Mumbai: Yograj Singh, father of former cricketer Yuvraj Singh is known for his critical behaviour towards MS Dhoni. In the past, Yograj Singh had also accused Dhoni of being the reason for his son Yuvraj's career going downwards.

Yograj has once again targeted the former Indian skipper and has used language which is outright offensive. Yograj lashed out at the Indian team management for the retirement of Ambati Rayudu, saying that the management did injustice to Rayudu.

 

He also asked Rayudu to not fully retire from cricket and give a response to selectors who decided to ignore him.

"Rayudu should've continued playing, more and more. He should've played Ranji Trophy, Irani Trophy, Duleep Trophy, scoring 100s, 200s, 300s with not outs. He still has a lot of cricket left in him," Yograj said as per a report by news agency NNIS.

Yograj Singh did not stop there. He launched a direct attack on MS Dhoni by calling him 'filth'.

"Rayudu, my son you took the decision in haste. Come out of retirement and show them what you are capable of. People like MS Dhoni will not remain forever, filth like these will not remain forever." It's another expression of dislike which the 61-year old has for MS Dhoni.

Rayudu was not included in the initial 15-member squad of Team India for the ICC World Cup 2019. All-rounder Vijay Shankar was picked in place of Rayudu.

But then the injuries to opener Shikhar Dhawan and Shankar left the door open for the selectors to call up Rayudu as a possible replacement. However, BCCI decided to choose Rishabh Pant as a replacement for Dhawan and Mayank Agarwal as a replacement for Shankar. This could have been the reasons behind Rayudu's decision of immediate retirement.
