Few had heard of Yuvraj Walmiki till Hockey India made a disastrous mistake. In what is well known by now, HI announced a 'reward' of Rs 25,000 each for the members of the team that won the Asian Champions Trophy. The players rejected the paltry reward, following which the Sports Ministry and some state governments endeavoured to do damage control by offering reasonably decent cash prizes. It was during the course of such frantic fire-fighting that many heard of the 'other' Yuvraj, who is among the most talented hockey players the nation currently has.
