  • Yuvraj Singh said young cricketers behave differently on social media
  • Jasprit Bumrah also agreed that youngsters seeks for social media validation
  • Yuvraj and Bumrah interacted with each other in Instagram live chat

Former India cricketer Yuvraj Singh feels that young players take up a different kind of personality when they are social media platforms to seek approval from others.

The 2007 and 2011 World Cup-winning member of Team India said he himself has seen many players behaving differently on social media. Yuvraj was having this discussion with India fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah during an Instagram live session.




“I feel they try too hard. They become what they are not when they are on social media,” Yuvraj said.

“I have seen many players who are otherwise very decent but on social media, they become something else,” the former all-rounder added.

Bumrah, too, echoed Yuvraj’s sentiments.

“I have seen youngsters want validation on social media. That people say they are good. People’s opinions should not change the perception and it should not matter. You need to have confidence in yourself,” said Bumrah.




India is currently under lockdown to limit the rapid spread of the coronavirus that has wreaked havoc globally. Amid this time when sports events have been either suspended or canceled, players are taking to social media to interact with fans, fellow teammates, or others.
