Twitterati troll Stuart Binny over his Test selection for West Indies tour

You ought to be a master in one discipline if you have to dominate in Test cricket. As all-rounders, the likes of Imran Khan, Kapil Dev, Ian Botham and Richard Hadlee would have made it to the XI, purely as a bowler. Even coming to the modern game, Jacques Kallis was one of the best batters in the world and his exceptional bowling skills was an addition.

Stuart Binny is an effective all-rounder and has done decently for India in his limited international appearances. However, neither he is a batsman who will win you games on own with the bat nor a bowler who can run through sides. Binny is more of a utility cricketer and selectors showed faith in him when they named him for the Test squad to West Indies.

Binny’s limited abilities make him a subject of troll for the Twitterati, who in the past have also trolled him for being the ‘undeserving husband’ of the gorgeous sports presenter Mayanti Langer and he has also been ridiculed in the past by fans as his father, Roger Binny was in the selection panel. Many went to an extent of terming Stuart’s selection in ICC World Cup 2015 was because of daddy Roger. READ MORE: Mayanti Langer’s epic reply to Twitterati who tried trolling hubby Stuart Binny

After Stuart was named in the Test squad, many of the Twitterati once again poked fun at this selection and criticised this decision.
