When Indian cricketer Virat Kohli got out after making just one run in the World Cup semi-final clash against Australia, his girlfriend Anushka Sharma, who was present for the match, was unfairly bashed on Twitter, provoking many celebrities to stand up for her.

Among them, Yuvraj Singh.

India all-rounder Yuvraj Singh has appealed to the cricket fans to respect Test captain Virat Kohli and his actress girlfriend Anushka Sharma's personal lives.

The 33-year-old Yuvraj, who was Man of the Tournament in the 2011 edition but could not find a place for the just-concluded mega-event, was also supportive of Kohli.

"Someone who's scored 5 hundreds on Aus tour deserves much more respect and support from his fans!
