“There are a lot of times he (Dhoni) goes wrong but then you can’t say that to him. Zyada baat nahi karte woh (he doesn’t speak much). He speaks only between overs if he thinks he needs to point out something,”
Yadav had recently won the ‘Outstanding Performer of The Year Award’. However, following the comments which surfaced, Dhoni’s fans left no stone unturned to troll Yadav.
Later, Yadav took to his Instagram to clarify on the matter where he denied making those comments and also slammed the media for spreading the fake news.
“Here we go for another made up controversies by our media who loves to make tangy rumours for no reason. Just want to throw some light on the issue that has been proliferated by some people, that the news is totally false. I didn’t give any inappropriate statement about anyone. #Much respect Mahi bhai,” he wrote.
