Mahendra Singh Dhoni has invited the wrath of Yuvraj Singh’s dad Yograj Singh who has some shocking revelations to make about the Indian skipper. Speaking to a Hindi news channel Yograj has said, "There will be a day when Dhoni will be left to beg and become penniless and would not get any favour. Dhoni was nothing. He has become a God in cricket just because of media. Media has crowned him as a great which he never deserved. There was a time when he had nothing but today he sits in front of media and rips off the media persons. He laughs at media who has given him so much hype. He laughs at the Indian people who clap when he scores a run. Honestly, if I was a media person, I would have slapped Dhoni right there."

According to media sources, Yuvraj’s father was infuriated after his son's exclusion from the ICC World Cup 2015 squad. He went on to compare Dhoni to Ravana, a villain in Hindu mythology and added, "Dhoni is arrogant. The way Ravana's pride came to an end, Dhoni will also suffer some day. He considers himself much above Ravana. I feel really ashamed when other cricketers come and tell me about Dhoni. Earlier, I used to think that people must be cribbing about Dhoni due to jealousy. But when the cricketers told me about him, I think I have never seen a terrible person like him ever in my life."

The Indian Cricket team which won the ICC World Cup in 2011 lost in a very dramatic semifinal to Australia on March 26 this year. Yograj criticised Dhoni in relation to the dismal performance of the team and elaborated, "In the 2011 final, Yuvraj was going to bat but Dhoni stopped him and went to bat and became a hero. Why didn't he bat at No. 4 this time? Why did he go at No. 6? If he considers himself great, then he should have batted at No. 6 and guided India to a win against the Aussies."
