Twitter has erupted over the non-inclusion of in-form batsman Surya Kumar Yadav in India’s upcoming tour of Bangladesh, with many users saying the BCCI was “casteist”.
The Board had recently announced the teams for the ODI and four-day Test matches with the Bangladesh A team. Rajat Patidar, Shahbaz Ahmed and Kuldeep Sen were the new names included in the team.
Suryakumar Yadav’s absence from both lists was very conspicuous and this triggered a barrage of criticism at the BCCI and selectors.

Users also took on BCCI for excluding Prithvi Shaw and Sanju Samson, both of who have shown god calibre in recent times, showing their eligibility for a call up to the Indian team. Some even made memes to drive home the point.
Prithvi Shaw does not get selected even in India A. Wow https://t.co/w3KaviIAaQ
