As the T20 WorldCup tournament start date is fast approaching, the final squad of Men in Blue, India was announced on Thursday. After a long time, Ravichandran Ashwin is representing India in the T20 format. The team was announced by BCCI Honorary Secretary Jay Shah through a video message.

Jay Shah's video announcement gave rise to a flood of trolls and memes on social media. His inability to give the announcement by looking at the teleprompter made the netizens target the BCCI Honorary Secretary Jay Shah.

Besides the Congress party leaders, people from other professions have also trolled Jay Shah over the speech. Jay Shah is also trolled over the BJP's slogan no dynasty politics will be entered by the BJP or the leaders.

Taking a dig at BJP over Jay Shah holding the honorary Secretary of Board of Control for Cricket in India(BCCI), Public Interest lawyer in the Supreme Court, Prashant Bhushan joined the netizens in trolling Jay Shah.

'What a sweet & innocent boy! He is the boss of BCCI. He is named Jay Shah. Of course there is no dynasty in BJP nor political interference in BCCI,' Prashant Bhushan's tweet reads.

Supreme Court Lawyer and spokesperson for the Congress Party Brijesh Kalappa, had questioned the appointment of Jay Shah and asked why a person who is not a cricketer is holding the BCCI Secretary post. He cannot even pass a reading test, Kalappa said in his tweet.'Neither is Jay Shah a cricketer, nor will he be able to pass a reading test. For what good has he been appointed BCCI Secretary?!' the tweet reads.

Indian singer and songwriter Vishal Dadlani also gave his reaction to the viral video of Jay Shah. He said, as Jay Shah is the BCCI Secretary, his English skills are not important but his cricketing record is. Saying that the heads of the Sports related bodies should be judged on the grounds of their skills, Dadlani in his tweet said, this will make us realize why we are lagging compared to the international standards.

'Not right to judge a man by his ability to speak English. He's the Head of the BCCI. Judge him by his cricketing record. In fact, judge all sporting-association heads by their skill at their sports. Then realise why we don't do nearly as well internationally as we should, ' Dadlani said in a tweet.
