India's World Cup 2011 hero Yuvraj Singh retires from global cricket

India's World Cup 2011 hero Yuvraj Singh retires from global cricket”

Smith and Warner have been met with jeers at all three of Australia's games since returning to the side from the ban stemming from the ball-tampering dramas past year.

Buoyed up by a ideal start to the tournament, the Australians were brimming with confidence ahead of the clash of World Cup heavyweights.

While Warner faced the lion's share of disrespect in that match, Steve Smith faced the wrath of unwelcoming crowds in their match against India. I know. I was there.

The incident caught the eye of Indian skipper Virat Kohli who was at the crease and in cruise control.

Kohli, who was batting as Smith fielded in the deep, walked towards the Indian crowd and motioned for them to applaud instead of booing him. The wholehearted gesture was appreciated by Steve Smith himself as he instantly shook hands with Virat and gave him a pat on his back.

Here is a picture that's worth everything.

. "But you don't want to see a guy feeling that heat every time he goes out to play", the India captain added.

Vettori said the New Zealand players would have to deal with vociferous backing for the Indian side at Trent Bridge on Thursday. "I think what's happened has happened long back".

Speaking against the Indian fans' action of booing Smith, Virat said "Just because there are so many Indian fans here, I just didn't want them to set a bad example". I just felt for him, and I told him, "I'm sorry on behalf of the crowd". "In my opinion that's not acceptable".

But Maxwell backed Australia´s approach and, like Waugh, believes only minor changes are needed to allow them to match India and tournament favourites England.

Yuvraj made an emotional return to the game in 2012 after a lengthy fight with a rare germ cell cancer in his lungs and played the last of his 40 Tests that same year. Steve Smith and David Warner were handed one-year bans by Cricket Australia while Bancroft was handed a nine-month ban by the cricket body.
