Yuvraj Singh’s father Yograj launched another attack on India skipper MS Dhoni for underbowling his son in the ongoing World T20 and shuffling his batting order. (STATS || POINTS TABLE || FIXTURES)

“I have played under the greatest captain — Ashok Mankad — so I know what is going around. After not playing international cricket for two years and then making a comeback is fantastic — hats off to him. The captain expects him to perform and then suddenly drops him to No 7 (against Bangladesh).

“What the f**k is happening? What is the captain trying to prove?,” asked Yograj, in an interview to Mid-day.

Yograj feels too much shuffling raises questions in the mind of the player, and the captain needs to “be very careful in what he is dealing with”.

“When shuffling happens too often, questions arise in the mind (of the player) and that this is not cricket. A player wonders whether he is needed or not. The captain has to be very careful in what he is dealing with.

Yograj, however, has assured his son Yuvraj that his time would come.

“I have told my son not to worry because his time will come and that is just around the corner. Let me see MS Dhoni being dropped for two years or anybody else getting dropped and making a comeback to the Indian team and whether they score a single run,” Yograj said.

Yograj was not pleased with Dhoni not giving the ball to Yuvraj on pitches assisting the slower bowlers.

“If he (Dhoni) does not like him, he should bloody well tell the selectors about it. If he has got anything personal with him, he can take it out, but by doing this, you are destroying the team. Imagine Yuvraj not bowling on such turning wickets where he has claimed 15 wickets in the 2011 World Cup. The world is watching this,” said Yograj.

        Stupid. Why blame Dhoni? Ask your son to perform.

            Yuvaraj is a good player with loads of skills. Current form of Yuvi is not at its best. Dhoni believes Yuvaraj and that would be the reason he is back after couple of Years to the team. I would request you to give the rights to Yuvi to comment if he has such thoughts in mind rather you commenting and spoiling the cohesive team. Cricket has changed a lot during the decades. Please dont compare your days with the current.
