Yuvraj Singh’s brilliant 150 in the second India vs England ODI at Cuttack’s Barabati Stadium has cooled down the flamboyant left-hander’s angry father, Yograj Singh.
A fiery bowler during the days of Kapil Dev, Yograj Singh has been a Mahendra Singh Dhoni hater and blamed India’s 2011 World Cup-winning captain for Yuvraj Singh’s ouster from the Indian cricket team.
After Thursday, when Yuvraj Singh and Mahendra Singh Dhoni put on a match-winning 256-run fourth wicket stand at Barabati Stadium, Yograj has ‘forgiven’ the man who earlier this month stepped down as India’s limited overs skipper.
“God bless Dhoni. I wanted him to score his hundred today,” Yograj adding: “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.”
