Nivin Pauly, who played the role of an ambitious cricketer in his movie 1983, is so much unhappy with the responses of the people around after India lost their match against Srilanka at the Twenty 20 world cup.
We saw a terrific match where Virat Kohli gave an outstanding performance. But, unfortunately Yuvraj Singh could not make it this time and did not perform well. It was more than a curse for Yuvraj when people started attacking him, abusing him for being the reson for India's loss.
Nivin Pauly shared his opinion on his official Facebook page by sharing Sachin Tendulkar's status which quoted likewise: It is the unpredictable nature of the game that makes cricket such an exciting sport. As cricketers, we always enjoy the applause when we succeed but it is the support and encouragement from fans, during tough times, that we appreciate the most.
All of us took pride in the heroics of Yuvi when we won the T20 World Cup in 2007 and his outstanding contribution in the ODI World Cup win in 2011 will always be cherished.
Last evening, Yuvi had a tough day and he can be criticized. But he should not be crucified nor should he be written off.
I have been an admirer of Yuvi's indomitable Spirit which has overcome many challenges, both on and off the field. Knowing Yuvi's determination and ability to fight adversities, he will emerge stronger, proving his critics wrong, yet again.
Yuvi, one off day cannot undermine your tremendous contribution in many sweet memories over the years. You may be down today but you are far from being out.
