New Delhi: Father Yograj Singh has embarrassed Yuvraj again. In less than a day after Yuvraj praising M S Dhoni, Yograj blamed Dhoni for son’s long absence from the Indian team.
“Yuvraj is in the team because Dhoni is no longer the captain. I had said this couple of years ago that he would be back in the team once Dhoni wasn’t the captain. It’s proved true now,” Yograj said in an interview to Maharashtra Times.
This must have been a shock for Yuvraj, who had shot a video starring himself and Dhoni. In the video Yuvraj tells Dhoni, “You’ve been one of the best captains ever, I would like to tell you that. It’s been amazing playing under you, winning three big championships, world cups, and being the No 1 Test team under you. Thanks for giving me the opportunity to go and slog as always.”
The video was posted by Yuvraj with caption: “Well done @mahi7781 on your career as captain ! 3 major wins 2 w cups time to unleash the old dhoni”.
Yuvraj was selected for the ODI and T20 squads for the England series this month. Yuvraj Singh had last played an ODI in 2013.
Yuvraj has always distanced himself from Yograj, and has said that there was no differences with Dhoni. When Yuvraj was not selected for World Cup in 2015, Yograj had said, “Dhoni is arrogant. The way Ravana’s proud came to an end, Dhoni will also suffer some day. He considers himself much above Ravana.” (News24Bureau)
