After his father Yograj Singh’s emotional outburst against MS Dhoni, Yuvraj Singh has come to the rescue saying he has nothing to do with the statements coming out in the media.
Yuvraj gave the clarification on twitter that he has enjoyed playing under Dhoni and there are no issues at all. The star left-handed batsman who was a key figure in India’s 2011 World Cup win said he is looking forward to meet Dhoni and congratulate him on becoming a father.
Yograj had blasted India’s ODI captain for his son’s exclusion from the ICC World Cup 2015 squad and had also cursed him to be left penniless one day.
“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”, Yograj said.
Yuvraj’s father compared Dhoni with Ramayana’s mythological villain Ravana.”Dhoni is arrogant. The way Ravana’s proud came to an end, Dhoni will also suffer some day. He considers himself much above Ravana,” Yuvraj’s father said.
Yograj mocked at the media for the way Dhoni handles them.
“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,” Yograj said.
“Honestly, if I were a media person, I would have slapped Dhoni right there”, Yograj said. Yuvraj, who helped India to win the 2011 World Cup, was one of the five senior Indian cricketers ignored by the selectors for the World Cup this year. Yuvraj’s father has also compared Dhoni with Ramayana’s mythological villain Ravana.
“I feel really ashamed when other cricketers come and tell me about Dhoni. Earlier, I used to think that people must be cribbing about Dhoni due to jealousy. But when the cricketers told me about him, I think I have never seen a terrible person like him ever in my life,” he added.
