Former Indian cricketer and Yuvraj Singh’s father Mr. Yograj Singh has severely criticized MS Dhoni by saying that the Indian Captain makes fun of the same media which has given him so ‘much hype’, and made him appear as a “God”.
Is it an emotion, wrath, frustration or anger? Yograj Singh has provided a trigger for a major controversy and war of words as he kept on blasting the Captain Cool, for his son’s exclusion from the ICC World Cup 2015 squad.
“There was a time when he had nothing but today he sits in front of media and rips off the media persons. He laughs at media who has given him so much hype. He laughs at the Indian people who clap when he scores a run. Honestly, if I were a media person, I would have slapped Dhoni right there,” he kept on ranting.
He even went as far as to compare Dhoni to 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,”
Dhoni, who played an outstanding role at No. 4 position in the 2011 World Cup final at the Wankhede Stadium, went to bat at No.6 in the 2015 World Cup Semi Final against Australia. .
Criticising Dhoni, Yograj 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.”
Yograj continued his criticism by saying: “There will be a day when Dhoni will be left to beg and become penniless and would not get any favour.”
Previously, he has made remarks against Dhoni after Yuvraj was not selected in the 15-member World Cup squad but at that time Yuvraj stepped in and cleared the air for the moment.
The Social Media, who stood up valiantly with MS Dhoni when Times Now started thrashing Dhoni and Company for tasting a defeat against Australia in the Semi Finals, got an opportuinity for trolling Yograj Singh’s controversial remarks. Here are some of them:
