MUMBAI: Well, undoubtedly, this cannot be just a statement. Former Indian cricketer and Yuvraj Singh’s father, Yograj Singh’s fury against India Captain MS Dhoni is nothing new for their fans. It became all the more prominent when Yograj rued his son’s omission from ICC Cricket World Cup 2015 and blamed skipper MS Dhoni for it. Yograj Singh, going a step ahead this time, cursed the Captain Cool and said that ‘there will be day when Dhoni will be left with nothing and will have to beg but will not get any favour’.
Speaking to a news channel, Singh said, “Dhoni was nothing. He has become a God in cricket only because of media who has crowned him as a ‘great’ which he never deserved.
Claiming the Dhoni has been ridiculing media all this while, Yograj Singh said, “There was a time when Dhoni had nothing, but today, he sits in front of media and rips off the media people. He not only laughs at media people who have given him all this hype, but also laughs at his Indian fans who clap when he score runs.”
“If you ask me, honestly, I was a media person, I would have slapped Dhoni right there,” he added.
Ace player Yuvraj Singh, who helped Team India to win the World Cup 2011, was ignored by the selectors for the World Cup 2015 held in Australia and New Zealand.
Comparing Dhoni to villain Ravana of Ramayana, Yuvraj’s father said, “Dhoni is very arrogant. The way Ravana’s proud came to an end, Dhoni will also suffer some day. He considers himself much above Ravana.”
“I feel sad to see other cricketers coming up to me and telling me about Dhoni. Initially I thought they were cribbing due to jealousy but then the cricketers told me about him, I feel I have never seen a terrible person like him ever in my life,” he added.
Further escalating his criticism towards the India Captain, Yograj Singh said, “In the 2011 final, Yuvraj was going to bat but Dhoni stopped him and went to bat and became a hero. 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.”
Cursing Dhoni, Yograj said, “There will be a day when Dhoni will be left to beg and become penniless and would not get any favour.”
