Rajeev Shukla posts cryptic tweet after India’s series win in Australia
The Board of Control for Cricket in India Vice President Rajiv Shukla posted a controversial tweet on his social media handle after Team India scripted a remarkable 2-1 series win in Australia. India not only conquered the Gabba but also retained the Border Gavaskar Trophy.
This is also India’s second consecutive Test series victory in Australian soil. During India’s previous visit to Australia, Virat Kohli-led team pulled off the unthinkable as they won the series by 2-1. This time, it was the same scoreline and the series victory came under Ajinkya Rahane’s leadership.
After India’s famous series victory, fans from all quarters congratulated Rahane & Co for their attitude, character especially after losing the first Test in Adelaide Oval. There was no turning back since then as they won the Melbourne Test.
They played out a draw in SCG Test and they won the final Test in Brisbane to achieve the mission impossible. All the teammates are in India now and will kick-off new challenge when they take on England for the four-match Test series.
After that, both teams will play the 5-match T20I series followed by the three-match ODI series.
Rajeev Shukla posts a cryptic tweet:
While the Indian fans posted countless tweets to congratulate Team India on their success, BCCI Vice President triggered a controversy by posting an unexpected tweet. His latest tweet on India’s victory went viral on social media and fans lashed out at him.
He spoke about the religion of players in his tweet. He had shared a photo and cited Mohammed Siraj and Rishabh Pant for their religions after the winning pose in Australia.
He said : “Ek Hindu, dusra Muslim. fir bhi dono is baat se khush hai ki bharat jeet gya. Agar yhi baat desh ki janta ko samajh aa jae to kattar muslim or kattar hindu ke naam par chal rahi kuch partiyo ki Rajneeti hi samapat ho jae.”

“Rishabh-Hindu, Siraj-Muslim, Shubman Gill -Sikh, Washington Sundar-Christian,” he mentioned. However, he was wrong about describing Washington Sundar’s religion as Christian. But, Washington Sundar is a Hindu.
Washington sundar is a hindu, can't believe you are close to BCCI still posting whatsapp forwards which are false
