Dhoni, Kohli, other cricketers backstabbed my son: Yuvraj Singh's father

Wednesday, May 6, 2020 • Tamil Comments

MS Dhoni and Virat Kohli have been considered two of the best cricketers in the country, as well as great captains. However, Yuvraj Singh's father Yograj Singh has criticized Dhoni's captaincy, comparing it to Sourav Ganguly's, claiming that the latter groomed his team members to become star players, while Dhoni failed to do so.

Yograj reportedly mentioned in an interview with a news agency, "The videos I have watched lately featuring Sehwag, Gambhir or Yuvraj, everybody has said something about Dhoni directly or indirectly. Why does everybody talk about Ganguly so much? When he started building the team, its ranking was 7. He took youngsters like Yuvraj, Kaif, Zaheer, Harbhajan, Sehwag and Gambhir and built a new team." He also mentioned that Yuvraj was destined to become captain, but Dhoni became the captain instead, and further added that along with Dhoni and Kohli, even the selectors have backstabbed Yuvraj. "It’s destiny that Yuvraj was supposed to become captain but Dhoni got the captaincy as well as a well-built team. Along with these two, I would say that even the selectors betrayed him. I had met Ravi recently. He asked me for a photograph. I called him and pointed out that all great players should get a send-off based on their performances. When Dhoni, Kohli or Rohit retire, I would request the board to give them a good send-off as they have done so much for Indian cricket. Many have backstabbed him and it hurts."
