As Sri Lanka finally won the World T20 in their third final appearance, Twitterati furiously vented out their feelings on the micro blogging site. While many congratulated the islanders for a truly brilliant win, many blamed Yuvraj's poor strike rate for India's loss.
Jokes flew around, with people blaming his 21 ball 11 for India's low total. #MiracleBoyYuvi was soon trending. Here are some tweets that caught our attention:

Not everyone was as dismissive though. There were several who came out in support of the beleagured southpaw, invoking his good performance in the last 50 over World Cup match and other tournaments.
Spare a thought for @YUVSTRONG12 This is not the match he would have wanted & I bet he's more disappointed with himself than anyone else is.— Omar Abdullah (@abdullah_omar) April 6, 2014
