Kuldeep Yadav hit the media to try to get a controversy over the air about his remarks about the former Indian captain MS Dhoni.
The Chinaman reportedly made comments in the margins of a recent event when asked if, at any time in his career, he had questioned the former India World Cup-winning captain about his tips.
"There are a lot of times he (Dhoni) goes wrong, but then you can't tell him that," Kuldeep was quoted as PTI. "Zyada benefits nahi karte woh (he doesn't speak much). He only speaks between overs when he thinks he needs to declare something," he said. But then he faces social media flak.
However, speaking to the indianexpress.com, Yadav scraped the air about his comments and blamed the media for spreading false news.
"These are rumors that people like to spread and I have no idea why. I didn't give an interview about this, so I don't understand how the media came up with these comments," Yadav said.
"MS Dhoni is a senior player and there is no doubt that his tips have been invaluable, not just for me but for the entire team. His presence behind the stumps makes our work easy and nobody can change that fact," he added. to it.
The chinaman also shared an Instagram story in which he wrote: "Here we go for a new made-up controversy by making our media who love making clear rumors clear. I just want to shed light on the issue that some people have spread, that the news is totally untrue. I have not made inappropriate statements about someone. # Much respect Mahi bhai. "
Regarded as one of the smartest brains of today's cricket, Dhoni was the captain of the Indian team that won the ICC T20 World Cup 2007 and then led the side to the ODI World Cup title in 2011.
