Dhoni had better backing than other players: Harbhajan Singh

Ex-Indian cricketer Harbhajan Singh has trained his guns at the former team management accusing it of partiality leading to an abrupt end to many careers.

In a recent interview with Zee News days after he announced his retirement, Singh said India's second World Cup winning captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni "had a better backing than other players".

"Dhoni had better backing than other players and if the rest of the players would have got the same kind of backing, then they would have played as well. It wasn't as if the rest of the players forgot to swing a bat or didn't know how to bowl all of a sudden," he said.

The spin bowling legend said he would have played another four-five more years had he not been shown the exit gate.

Singh played 103 Tests, 236 One Day Internationals (ODIs) and 28 T20Is for India.

The spin bowler has 417 Test wickets in his kitty.
