Yuvraj to be at Pune's side next match

 Yuvraj, who led the Warriors in IPL-IV, has tweeted that he will be going to Pune on Thursday to watch Sourav & Co. take on the Deccan Chargers. And guess what, Souravs hair has an element to play in what would be Yuvrajs first appearance at a cricket ground after returning from the US, where he underwent treatment for a rare kind of cancer.

Theres no reason for Sourav Ganguly to pull his hair out as his team, the Sahara Pune Warriors India, are doing decently in the continuing fifth edition of the IPL. In fact, the pull of Souravs hair appears to be strong for Yuvraj Singh to ignore.

Dada Im coming on 26th to pune with some hair gel and a scissor! So you have day to choose :) nice luck boys!!, Yuvraj tweeted in jest on Tuesday.

The reference is obviously to what is being popularly termed as a hair-raising performance. The highlight of Souravs match-winning all-round performance, against the Delhi DareDevils, on Saturday, was his celebration after castling Kevin Pietersen. An ecstatic Sourav had sprinted across the ground together with his hair flying.

Another tweet read: Maybe Ill give my hair gel to him cause I havent used it in last three months haha!, Indias World Cup hero had said. But the best of the lot is: Dada walking long on ! hair is going long off lol.

After Saturdays match, Yuvraj, who shares a fond relationship together with his one-time captain, had tweeted: Well bowled dada! U require to put gel next time you take a wicket!
