Mumbai : A sarcastic tweet by Ambati Rayudu about his World Cup plans after a selection snub on BCCI caught the governing body's attention.

Rayudu was not selected in the world cup squad as all-rounder Vijay Shankar got favoured for his multi-talented skills.

Announcing his plans, the Hyderabadi cricketer said that he plans to buy a 3D glasses to watch the showpiece which begins May 30 in the UK.

The 3D was in reference to chairman of selectors MSK Prasad's words who said Shankar’s “three-dimensional qualities” made him eligible for the selection. The BCCI has taken a note of the sarcastic tweet, but the authority is in no mood to take any action as it was not a direct criticism.

“We have taken note of what Rayudu has tweeted. (But) Let’s accept that emotions are running high at this moment. There is bound to be disappointment and there needs to be an outlet of expression as long as it’s not out of line,” a senior BCCI said on Wednesday.

“He will need some time to soak in the disappointment and it’s understandable. There is no need for sanctions. Also, he is one of our standbys. If any injury happens there is every chance, he would go,” the official said.
