Yuvraj Singh’s father Yograj Singh once again took a swipe at former India skipper MS Dhoni despite his son’s selection in the Indian squad after a lengthy spell on the sidelines.
In recent years, Yograj has on more than one occasion singled out Dhoni as the reason behind Yuvraj Singh being left out of the side.
On Wednesday, he reiterated his claim that Dhoni was biased against Yuvraj.
“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 was quoted as saying in an interview to Maharashtra Times.
In the past, Yograj had even compared Dhoni to Hindu mythological character Ravana.
“Dhoni is arrogant. The way Ravana’s proud came to an end, Dhoni will also suffer some day. He considers himself much above Ravana. I feel really ashamed when other cricketers come and tell me about Dhoni. Earlier, I used to think that people must be cribbing about Dhoni due to jealousy. But when the cricketers told me about him, I think I have never seen a terrible person like him ever in my life,” Yograj said.
Despite coming to Dhoni’s defence in the past, Yuvraj Singh, in September last year, remarked that the Ranchi dasher “never picks up his calls”.
