Yograj Singh, the former India fast bowler and the father of Team India all rounder Yuvraj Singh has expressed his “happiness” over Dhoni’s century in the second ODI against England at Cuttack’s Barabati Stadium.
Till now the 58-year-old Yograj was critical of Dhoni’s captaincy and was blaming Dhoni for his son’s not-inclusion in the Indian team.
Interestingly, both Yuvraj and Dhoni reached hundreds on Thursday. Not only Yuvraj Singh struck his first ODI hundred since the 2011 World Cup but also reached his highest ODI score.
“God bless Dhoni. I wanted him to score his hundred to-day”, Yograj, speaking exclusively over his mobile, said.
“Yes, I have forgiven Dhoni. God will take care of his doings. I pray to God to forgive him for his evil against my son Yuvi”.
“He (Dhoni) wasted 3 years of Yuvi”s cricket career. It uncalled for. He should realise this and apologize to God almighty. I have always forgiven people who have done bad to me and my kids. God is great”.
Yograj was not watching the match on Thursday but was being updated about the match proceedings.
“I am training my daughter Amy for future tennis champion. I want her to win the Wimbledon one by the Grace of God”.
Yuvraj and Dhoni were both at the crease for above 250-run partnership.
“Both of them have been great cricketers and great finishers. God bless both of them”.
“Yuvi my son keeps working harder and harder. I pray to God all the time every time and thank him always. Congratulation to my loving elder daughter (in-law) Hazel. Be with all the time. Love each other and look after each other always”, Yograj concluded.
