Yuvraj Singh bursts at Indian team management for World Cup loss

The decision to let Dhoni bat so low down the order garnered severe criticism from the cricketing world.

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.

The decision to send MS Dhoni at No.7 when chips were down in the first semi-final of the cricket World Cup against New Zealand at Old Trafford earned the Indian team management a strong backlash.

Indian Cricket Team's head coach Ravi Shastri said that the lack of a solid middle order and overdependence on the team's top order were the main reason behind the team's shock exit from the World Cup.

The No.4 batting position in the Indian unit was a bone of contention before the team had gotten underway to play the World Cup and nearly a month and a half later, the answers to the No.4 conundrum remains unanswered.

Meanwhile, Waugh also mentioned that it is England's clash with New Zealand in the World Cup final which will test their character.

The left-handed batsman also expressed disappointment in the case of Ambati Rayudu, who was snubbed twice during selection for the 2019 Cricket World Cup, which eventually led to the right-hander's unexpected retirement as well.

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

"Some of my friends were caught during the last IPL (Indian Premier League) and all got bail in 10 to 15 days and came back to this same business with double the energy", he told the BBC News.

Yograj also blamed Dhoni for Ambati Rayudu's retirement from global cricket. "How, when and where are not the questions that I will be able to tell you now", Rai said. Off late, we know Yuvraj Singh's father Yograj Raj leaves no stones upturned blaming Dhoni commenting bad over him.

But Dhoni was sent in to bat after Dinesh Karthik who came in at No. 5 followed by Hardik Pandya, raising quite a few eyebrows. It is unfortunate how they dealt with the whole situation. "I didn't understand the idea behind their plans". "You are looking to go and play the World Cup and suddenly you don't find a place", Yuvraj said of Rayudu.
