On Sunday night, India won the last ODI against Sri Lanka, not only sweeping the hosts in the three-match series, but also setting a world record for winning the match by the most runs. Team India has become the first team in the history of ODI cricket to win a match by more than 300 runs. Apart from this, other players of Team India including Shubman Gill and Virat Kohli made many records by performing brilliantly. However, despite this, former Indian all-rounder and World Cup winning team player Yuvraj Singh is worried. When Shubman Gill and Virat Kohli were on the field during the Indian batting, Yuvi made a tweet which went viral. The Indian all-rounder expressed concern about ODI cricket in this tweet.

Yuvraj Singh wrote, ‘Shubman Gill played brilliantly, hope he scores another century in ODIs. At the other end, Virat Kohli is also batting brilliantly, but for me the concern is the half-empty stadium. Is ODI cricket ending?
For some time now, Test and T20 cricket have made a lot of space in the hearts of fans as compared to ODI cricket. The introduction of the World Test Championship in the longest format of cricket has increased the interest of the fans, while two T20 World Cups were held in the last two years, due to which all the teams played a lot of matches. In such a situation, there has been a lot of decline in the popularity of ODI cricket.
Irfan Pathan also enjoyed this tweet of Yuvraj Singh. Irfan also asked Yuvi to get back on the field.
