NEW DELHI: After former Indian cricketer and Yuvraj Singh’s father Yograj Singh lashed out at the Captain of the Indian Cricket Team, Mahendra Singh Dhoni, the star who was bought at Rs. 16 crore by Delhi Daredevils at the IPL 8 Auction on Monday came to extinguish the fire lit by his father.
Right-arm fast-medium bowler of his time, Yograj slammed MS Dhoni accusing him of having personal problems with his son.
“What is MS Dhoni’s problem with my son, Yuvraj played for India even when he was suffering from Cancer,” Yograj said aiming his target at Dhoni for his alleged role in snubbing Yuvraj Singh for the ongoing ICC World Cup 2015.
However, the 33-year-old all rounder player was not even selected in the preliminary team of 30 likely for the World Cup. While there was a massive hue and cry over the same, the selectors believed that they have to move on.
It was not Yuvraj Singh alone who was overlooked, there were also others including Virender Sehwag, Harbhajan Singh, Gautam Gambhir and Zaheer Khan who faced the similar embarrassment. All these stars played an important in the victory of the 2011 World Cup Championship.
The surprising anger of Yuvraj Singh’s father forced the star of the IPL 8 auction to come out and cover up the chaos created by his father. “Like every parent, my dad is also passionate and I am sure got carried away always enjoyed playing under Mahi n would do so in future,” he said in a tweet.
On the other hand, the last few words of the tweet should certainly not go unnoticed which indicates that the ‘Man of the Series’ at the World Cup 2011 is not really planning to take a back seat of retirement anytime soon.
Well, that definitely is great news for the Yuvi fans.
