I would have slapped Dhoni, says Yuvraj Singh’s father

I would have slapped Dhoni, says Yuvraj Singh’s father : The controversy surrounding Yuvraj Singh’s absence of India’s 2014 World Cup squad is not going to go away any time soon.

A few days after the Indian media caused a storm over the star Indian cricketer’s exclusion from the tournament in 2015 his father, Yuvraj, has laid the blame at the captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni, who dropped his son at the discretion of his parents out of the team.

“Dhoni wasn’t anything. The media has praised him as a legend, which did not merit,” Yuvraj’s father Yograj Singh was quoted in a piece published through the Times of India.

“There was a time that the man had nothing but now He sits in front of media and is a slur on journalists. He laughs at the media that have given him so much publicity. He laughs at Indian people who cheer when they score a score,” Yograj said.

“Honestly, if I were a media person, I would have slapped Dhoni right there,” said the cricketer.

Yuvraj was an important player during India’s journey towards victory at the World Cup title in 2011 and was also recognized as the top most outstanding player in the tournament. In 2015, however Yuvraj was not considered to be a candidate for selection, along with seniors Gautam Gambhir, Harbhajan Singh, Virender Sehwag and Zaheer Khan.

Yograj continued to compare Dhoni to Ravana who is the antagonist in the Hindu sacred book Ramayana.

“Dhoni seems arrogant. When Ravana’s pride comes at an end Dhoni is likely to also suffer at some point. He is much more than Ravana,” Yuvraj’s father told his 33 year old Indian captain.

“I am embarrassed when other cricketers tell my story about Dhoni. Before, I used to believe that some people were criticizing Dhoni because of jealousy. However, when cricketers informed the story of Dhoni to me, I realized I’ve never met anyone like him in my entire life,” said Dhoni.

Yograj also critiqued the Indian captain’s choice to bat at the number 6 slot during the World Cup 2011 final against Sri Lanka, while throughout the tournament, he played in the number four slot.

“In 2011, the final Yuvraj had planned to play, but Dhoni interrupted him and took him to bat, becoming hero. Why did he not play at the No. 4. This time? Why did he go at No. 6? If he thinks he’s excellent, then he ought to have batted at the number. 6 and helped guide India to victory against the Australians.”

“There will be a day when Dhoni will be left to beg and become penniless and would not get any favour,” Yograj told reporters.

Yuvraj took to Twitter for clarification of his position following his father’s allegations enthralled the cricket-crazed Indian nation.

“I have nothing to do with the statements that are being made by the media! As I’ve said before , I have enjoyed playing under Dhoni with no problems at all,” the stylish left-handed batsman posted via his personal Twitter account.
