Yuvraj Singh is in the team because of Dhoni, said Yograj Singh

By Sihyeu Prakash Singh -

Yuvraj is making a comeback in ODIs after 2013; In the first warmup tie for India A against England, he scored a quickfire 56 from 48 balls, which included six fours and two sixes. But, his comeback looked incomplete despite a brilliant innings. Oh yes! The Yograj bomb on Dhoni was missed, but not for too long.

In an interview to Maharashtra Times, Yograj once again blamed Dhoni and said “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 Singh added “Dhoni’s step down as Captain is the reason for Yuvraj’s comeback,”

Looks like the father doesn’t really follow his son’s cricket. Yuvraj performed amazingly well in domestic cricket and his innings at Lahli was the reason for his comeback, as selectors said. But what everyone failed to get in Yograj’s statement is, in other words he is crediting Dhoni for Yuvraj’s comeback and that is totally cool, because we know their bonding. The video posted by Yuvraj on Instagram is an example. Have a look:

Yograj Singh once labeled Dhoni as Raavan, “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,” he had said.
