New Delhi | In yet another scathing attack, Yograj Singh, father of ace cricketer Yuvraj Singh, has lambasted Team India skipper M S Dhoni, comparing him with Ramayana’s mythological villain Ravana.
Earlier, Yograj had accused Dhoni of having a hand in his son not being selected for the ICC Cricket World Cup 2015.
But this time, he went a step ahead by cursing the Indian captain of being ”penniless” some day.
Talking to a news channel, he said, ”Dhoni is arrogant. The way Ravana’s pride came to an end, Dhoni will also suffer some day.
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.
Yograj further alleged that Dhoni was nothing, but whatever he is today is because of media. He blamed the media of giving him a crown he did not deserve.
”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, said he.
”Honestly, if I were a media person, I would have slapped Dhoni right there.”
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.
