A budding 23-year-old physiotherapist was gangraped and manhandled in a moving bus on Sunday, an incident which shook the nation, leading to angry outburst across the country.
Yuvraj first took three wickets and then scored crucial 38-run knock in India's five-wicket win.
"I came particularly to dedicate this Man-of-the-match award to the girl who got gangraped in Delhi. It's very sad to know what has happened and the whole team is very concerned," Yuvraj said at the post-match press conference.
Yuvraj prayed that the girl should recover at the earliest.
"I do not what is the state of the girl now. I want to dedicate it to the girl and her parents. I have been reading a lot about this and this has been very disturbing. I am sure the whole of India is rooting for her recovery," Yuvraj added.
Prior to this, Bengal batsman Manoj Tiwary had dedicated his MOM award against West Indies last year in Chennai to the victims who lost their lives during a fire that broke out at the AMRI hospital.
i think yuvi take really great decision
Well done. Absolutely necessary support
Well done Yuvi! without you we can't imagine T20 or ODI Indian team. God bless you with shower of HIS love and support.
thanks to our cricketer who came forward to solace the family members with man of the award to the girl who had been under gruesome act of so-called rapist or let us put it as COUNTRYS TERROIST. I condemn the act of these people who should be punished severally or inother words they should be hanged to death publically so that it will be a alaram to those who do this to students/ladies. JUST LIKE KILL THESE PEOPLE WHO ARE ENGAGED IN THIS SORT OF ACTIVITIES AND COME BACK ALONE TO SERVE THE NEEDY HUMAN BEINGS. I PRAY GOD TO GIVE ENOUGH STRENGTH TO THE GIRL TO FACE THIS WRETCHED WORLD AND COME BACK WITH GLORY
Pardon me to say, but of what use is the 'dedication of the match' by Youvraj of any use to the victim? This is pure lip service. Have you donated match fees the victim? Mere dedication is of no value other than to show the media your concern. No one requires this kind of 'mere' lip service. Do something concrete. We are all good at speaking - like it is being shown after winning a match!
Yuvraj is always shows that he is a Indias most valuable player in shorter virsion of the game.
Yuvraj sir....you done very excellent work that you dedicated your "Man of the Match" award to the Delhi Gangrape victims..We know that we are Indian and we should approach for that help because only we can remove that evils from Society...
How politically correct! We will not have to wait long to see Yuraj in politics. Hopefully his performance in politics is much on an even keel than his cricket.
What is political in that? Everyone in India is outraged by incident. Only a sick mind will see politics in Yuvraj statement.
I DO NOT FIND ANY SORT OF HIDDEN POLITICS IN DEAR YOURAJS STATEMENT. HE WAS SEVERE CANCER PATIENT AND WAS COME UP IN CRICKET FIELD AGAIN. WITH GREAT MIND HE DIDICATED IT TO DELHI GANG RAPE VICTIM. sALUTE TO youvi AND ALL THE BEST IN YOUR FUTURE CARRIER........
The Yuvraj...Really great decision with ultimate performance,..! Yuvi Rock's
Yuvraj...happy to see u back in form yuvi n your kindness towards the girl.I hope mre of this will be expected from the sports personalities and from the richest society of india to pay more concern and prayers over such victims.
Tryly Humane Character Yuvi. Celebraties like you have to really take such incidences head on and pressurise the frugal bureacracy & politics to come up with strong legislation to curb such incidences.
"A budding 23-year-old physiotherapist was gangraped and manhandled in a moving bus on Sunday...." Manhandled??? MANHANDLED?? Whoa! Was the person who wrote this up running for an 'UNDERSTATEMENT OF THE YEAR' award? If so, he/she has definitely won it.
thankyou Yuvraj Sir. Having seen life and death at close quarters you are closer to the truth and have a good heart. we all have short lives, may your example help us love forgive and live.
Hey yuvraj, Hat's off to you your kindness.. Really you are such a nice person.. keep it up yuvi....
Nice to hear from yuvraj, it showed his humanity
Easy PR brownie points.
Yuvraj... you are really the Raja of not only cricket praja, but also of middle class and lower class praja. God Bless You. Sachin Tendulkar should also come forward, instead of making money for himsel.
