    Default Yuvraj in British newspaper's 'top 10 egos'

    Indian batsman Yuvraj Singh finds himself in a rather unflattering list with a British newspaper naming him as one of the 'top 10 sporting egos' of recent times.

    Yuvraj, who has failed to find a place in India's Test squad for some time, was described as a talented cricketer whose ego has been inflated by the moolah from the Indian Premier League
    "The Twitter biography says it all, really: 'Cricketer, Celebrity, Entrepreneur, budding Philanthropist aka Yuvi'," Daily Telegraph said.
    "Wonderfully talented teenager got lost in the 'tamasha', which accompanied the Indian Premier League. Ego, bank balance and waistline have all swollen in recent years, but his performances have deserted him. Lost his rag completely last summer when, as India's 12th man in Colombo, Sri Lankan fans mocked him as 'waterboy'," the newspaper said.
    Yuvraj has a fellow cricketer for company in former England captain Kevin Pietersen who yesterday claimed that his selfless resignation from skipper's job was the reason for England's Ashes victory.
    "Switch hits and tattoos, Lamborghinis and Liberty-X -- Kevin Pietersen is a very different type of English cricketer.
    'The walking ego' is how Shane Warne described Pietersen earlier this winter.
    "There's no doubt that Pietersen's flamboyance and arrogance have contributed to his downfall on a number of occasions, most notably when he reaches 94 and starts looking for the photographers," the newspaper said.
    Others in the list include boxing legend Muhammad Ali, current Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho, basketball great Michael Jordan and golf legend Nick Faldo.
