Yuvraj Singh makes a controversial statement against MS Dhoni and team management

Yuvraj Singh also cited examples of others ex-players, who were not backed in their final days.

Yuvraj Singh has been very vocal about the frustration he had with the team management. He cited his frustration during his time under the leadership of Virat Kohli and Ravi Shastri. Yuvraj now had commented that MS Dhoni went on to play for India because of the backing of the coach and captain.

MS Dhoni last played for India in the 2019 World Cup semi-final against New Zealand. India lost the match and was out of the World Cup. MS Dhoni gave up white ball captaincy in 2017. This was done so that the new captain, Virat Kohli could prepare his team for the 2019 World Cup. Since leaving captaincy, there were many times when Dhoni was under scrutiny for his performances with the bat. His place in the team, however, was never in danger because of the backing he received from team management.

“Definitely when you have support from the coach and the captain it helps. Look at Mahi (MS Dhoni) towards the end of his career. He had so much support from Virat and Ravi Shastri. They took him to the World Cup, he played till the end and went on to play 350 games. I think support is very important but in Indian cricket everybody will not get support,”

Yuvraj Singh said to media.

Yuvraj Singh also talked about how he did not get ample chances during the final years of his career. He also talked about many other players like VVS Laxman, Harbhajan Singh, Gautam Gambhir, and Virender Sehwag who were not backed by the management in their final days of playing. He also mentioned how a player can perform better when he is assured of his position in the team. Whereas a player constantly in fear of his place in the team finds it very difficult to perform seeing a sword hanging on his head.

Naturally, there was a backlash from fans as they did not like the comments made by Yuvraj Singh and told him to move on in his life.

This is not the first time an Indian ex-player has cited their frustrations with BCCI and management. This time, however, including MS Dhoni in their frustrations is not a good thing and will generally receive backlash from all cricket fans in the world.
