As per the stylish left-handed-batsman MS Dhoni is a busy man and he doesn't pick up anybody's phone.
"I think he is very busy. I tried to find him, as usual, Dhoni doesn't pick up anybody's phone. I think he was busy with T20 games in America and I am sure he will help me through this," Yuvraj told media persons, when asked about Dhoni's absence.
MS Dhoni has returned from the USA after playing India's T20I series against West Indies. Dhoni was last seen interacting with media persons during launch of his biopic MS Dhoni: The Untold Story. The film will be released on September 30, 2016.
Actor Sushant Singh Rajput is playing on-screen Dhoni in the film directed by Neeraj Pandey and produced by Fox Star.
Yuvraj's father Yograj Singh has always blamed Dhoni for his son's failure in cricket and called out Dhoni by names.
Earlier, former India cricketer VVS Laxman said the same during his retirement from Test cricket. Laxman, back then, told media persons that he tried contacting the skipper (MS Dhoni), to talk about his retirement decision, but latter wasn't available.
