Yuvi loses his cool with SL fans

Indian batsman Yuvraj Singh, who was left out of the playing eleven, reportedly lost his cool with some section of the Sri Lankan fans who scoffed him with "water boy" chants during the opening day of the third cricket Test at Colombo.

The incident happened when 12th man Yuvraj entered the ground and made his way towards his team-mates with water bottles and some drinks in hand.

But soon a section of the spectators started booing by calling him "water boy". An enraged Yuvraj then raised his middle finger towards the booing fans.

Taking note of the incident, Team India manager Ranjib Biswal said that Yuvraj did try to ignore them, but they were continuously provoking him and they are planning to file a police complaint against the fans which scoffed Yuvraj.

"We are mulling to lodge a police complain against the fans who had tried to scoff Yuvraj when he had come out to provide drinks during the match," he said.

Yuvraj, who missed the second Test due to illness, failed to make it to the playing eleven in the final match also as Suresh Raina, debutant in the second Test replacing Yuvraj hit a superb ton to be picked ahead of him.

Sri Lanka were at 293 for 4 at the draw of stumps on the first day of the final.
