Yuvraj Singh Criticises Indian Team-Management After World Cup Failure

ICC World Cup 2019,CoA,Committee of Administrators

Yograj leaves no opportunity to bash at Indian batsman MS Dhoni and in the latest turn of events he has blamed Dhoni for India 2015 and 2019 semi-final loss.

Former Indian all-rounder and the World Cup hero of India, Yuvraj Singh also blamed the team management for their plans and tactics regarding the team, both before and during the tournament.

After the 2011 World Cup, Yuvraj Singh was diagnosed with Cancer.

The team management might be asked as to why he was persisted till the final series, at home against Australia, before the World Cup if the selectors were not convinced about him being a certainty for the number four slot.

The World Cup campaign will be particularly galling for Kohli.

Head coach Ravi Shastri has opened up on why Mahendra Singh Dhoni batted as low as No. 7 during India's semi-final defeat to New Zealand at the ongoing World Cup.

Yuvraj also expressed disappointment in the way the team management handled Ambati Rayudu insisting that the Andhra lad should have gotten his due especially after Shikhar Dhawan and Vijay Shankar were ruled out due to injuries.

"It was disappointing to watch what they did with Rayudu".

Chasing 240 runs on a swing-friendly Manchester wicket, India got off to a worst possible start, losing their top three - Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul and Virat Kohli (all scoring just 1) - as they were left reeling at 5-3. Rishabh Pant and Mayank Agarwal made their way to the World Cup squad despite Rayudu being named in a list of standbys. "You can't drop someone if he is unable to do well all the time".

Yograj also blamed Dhoni for Ambati Rayudu's retirement from worldwide cricket. Finally, we don't know what their plan was for No. 4. Yograj claimed that Ravindra Jadeja was dismissed when he was at 77 runs reason being Dhoni, as has told him to play huge shots and also told Pandya to attack the spinners. It is unfortunate how they dealt with the whole situation. While Rayudu hasn't said anything about his retirement or his tweet, Indian legend Yuvraj Singh has spoken on the matter. "If they lose then they are back to being one of the other teams that didn't quite make it", said Waugh, asserting, "But they have the potential to be a great one-day team".
