Former Indian batsman Yuvraj Singh, along with his ex-teammate Harbhajan Singh engaged themselves in a light banter, where they took a subtle dig at MSK Prasad on Twitter.


The former Chairman of Selectors, Prasad, was involved in a few controversial decisions regarding the inclusions and exclusions he made during his tenure.

Prasad made a questionable choice of dropping out Ambati Rayudu in the 2019 World Cup squad, despite him being backed for the number four spot in the one-year run-up to the multilateral tournament.


Also, Prasad has received criticism for not giving a longer rope to former legends Yuvraj and Bhajji, along with seasoned campaigner Suresh Raina.

It all started with Yuvi’s gratitude post for Sourav Ganguly along with the batch of selectors, who helped him progress at the international level in 2000.

“I think we should all thank @SGanguly99 and the first batch of my selectors for giving me this opportunity!,” Yuvraj captioned while retweeting one of the posts from his fan page.



To which Bhajji asked, “Anything for the last batch.” Yuvraj, in his trademark cheeky manner, responded by saying, “Lol no comments.”

In an earlier interview with Espncricinfo, Bhajji rued about not being given a look at by selectors despite performing consistently, due to his age.

“They will not look at me because they feel I am too old. Also I don’t play any domestic cricket. [In the] Last four-five years they did not look at me even though I was doing well in the IPL, taking wickets and I had all my records to back my case,” he said.

Yuvraj, who announced his retirement from the game after being overlooked for the 2019 World Cup, mentioned the need for better selectors.

“We do need better selectors, for sure. Selectors’ job is not easy. Whenever they select 15 players, there will be talks about what will happen to the other 15. It’s a difficult job, but their thinking in terms of modern-day cricket is not up to the mark. It’s my opinion,” Yuvraj said earlier in November 2019.
