Chandigarh: His son and hero of the 2011 cricket World Cup may have been ignored for the next month's mega event, but cricketer-turned-actor Yograj Singh today said the development has not affected Yuvraj Singh's spirits as he is a tough guy who does not melt like snow and exuded confidence that he will bounce back soon.
"Yuvraj is not somebody who melts like snow, I have not raised him that way. He is a tough guy, who is known to weather every storm that comes his way. What if his caravan has left him behind, he too will race ahead and bounce back soon," the former Test cricketer told PTI today.
Yograj Singh said that his son always remains in high spirits no matter how difficult the situation he may be facing.
"Oh no worries, dad, I will come to Chandigarh and we will practice soon, this was Yuvraj's message to me today," Yograj said.
Yuvraj Singh was not included in India's 15-member squad for the World Cup to be held in Australia and New Zealand from next month.
Yograj recalled that how his cricketing career had been cut short "because of someone who did not wish to see me progress".
When asked if he feels that history was repeating itself now that Yuvraj too had been ignored and his recent and past contributions overlooked, Yograj said, "After all, there is justice in God's court. Even mighty rulers who had great false pride one day had to bite the dust".
