Kuldeep Yadav has slammed ‘fake’ media reports for making up a controversy out of nothing after his comments on former Indian captain MS Dhoni-led to a furore among fans. In a recent event, the Chinaman spinner was asked if he had at any point in his career questioned Dhoni’s suggestions from behind the stumps. To which he responded that sometimes even Dhoni goes wrong with his tips but “you can’t say it to him.”
“There are a lot of times he (Dhoni) goes wrong but then you can’t say that to him,” Kuldeep was quoted as saying. “Zyada baat nahi karte woh (he doesn’t speak much). He speaks only between overs if he thinks he needs to point out something,” he said further.
However, his comments were quick to spark a controversy and the spinner on Wednesday posted a story on his Instagram account to issue a clarification.
“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.
