Former Indian striking batter Yuvraj Singh is quite popular in the sports fraternity globally and also a known personality for his unique style quotient. However, a video of a vlogger failed to recognize him on New York streets.

The blogger – Yi Wang, who runs an Instagram page called nyc_food_and_drinks – even shared the video of Yuvraj Singh on Instagram asking if anyone knew who he was.

Wang wrote, “POV: NYC celebrity encounter”. The video opens with a text insert that reads, “Can someone tell me who this is? Apparently very famous in India?”

The video has gone viral and accumulated nearly 10 million views, and the numbers are still increasing.

At that time, Yuvraj was surrounded by fans who are interacting with him and taking his video.
