I feel really bad for Yuvi, his father continuously makes ridiculous statements and then he has to tweet everytime to cover it up

LOL. Dhoni is the humblest of the lot
Have you ever been to heaven at night?

I hate the media outlets that go after people like him for a interview. Just for masala. I don't think anyone enjoys these kind of crap. The standards for journalism is so low in Subcontinent.
More than hurting Dhoni he is making fun of his own son and himself. What a tool.
Yuvi rejected all the comments from his dad on twitter.

Yuvraj has gone past the best before date. The sooner his father realise this the better.

Maybe Yuvi's dad will have better luck pushing Ahmed Shahzad's case. There's quite a team of Avengers already on his side.

Yuvraj Singh Back In Team Only Because MS Dhoni Isn't Captain: Father Yograj
Yuvraj Singh may have been recalled to the India ODI set up, but father Yograj Singh still isn't happy. Yograj, who has hit out at former India captain MS Dhoni on numerous occasions in the past, once again took on the wicketkeeper-batsman as Yuvraj made the cut for India's ODI series against England. Last week, Yuvraj was rewarded by the national selectors for his solid show in Ranji Trophy with a call-up to the ODI side for the first time since December 2013.
Speaking to the Maharashtra Times, Yograj said Yuvraj was back in the team because Dhoni was no longer the captain. Yograj went on to add that he had predicted this two years ago and that is what has happened now.
Yograj has never shied away from speaking his mind about Dhoni and even launched a foul-mouthed tirade against the then skipper for excluding Yuvraj from India's World Cup squad in 2015. Yograj has consistently questioned Dhoni's attitude towards Yuvraj when it comes to team selection.
Dhoni and Yuvraj, though, have enjoyed a healthy equation throughout their career. Yuvraj has always applauded Dhoni's leadership and stated that he had absolutely no issues playing under him. Dhoni in characteristic style has always maintained a dignified silence.
Dhoni stepped down as skipper of India's limited-overs team last week after a brief meeting with chief select MSK Prasad. Virat Kohli, who was already Test captain, will now lead India in all three formats.
Yuvraj made an impressive return to the side as he cracked a fifty for India A against England XI on Tuesday in Mumbai. The left-hander's 48-ball 56 included six fours and two sixes.
Yuvraj will hope to impress the selectors as Kohli's Men in Blue take on Eoin Morgan's England side in the first ODI in Pune.

Dravid retired after he lost all his abilities when he kept repeatedly getting bowled in Aus.
Laxman retired cos he was finished too. In fact, selectors wanted to give him one last series vs NZ at home cos he wasn't announcing retirement.
Sehwag became a joke and was thrown out near the end.
Gambo too. Instead of working on his batting, he was more into excuses and media statements and was thrown out in the end.
If you say Dhoni didn't have a good relationship with many of our top players, its a fair thing.
But how was he responsible for unfairly throwing these people out? In fact, if anything, if he was responsible, he must be applauded. Too bad he couldn't throw out Tendulkar too. But that was humanely not possible.

if it was upto selectors he would have been dropped both as captain and player in tests.if the captain is shamelessly clinging on to his captaincy through backdoor channels it doesnt throw him in good light.
what has india achevied by continuing him as a captain and player post 2011? Test team stagnated big time and how can a team pergorm to its potential if the captain is not interested in the format and playing just for his bank balance

Truth be told, Dhoni is not the selfless captain he is made out to be.
He stuck on to T20 captaincy for 8 years when all other nations used that format to get fresh faces and captains on board.
In tests, he should have been sacked a long time ago. Srini played a huge role in him staying at the helm for so long (personally saved him in 2012 when Kohli was made captain by selectors who themselves made a wrong move of stripping Dhoni of ODI captaincy due to his test performances...after that Srini save, Dhoni continued on for a long time in all formats).
Even in ODIs, he should have retired after WC 2015 to give a new skipper chance to grow and build the team he wants. But he stuck on and now as per reports, he was asked to step down. No one knows whats the truth but if a guy doesn't quit for 2+ years after a WC, why would he suddenly quit after winning a home series against a team? Logical deduction says he was asked to step down (maybe politely but firmly).

Yograj's dad is an opportunist. He is using it to be in limelight. Nothing new there.
Its no secret MSD has wanted seniors out because they were nothing but holding back the ODI team and we could see the result with our fielding improving by miles.
Its no surprise though MSD has lot of haters because Sehwag, Dravid, Yuvraj, Gambhir have a huge fan base and they just can't take it that he wrote their premature demise which was unlike the usual culture of players staying on till they please.
Watching Sehwag still rue that he was dropped before he could retire just irks me, its like he thinks team owed him that for his performances before. Glad this culture is a thing of a past.

As for him going to Srini, I'd like you to share the concrete proof you have of that because you seem so sure. I am sure you also believe Srini and MSD fixed IPL to keep CSK on top. And that CSK players were favoured for selection.

It's plausible that Sreeni may have had a big part in over-ruling the decision of sacking Dhoni. What I don't get is how you came to a conclusion MSD was involved big time in Mohinder's ouster?

And to your point, who said I am ok with Dhoni continuing till 2014? Dhoni hardly kicked out seniors in test format, they were forced out due to poor performances and team's horrible showing away. RD and Laxman had to go, doesn't matter who was behind it.
The fact that he continued as captain was poor decision from selection committee, but I can see where they were coming from. Kohli was far from the player he was in 2014. And other seniors Sehwag, Gambhir, Zaheer just faded away, so you could say they had no choice but to continue with MSD till Kohli settled himself into test format. Which btw before 2014 series also he wasn't. In fact fortunately for him he used that series to show he belonged in the format.

UV and MSD after yday's game
11th January 2017, 22:00 #110
Yograj already looked like a fool because of how chummy MSD and Yuvi have become since Yuvi's return. He's now reminding everyone again. Basically it's jealousy.

I was not critical about MS Dhoni, he should have stood by Yuvraj Singh in tough times: Yograj
Yuvraj Singh’s father and former cricketer Yograj Singh congratulates his son for a wonderful comeback as the left-handed batsman scored his 14th ODI century against England in Cuttack and helped India take an unassailable 2-0 lead in the three-match series, which concluded in Kolkata on January 22.
Speaking to Indian Express, Yograj revealed that when he used to train Yuvraj, “People use to say that I’m being harsh with the nine-year old and said that if he continues to train like this he would die. They use to call me ‘a heartless father’ but somewhere or the other I had a belief that this child has the caliber to achieve great heights. We use to train for 2 to 3 hours everyday and I think the struggle he has gone or the patience he has shown, God has been kind to him.”
“I believe age doesn’t matter, it’s the way you keep your body fit. The way Yuvi, Virat Kohli or MS Dhoni are playing they can play till 40. Yuvraj has won us matches in past, he has played so many match winning knocks. Only thing that hurts me is that we wasted a lot of time. We could have won the 2015 World Cup if he would have been in the squad. Dhoni’s burden could have been shared.”
Yuvraj surpassed his personal best score of 139 which had come against Australia in 2003-04. His knock of 150 is also the highest by any Indian batsman against England.
Recalling his chat with Yuvraj, Yograj said “I told him that you could have scored a double hundred quite easily. Better try in the next game to which he laughed and said dad you had told me the same when I had scored 169 (in a Test match against Pakistan in 2007).”
“The way both of them (Yuvraj and MS Dhoni) batted and rescued India, this had made me forgive Dhoni. The way the duo batted and supported each other, this showed their love for each other, their love for the country.
Yuvraj and Dhoni put on 256 runs for the fourth wicket to help India post a mammoth 381/6 after being put into bat. Both the veterans came together with India in trouble at 25 for three, and put up a record partnership to put their team in a commanding position. Their partnership of 256 is now the second best partnership for the fourth wicket.
“This was the most beautiful partnership I have ever seen, both of them shouldered each other, running between the wickets was superb. I’m glad that Dhoni also scored his century. He deserved it. And with Dhoni and Yuvi in the middle, India can go and win tournaments in future. Both of them are great players and great finishers.”
“And I was never critical about him (Dhoni). According to me, being a captain he should have gone to the selectors and should have said that I need him (Yuvraj) in the middle order. But unfortunately he wasted 2-3 years of Yuvi’s cricket career. Better late than never, he is back and I thank Virat for showing confidence in my son and I’m sure he will go on to win more matches for India.”
Yuvraj, making his comeback after two years, had a disappointing match in Pune. The 35-year-old all-rounder scored 15 runs but found his feet in the second ODI at Cuttack. He scored his 14th ODI ton and his first after World Cup 2011 smashing 21 fours and three maximums in the process.
“When he is in the squad, you have a batsman, finisher, a fielder, bowler who can bowl crucial overs in between or provide you with wickets and more importantly an experienced player with valuable advises. I consider that he still has four-five years of cricket left in him.”
He also heaped praises for his daughter-in-law Hazel Keech and said that she motivates Yuvraj a lot. She follows the same diet, exercises together. By the Grace of God, she has been very supportive and I pray that the bond these two share, never ends.
“I know that my son keeps working harder and harder. I assume ‘mental strength’ of mind is very important and after fighting against cancer he has achieved that. He knows how to stay strong during tough time and I wish him much more success.” concluded Yograj, who feels Yuvraj will finish as one of the greats like Indian legend Sachin Tendulkar.
