Disappointed that Yuvraj Singh is not in the World Cup Team: Varun Dhawan

Varun DhawanActor Varun Dhawan has expressed disappointment over Yuvraj Singh not making the cut for India’s 15 member squad for the ICC Cricket World Cup 2015.

“Obviously I’m a big Yuvi fan, so obviously I am sad about it. I obviously want India to do well no matter what. But.. little disappointed that Yuvraj is not in the team despite having scored three consecutive centuries in the Ranji Trophy” he said.

Yuvraj’s all round performance was instrumental in helping India lift the Cricket World Cup in 2011. His career hit a setback after he was diagnosed with a rare form of Lung cancer. The cricketer recovered from the disease and successfully made a comeback to the cricket team. However, his consistent form meant that he failed to cement his place in the squad.

Varun awaits the release of his film ‘Badlapur’, which releases in theatres on February 20.



  • Want Gambhir and Yuvi in the team. They give big performances in crucial matches. Gambhir was the top scorer in both 2007 and 2011 world cup finals. And Yuvi played stellar knocks in both these winning world cups.

  • without yuvraj India will win this world cup Mark my words…
    I’m big fan of dhoni but very disappointed with his decision…

  • Yes, even I am disappointed. They didn’t select the man who defeated Death. They didn’t select the tiger of punjab.

  • I don’t even want to sit in front of the TV watching world cup if Yuvi is not playing… in fact i’ve not watched any of india’s recent matches…he is match winner.. Team Selection comtee sucks…Disappointed

  • @xedon i think u don’t know anything about cricket…. Yuvrajsingh is big player… He could destroy any bowler…. Go hell…

  • how could they select stuart binny ? oh yes his father roger binni is one of the selectors.MISS YOU YUVI.

  • Currently team india full of politics…so no place for yuvi n gambhir….mark my word india will not even reach final…….miss u sachin…n those fascinating cricket year’s when sachin ganguly sehwag yuvi all are playing. …

  • INDIA will WIN WORLD CUP without YUVI . Team INDIA has better players i.e. rohit , kohli and THE BEST – DHONI

  • i think india will not win wc because no bowler is performing well they drop best bowler zaheer khan who got highest wicket in previous wc yuvraj was also match winner in some matches now only virat kohli n ashwin are hope for batting n bowling respectively.

  • no yuvraj = blame dhoni
    no zaheer = blame dhoni
    no gambhir = blame dhoni
    no pathan = blame dhoni
    india losing match = blame dhoni

    arjun kapoor releasing tevar = blame dhoni
    one doggey in neighbourhood died = blame dhoni :p LOL

    even i’m a great fan of yuvi but the yuvi admirers in this page are the same person who completely bashed him in 2014 T20 world cup final.

  • dhoni is good captain…but he converted csk team into india …without yuvi i am not gonna watch this wc….

  • i also feel guys zaheer was the main reason to win india world cup he had taken 21wickets in the previous world cup which was highest i can,t understand why they drop zaheer

  • we INDIA always struggle to get a good and consistence bowler…..the only reason is because even if a kid plays his first match he wants to bat first…no on wants to bowl :p

    lame but could be one of the reasons :p …! indian players dont get diet as overseas player,,,,,we hardly get pace bowlers.

  • Not sure what Yuvis record is in Aus but I dont think it is as bad as others stats are so must be another reason for omitting him… Recent form of Yuvis is good but domestic crkt is different to Intl Crkt granted but Yuvi has a decade long experience of Top Intl Crkt which could have been utilised here… Team could have used his experience but good luck to the final 15 regardless… Do us proud boys

  • The current tour to Aus has come at the exact right moment with WC following- give our boys a good chance to adjust to the pace of the Aus wickets and the extra bounce that can be exerted when the ball is banged in half way down- maybe selectors were thinking the current crop are in the best place to make the necessary adjustments- dont know what they were thinking but time to get behind our boys is fast approaching and Im sure Yuvi will be behind them to 100%… Go India Go

  • Yuvraj was no doubt a wonderful player.Its good to give chance to youngsters.But same time its looking surprise how all the players who had big role in WC success 2007 & 2011 aren’t in the team.Definitely it’d their form but what made happen that likes of Harbhajan,Gambhir,Sehwag,Yuvraj,Zaheer is not in the team while all these are capable to play.
    Let’s see how WC fares for India.
