New Delhi: Veteran Indian cricketer Yuvraj Singh has a huge fan following in India, thanks to his heroics on the cricket field.

After skipper David Warner (30), Shikhar Dhawan (28) and Kane Williamson (24) were dismissed early, the onus was on Yuvi and he didn't let his fans down and smashed 70 runs off just 41 balls as SRH reached a formidable 185-run target.
While the fans got entertainment worth their money with Yuvraj's knock, he proved he was also one of game's finest gentleman during Delhi Daredevils' innings.
Rishabh Pant, Delhi's wicketkeeper batsman, was in some spot of bother as his shoe laces were untied. Without much hesitation, Yuvraj, who was fielding nearby, went to the stumper, bent on his knees and tied his laces.
