Yograj Singh, the former cricket, who is also the father of left-handed veteran Yuvraj Singh, was promulgated in front of media to exculpate for his son. Despite Yuvraj has become no more an antihero because of his 11 off 21 balls, but Yograj believes that he should not be only blamed for the defeat in the final of ICC World Twenty20 on Sunday.

“Yuvraj should not be singled out.” He said, being asked weather is son engrossing 21 deliveries was the prime reason for India losing the World Cup Twenty20 final against Sri Lanka at Mirpur.

Virat Kohli, though, smashed into a stunning 77, but it could not help the side to get out the hock. Sri Lanka bowlers prevented hustling Yuvraj, thus impeding the acceleration of this side in the scoreboard to a huge extension.

Yuvraj who had been rigged out into a catastrophe on Sunday evening, had even left a baffling impact to the in-front batsman at the other end also.

Because of Yuvraj’s false step, the last four overs of the innings did not yield a huge score but only 19 runs.

Although, Yograj, the right-handed batsman, said that whenever a team got defeated, there is criticism from all over the place from all quarters. “When we lose, there is criticism from all sides. Ups and downs are part of life and part of this game as well.” He said.

When it comes to bring up the lean patch that Yuvraj has get through in recent past, Yograj, who had played one Test and six ODIs for India, said, “When a player gets  through lean patch sometimes, the state of mind becomes such that he begins to think if he does not score runs he may be out of the squad or the team may lose.”

“When West Indies wiped out the 1983 World Cup to India, Sir Vivian Richards went to the Dressing room and congratulated the team saying they performed better cricket and merited to win.” He said.

He also added that sportsman spirit is quite more relevant in the game.

He suggested his son Yuvraj to play more domestic cricket and said that he should also spend a few days with his father to get coached.
