India endured a disappointing defeat in the World T20 Final to Sri Lanka on Sunday, and star Yuvraj Singh bore the brunt of a fair amount of the blame after a middling performance. 

According to DNA India, police had to rush to Singh's house in Chandigarh in the aftermath, as an angry crowd of fans took out their frustration by means of pelting his residence with stones. 

People who're throwing stones on Yuvraj Singh's house are the same people who were waving India's flag outside his house on Apr 2, 2011.

It's hardly an unfounded incident, unfortunately, as in the past, India team-mate Mahendra Singh's house was attacked by stone-throwers last year.
