“Really disappointed by @SAfridiOfficial ‘s comments on our Hon’b PM @narendramodi  ji. As a responsible Indian who has played for the country, I will never accept such words. I made an appeal on your behest for the sake of humanity. But never again. Jai Hind (sic),” Yuvraj tweeted on Sunday (May 17).
