Yograj Singh, was speaking on the lines where Dhoni was found few inches away from his crease as New Zealand's openers Martin Guptill who gave a stunning throw and aimed at one stump during the World Cup semi-final match in Manchester on July 10.  

According to India Times report, in a recent interview, Yograj Singh said that "Dhoni purposely didn't help India go past the target posted by New Zealand as he didn't want any other Indian captain to earn the honour of lifting the World Cup title. It was Ravindra Jadeja, who was trying his best from one end and got India close to the target. Also, Dhoni refused to make use of his chances."

During his whole interview, Yograj Singh targeted Dhoni as the only person to all the problems in Indian cricket team. "One boy (Ravindra Jadeja) comes and he starts playing the big shots at will without any worry. You are batting on the other end. You are telling him to play the shots while he was batting on 77. Before that, you told Hardik Pandya to take on the spinners,” Yograj added.

Further lashing out at Dhoni about his cricketing sense, Yograj asserted that "Mahendra Singh Dhoni, you have played so much cricket. Don’t you have any sense about what to do and what not? Did Yuvraj ever tell any other player to play the shots as you do? You got so many half-volleys, you hit huge sixes, what happened to you at that moment? Were you worried? You should have got out. What difference would it have made?."

Ever since World Cup series began, Dhoni has been a complete target to all whenever he didn't perform well. But till not Dhoni himself hasn't yet taken a call as to whether he is planning to continue playing or retiring from the field.
