The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has reacted to the sarcastic tweet of Ambati Rayudu regarding the much-debated selection snub.

After he was left out of the World Cup squad, Rayudu had taken to his Twitter to take a dig at the national selectors. India’s number four batsman with a promising future was left out when the World Cup squad was announced on April 15th.

Meanwhile, BCCI selectors chose Vijay Shankar ahead of Rayudu as he brings the three dimensions of the game to the table which resulted as a jibe at the selectors from Rayudu which said that he has ordered 3D glasses to watch the world cup.

BCCI gives their reply as mentioned below, “We have taken note of what Rayudu has tweeted. But let’s accept that emotions are running high at this moment. This is bound to be a disappointment and there needs to be an outlet of expression as long as it is not out of a lie.

“He will need some time to soak in the disappointment and it is understandable. There is no need for sanctions. Also, he is one of our standbys.”
