0 lead in the three-match series.
However, social media, particularly Twitter has gone abuzz, with tweets targeted at Yograj Singh (father of Yuvraj Singh), mocking fun at the star batsman’s father.
It may be recalled that Yograj Singh had courted controversy after alleging that the Indian captain MS Dhoni did not wanted his son Yuvraj Singh in the World Cup squad.
In today’s match, MS Dhoni promoted himself ahead of Yuvraj Singh, while in the first match, Suresh Raina was promoted ahead of Yuvraj Singh.
Suresh Raina and Yuvraj Singh have both arrived recently just for the T20 series, unlike the rest of the team which have been part of the 5-match ODI series.
At the presentation ceremony Dhoni said that he promoted himself ahead of Yuvraj as the latter did not have enough match practice.
Here are some of the light-hearted tweets on Yograj Singh.

Yuvraj Singh is like that boy in our local cricket who fields all day but doesn’t get the chance to bat. Yograj Singh would be disgusted now

Well not all were harsh, there some supporters too.
Don’t make fun of Yuvraj’s father Yograj Singh. At least this father has given birth to one fighter who plays for nation. And your’s ??
