Yuvraj Singh’s father Yograj Singh has a special request for the Indian Cricket Board. All great players, who had performed well for the country over the years, when they retire should be given a proper farewell feels the former India cricketer.
In an Instagram Live Chat with Sportstar last month, Yuvraj had said that he did not get similar support from Kohli and Dhoni as captains, as he had received from his first skipper Sourav Ganguly.
Speaking to News24, Yograj answered on the same topic: “Along with these two (Dhoni and Kohli), I would say that even the selectors betrayed him. I had met Ravi recently. He asked me for a photograph. I called him and pointed out that all great players should get a send-off based on their performances.
“When Dhoni, Kohli or Rohit retire, I would request the board to give them a good send-off as they have done so much for Indian cricket. Many have backstabbed him and it hurts.
“Indian selector Sharandeep Singh, he used to go to meetings and say that Yuvraj should be dropped. Such people are appointed as selectors who do not know ABC of cricket. What do you expect from them?
“It hurts when someone backstabs you. Everybody was worried about what would happen to them if Yuvraj continues to perform," said Yograj.
