Yuvraj Singh's father attacks Dhoni again

MS-Dhoni Indian skipper M.S. Dhoni

Yograj Singh, father of cricketer Yuvraj Singh, has again hit out at Indian skipper M.S. Dhoni's for repeatedly shuffling his son's batting order and not using his bowling skills to his full potential.

"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),” he was quoted by Yograj as saying.

"What the f**k is happening? What is the captain trying to prove?," said Yograj.

He further contented that when shuffling takes place often, it will raise questions in player's mind over his importance on the team. He added that the captain should be aware of what he is dealing with.

"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," he told the newspaper.

Earlier, Yograj had alleged that Dhoni was responsible for keeping Yuvraj out of the team.

On Sunday, India entered semi-final of the ongoing World Twenty20 after it defeated Australia by six wickets in a thriller. Kohli led India to win with his unbeaten 82 off 51 balls knock.

India will take on West Indies in semi-final on Thursday in Mumbai.
