My email id still has the word 'cake chucker': Yuvraj a Pietersen
NEW DELHI: ex-ATV from India Yuvraj Singh on Sunday revealed that one of his email IDs still has the floor cake chucker ' in that. Yuvraj was doing a live Instagram session with ex England batter Kevin Pietersen . The two hitters decided to talk about Yuvraj's bowling.
During their playing days, Pietersen had famously called Yuvraj as a cake chucker for the bowling style the left-handed batter possessed.
Talking about the word pie-chucker, Yuvraj told Pietersen, "My email address still has the word ' cake chucker ' in it, I laughed so much when you described me as a cake chucker for my bowling style. I made an email id and included the word cake chucker in that and it is my favourite email address. Sometimes, even my friends go like, hey how are you cake chucker ."
When you know someone hates your bowling and they don't want to contact you, even if they want to crush you, they still block you. That was the fun part, he added.
Born in Chandigarh, Yuvraj captured the imagination of the world Cricket with its gravity-defying field skills and effortless power.
A career that spanned over 304 ODIs, 58 T20Is and 40 Tests, Yuvraj imprinted his place in the echelons of Cricket as a player who could win matches for his side either through his electric fielding, deceiving bowling or fierce batting.
The big events brought out the best in him -- be it his international Cricket entry at 2000 ICC Champions Trophy, the mind-blowing hitting exhibition at the opening of the World Twenty20 2007 or the full performance at the 2011 World Cup.
Yuvraj is renowned for hitting six sixes in an over of England 's Stuart broad in the ICC T20 World Cup 2007 and was awarded the Player of the Tournament in India's 2011 50-over World Cup triumph.
