If there is one current cricketer who is known for his wit after the 'Nawab of Twitter' Virender Sehwag, it's Yuvraj Singh. Yuvi, who has made a senstational comeback to the Indian limited overs side recently against England, often takes to Twitter to pull someone's leg.
Recently, Yuvi took to the social media platform to take a light-hearted dig at Bollywood actress Sagarika Ghatge.

Now, Sagarika is rumoured to be Yuvi's former colleague Zaheer Khan's girlfriend, though both have yet to acknowledge the relationship.
Sagarika, burst on to the Bollywood scene with Shah Rukh Khan’s Chak De! India, but went quiet after that. She's back now with her new fim 'Irada'. The film which stars Naseeruddin Shah and Arshad Warsi released on February 17, and both Yuvraj and Zaheer were there in Mumbai to catch a special screening of the movie.
Yuvraj also wished Sagarika ahead of the screening.

He thought that while wishing the actress, he would pull her leg a little as well. The southpaw posted, "All the best Sagarika Ghatge for tonight remember you from the days when you dated a Vice-captain of the Indian team good choice not do it in real life."
The newly-married cricketer was of course refering to Sagarika's character in 'Chak De! India', where she is shown dating the Vice-Captain of Indian cricket team, before dumping him.

While supposedly pulling Sagarika's leg, he ends up trolling himself since he was the vice-captain of Team India for a lng time and known for his playboy image. Is he thus alluding to that in the tweet? We wonder if he is saying that Sagarika is lucky that she did not date him in real life.
Sagarika replied to the tweet with a straight bat. She posted,"I never intermingle reel with real . See you tonight."
But even this dig at himself seems to have made his fans swoon!
