As congratulatory messages poured in from all over the world, India’s 2011 World Cup hero Yuvraj Singh also wished Ganguly on his new role via a tweet.

Last month, in an interview with Aaj Tak, Yuvraj expressed his dissatisfaction with the way Yo-Yo test was implemented.

“Never thought that I would be dropped after being the man of the match in 2 games out of the 8-9 I played after the CT 2017. I got injured and I was told to prepare for the SL series. then suddenly, the yo-yo test came into the picture. It was a u-turn in my selection. Suddenly I had to go back and prepare for the yo-yo test at the age of 36. Even after I cleared the yo-yo test, I was told to play domestic cricket,” told Yuvraj.

In response to Yuvraj’s tweet, Ganguly responded with a brilliant message naming the southpaw as his superstar. “Thank u the best .. u have won India world cups .. time to do good things for the game now .. u r my super star .. god bless always,” tweeted Saurav.
