Rohit: My cricket crush was Yuvraj Singh

"When I joined the team, my cricket crush was Yuvraj Singh. I always wanted to talk to Yuvraj Singh, I always wanted to see how he is getting ready and what he does," said Rohit Sharma. Rohit then asked Yuvraj about the disparity between the present Team India and players who played in international cricket alongside the left-hander during his initial days.

The seniors were disciplined when I came into the team or when you (Rohit) came into the team. Social media did not exist, so there were no distractions, "Yuvraj replied.

We boys had to bring a certain behavior, how they speak to people, how they talk to the media. Since they were the game's ambassadors and India, "added the former all-rounder.

Commenting on the infamous incident involving Hardik Pandya and KL Rahul, suspended during a chat show for their loose talk about women, Yuvraj added: "That incident could not have happened in our time."
