Yuvraj Singh gets a Jumbo book with World Cup trophy

Jumbo Editorial Team

Yuvraj Singh must have been over the moon on that famous evening of April 2 after he had helped India fulfill the cherished goal of becoming the first hosts to win the Cricket World Cup. He had also starred in many of the earlier victories and he was adjudged as Man of the Tournament.

The Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai had gone berserk after Yuvraj Singh finished it off in the company of skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni and atmosphere was better felt than described.

Ehsan Qureshi, one of Pakistan’s premier journalists and authors, was there at the ground to cover the mega event that was being watched live by millions of television viewers in all the continents of the world.

Ehsan caught Yuvraj right there and presented him a copy of his book Fiasco, brought out by Jumbo Publishing in 2008, nearly a year after that ill-fated Cricket World Cup 2007.

Yuvraj, despite being the man of the moment and with the anchors and presenters chasing him everywhere, displayed the courtesy to stay with Ehsan and the scene was captured for posterity.

While Yuvraj formally thanked the author rather gracefully after going through just a few pages of the book, he smiled back when told that there will be a lot more about him in the books being compiled by Jumbo Publishing on the Cricket World Cup 2011.
