Former all-rounder Yuvraj Singh of the Indian team revealed that he was not selected in the 2019 World Cup. He said that Mahendra Singh Dhoni had already told me that his name would not be considered during the selection. Yuvraj played his last ODI on the West Indies tour in 2017. He retired in 2019.
Yuvraj said, "When I came back, Virat Kohli supported me. If they had not supported me then I would not have returned. While Dhoni showed me the right picture for the 2019 World Cup. He told me that now the selectors are not considering your name. Dhoni told me that they did everything they could for me. "
'Dhoni had full faith in me till the 2011 World Cup'
Yuvi said, "Until the 2011 World Cup, Dhoni had full faith in me and used to tell me that you are my main player. Then on returning after illness, the game had changed a lot and much had happened in the team. For this reason, as far as the 2015 World Cup is concerned, you cannot talk about anything, so it was a matter of deciding on your own. I understood that as a captain sometimes you are not able to answer everything, because, in the end, you have to pay attention to your team's performance. "
Yuvi's performance in Champions Trophy was also not good
Yuvraj played his last ODI on the West Indies tour in 2017. Earlier, he had scored 150 runs in ODIs against England in January. This was the best innings of his career. Yuvraj also played the 2017 Champions Trophy, but his performance was not good. He had scored just 53 against Pakistan.

My father had no problem with my decision to retire. '
