Yograj Singh, father of Yuvraj Singh, blasted on Indian captain, MS Dhoni once again for the exclusion of his son in the 2015 World Cup squad. He blames the Indian captain for the exclusion of Yuvraj Singh in the 15 member squad on world cup tour. He also cursed Dhoni to be left penniless and no one around to support him. His emotional side can be seen in the video where he also compares Dhoni with the villain of Hindu mythology, Raavan. He also added in his interview to a hindi news channel saying that Dhoni took away credit from his son in the 2011 World Cup final coming at No. 4 position instead of Yuvraj Singh and lead the team to win the second Cricket World Cup title. Yuvraj Singh bats at No. 4 position in international cricket matches for India and Dhoni comes down at no. 6. Yograj Singh added in his interview “Why didn’t he bat at No. 4 this time? Why did he go at No. 6? If he considers himself great, then he should have batted at No. 6 and guided India to a win against the Aussies.”
Yograj Singh’s interview: “Dhoni was nothing. He has become a God in cricket just because of media. Media has crowned him as a great which he never deserved. There was a time when he had nothing but today he sits in front of media and rips off the media persons. He laughs at media who has given him so much hype. He laughs at the Indian people who clap when he scores a run.”
He further adds “Honestly, if I were a media person, I would have slapped Dhoni right there. Dhoni is arrogant. The way Ravana’s proud came to an end, Dhoni will also suffer some day. He considers himself much above Ravana”
Yograj Singh cursed Dhoni saying “There will be a day when Dhoni will be left to beg and become penniless and would not get any favour”.
This could create a serious controversy and can make relations between the national players more intense.
On his father’s interview to a hindi news channel, Yuvraj Singh said his father became too emotional and there is nothing wrong between Mahi and me. He adds “I have always enjoyed playing under his captaincy and will do it in future too.”
