Former India cricketer and renowned actor Yograj Singh has been doing the rounds in the media since his son Yuvraj Singh’s retired from international cricket last month. Yograj enticing eyeballs is primarily because of him being vocal about former India captain and current wicket-keeper batsman Mahendra Singh Dhoni.
From hinting that Dhoni had a role to play in Yuvraj’s retirement to accusing the 38-year old cricketer of purposely losing the semi-final against New Zealand in the recently concluded ICC Cricket World Cup 2019, Yograj has been continuing passing controversial statements on Dhoni in the recent times.
However, in a recent interview with News 24 Sports, Yograj seemed to make a U-turn on Dhoni saying that he never blamed him for India’s World Cup loss earlier this month. “I never said this. I never blamed MS Dhoni for the loss. It is not my version. You have asked a wrong question to the wrong person,” Yograj was quoted as saying.
