Earlier on July 5, 2014, Yuvraj too had touched Sachin's feet to show his respect for the legendary cricketer on the field. After Sachin dismissed him during the exhibition match between Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) and the Rest of the World (ROW) XI at Lords cricket ground, Yuvraj touched the Master Blaster's feet.
The match was organised to mark the 200th anniversary of the Lord's Cricket Ground in London. Yuvraj had scored 134 before being dismissed by his compatriot and idol.
