The former Indian all rounder, Yuvraj Singh made a big revelation on Monday saying that he didn’t get support from Former Indian Captain MS.Dhoni and Current Indian Captain Virat Kohli. Yuvraj Singh made his debut under Sourav Ganguly’s captaincy against Australia in Champions Trophy,2000 and in his debut match he played a match winning knock of 84 runs.
Yuvraj Singh played under captaincy of Rahul Dravid, Virender Sehwag, Gautam Gambhir, M.S Dhoni and Virat Kohli but he never captained India. “I have played under Sourav and had a lot of support from him. Then Mahi took over. It’s a difficult choice to make between Sourav and Mahi. I have more memories of time under Sourav because of the support he gave me. I didn’t have that kind of support from Mahi and Virat,” Yuvraj said in an interview to Sportstar.
Yuvraj Singh is considered one of India’s ODI greats. He had a big contribution in making India win the 2007 T20 World Cup and 2011 ODI WC. Yuvraj Singh was also in contention, when MS Dhoni was selected to lead India in T20 World Cup. Yuvraj Singh’s father Yograj Singh is regularly seen blasting MS.Dhoni for his son’s exit from Indian team.
After 2011 World Cup, Yuvraj Singh was not regularly seen playing for India. Yuvraj who was considered a big match player was not selected in World Cup 2015 and this lead to many controversy about rift between M.S Dhoni and Yuvraj Singh. But Yuvraj Singh again made a comeback in 2016 T20 World Cup where India reached the Semis.
In Virat Kohli’s Captaincy Yuvraj Singh gave his career best performance, this left the fans assuming that Yuvi will play the 2019 World Cup but after India failed in 2017 Champions Trophy against Pakistan in finals, Yuvraj Singh was dropped from the team. Yuvraj Singh has played 304 ODI matches, 110 under Sourav Ganguly’s captaincy and 104 under Dhoni’s leadership.
Yuvraj in his interview also mentioned about Paddy Upton and how he can help this current Indian team. This Indian team needs a good guy who can talk to them on matters off the field. Their off-the-field issues reflect on their on-field performances. What they need is a psychologist of authority who can guide them in personal issues,” Yuvraj said.
