Yuvraj Singh is not the flavour of the season and was heavily criticised for his batting in the World T20 final against Sri Lanka. But many of his fans and Bollywood have rallied behind the beleaguered batsman.

Yuvraj's 21-ball 11 sucked the momentum out of India's innings on Sunday and some unruly fans pelted stones at the all-rounder's residence in Chandigarh.

Bollywood though took to social media to extend their support to the left-hander, who was instrumental in getting two World Cups to India -- the 2007 T20 title and the 50-over trophy in 2011.

The southpaw has found a supporter in Twitter sensation Poonam Pandey.

Poonam never lets go of a chance to be in the thick of cricketing things. She tweeted, “Don't forget Yuvraj Singh was the one because of whom India won the World Cup.” Point noted!
