The hard-hitting left-hander, the man of the series in the 2011 World Cup, who recently scored back-to-back centuries against Haryana, Maharashtra and Saurashtra, Yuvraj Singh, has not been included in the 15-member World Cup squad.
Yuvraj's name missing from the squad didn't go down well with his his fans, who took to twitter to express their resentment. #Binny , #Yuvraj and #Yuvi trended on twitter as soon as the squad was announced.
Here are a few twitter reactions:

Gambhir & Yuvraj will be missed in this world cup. They have the aggression to fight and pull a game just like that. #WC2015

Some even raised fingers at Captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni for keeping Yuvi out of the World Cup Team.
Without Yuvraj Singh India cannot win the 2015 World cup!!!!

Dhoni - Yuvraj Singh is playing very good in Ranji. Hence, we have decided to let him play Ranji. :P

Yuvraj missing the bus is very unfortunate, but that was a writing already on the wall I think even Yuvi knew about it Stuart Binny #WC2015— AkileshS (@AwaazFromAbove) January 6, 2015
