It turned out to be a memorable evening for underprivileged children from 'Make A Wish Foundation' as they got to spend few fun moments with members of the Indian and Sri Lankan teams here on Monday.

The occasion was a fun fair at the GD Somani school in south Mumbai here organised by the Yuvraj Singh Foundation.

While speedsters - Zaheer Khan, S Sreesanth, left arm tweaker Pragan Ojha and stylish middle order batsman Yuvraj were present from the Indian team, the Sri Lankans were represented by skipper Kumar Sangakkara and ex-captain Mahela Jayawardene.

The children, many of them suffering with life threatening diseases, had to wait for over two hours from the scheduled time but the cricketers made up for the delay by handing them gifts of their choice, besides taking pictures with them.

"Its a great opportunity to make a few wishes of these kids possible," Yuvraj said on the occasion.
