While talking to Gaurav Kapoor, Rohit Sharma recalled his first few encounters with Yuvraj Singh. Rohit said that his first impression of Yuvraj Singh was not too good.
“I used to fear the players. The first time when I was to board the team bus with other players, I reached the lobby one hour earlier. I was waiting for everyone. They came slowly but Yuvraj was looking different from far sight. I was a big fan of Yuvi,” Rohit Sharma said.
Rohit also said that once he was on the bus and was seated on one of the seats when Yuvraj came to him and said in a very indifferent tone, “Did I know whose seat it was? Did I know who sits there?”
