Yuvraj Singh’s father curses MS Dhoni to become penniless one day
Yograj Singh, father of ace cricketer Yuvraj Singh triggered a major controversy as he cursed India’s ODI Captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni for his son’s exclusion from the ICC World cup 2015 squad.
The emotional father cursed that the Indian Captain would be left penniless one day. “Dhoni was nothing. He has become a God in cricket just because of media. Media has crowned him as a great which he never deserved”, Yograj said.
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”, Yograj said.
Yuvi’s father compared Dhoni with Ramayana’s mythological villain 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,” Yuvraj’s father said.
“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 added.
Yuvraj, Man of the Series in the 2011 World Cup, was one of the five senior Indian cricketers who were ignored by the selectors for the World Cup this year. Yuvraj, along with Gautam Gambhir, Harbhajan Singh, Virender Sehwag and Zaheer Khan, were even excluded from India’s 30-man preliminary squad for the mega event.
Cursing Dhoni, Yograj said: “There will be a day when Dhoni will be left to beg and become penniless and would not get any favour.”
