‘Yuvi paji got very emotional’: Abhishek Sharma shares Yuvraj Singh’s reaction after India’s T20 World Cup win. Watch | Cricket News

NEW DELHI: India’s historic triumph in the T20 World Cup has ignited a wave of inspiration and motivation among the country’s Gen-Next stars, including Abhishek Sharma, who was watching the game with his mentor and former Indian cricketer Yuvraj Singh. Abhishek stated that the former all-rounder had got emotional after watching India’s T20 World Cup win.
Witnessing the emotions of a multiple World Cup winner like Yuvraj during India’s thrilling win over South Africa left a profound impact on Abhishek.
“I was watching the match (T20 WC final) with the one and only Yuvi paji (Yuvraj Singh). He got very emotional when India won the final. Watching that, I felt very good and got very inspired. It’s a dream for all of us to win an ICC trophy, and he has won it for India many times. I will never forget that moment, and then we went outside and celebrated. I think this World Cup was very special and now I am really motivated to win a Cup for the country,” Sharma told BCCI, as quoted by PTI.

The young and talented cricketers, who are set to represent India in the upcoming five-match T20I series against Zimbabwe, have expressed their admiration and determination to emulate the success of their senior counterparts.
Shubman Gill, in his first assignment of leading the Indian contingent in Harare, hailed the World Cup victory as a “feather in the cap” for the team.
“This must have been very special for all of them, and special for me. They have been working very hard for this. So, it’s a feather in the cap,” Gill said.
Ruturaj Gaikwad expressed his delight at witnessing the legendary trio of Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, and Ravindra Jadeja bid farewell to T20I cricket on a high note.
“To have a win of this kind, where we were almost in the jaws of defeat, and then to come back from there and win is a special moment. Obviously, a great end to the T20I career of three legends (Kohli, Rohit and Jadeja),” Gaikwad asserted.
Riyan Parag, who is set to make his T20I debut against Zimbabwe, termed India’s victory as an inspiration for all budding cricketers in the nation.
“It’s an inspiration for all of us, the young players here in this squad to win a World Cup, to win something this big in stature. I think it’s motivating for all of us, and the young cricketers in India,” said Parag.
Fresh off an impressive IPL season with Sunrisers Hyderabad, Abhishek Sharma had the privilege of watching the final alongside the legendary Yuvraj Singh.
Wicketkeeper-batter Dhruv Jurel employed an unconventional approach, reverse-jinxing the outcome to ensure India’s victory.
“I was thinking that if I say India will win, then SA might win. So, I was saying SA will win, and eventually India won. I was celebrating like a kid after that,” Jurel noted.
The pacers, Mukesh Kumar and Tushar Deshpande, described the win as a “miracle”, while Avesh Khan celebrated the momentous occasion with local fans, vowing to maintain the high standards set by the World Cup-winning team. Ravi Bishnoi and Washington Sundar echoed similar sentiments, with Bishnoi expressing his joy through solitary celebrations in his hotel room.
