Yograj Singh blames MS Dhoni for son’s exclusion from World Cup


Yograj Singh, father of discarded Indian cricketer Yuvraj Singh, on Monday blamed Indian skipper MS Dhoni for the all-rounder’s exclusion from India’s squad for ICC World Cup 2015.

“If MS Dhoni is having personal issues with my son, I won’t do anything. God will do justice,” Yograj said.

Notably, Yuvraj, Man of the Series in the 2011 World Cup, was one of the five senior Indian cricketers who were ignored by the selectors for ICC’s pinnacle event.

“Pray India wins World Cup under your captaincy (MS Dhoni) but nothing can be more sad that you behaved this way,” Yograj added.

Yuvraj, however, defended his father’s statement and said that his father got carried away with him not playing the World Cup and he always enjoyed playing under MS Dhoni.

Yuvraj Singh, along with Gautam Gambhir, Harbhajan Singh, Virender Sehwag and Zaheer Khan, were excluded from India’s 30-man squad for the prestigious event.
