The News Minute | January 7, 2015 | 12:28 pm IST  The BCCI on Tuesday announced the Indian squad for the 2015 World Cup. While many seem to have been disappointed that Yuvraj Singh had been left out of the team, the selection of all rounder Stuart Binny did surprise some. WHY IS STUART BINNY IN OUR WORLD CUP SQUAD WHAT NONSENSE IS THIS? — Kabir Taneja (@KabirTaneja) January 6, 2015 Indian Team Selected for World Cup.. Selector Papa Roger Binny selects Son Stuart Binny for the tour.. Strange selection — Nishant Chaturvedi (@nishantchat) January 6, 2015 Yuvi didn't get a place and Stuart Binny included in the WC team. Pure politics in BCCI. — Deepak Pal (@Deepakpal) January 7, 2015 Is there no conflict of interest when Roger Binny is a national selector and his son Stuart Binny is picked in the World Cup Final 15? — $ir $ri $ri Magal (@jhunjhunwala) January 6, 2015 Stuart Binny has been selected so that Rohit Sharma & Ishant Sharma look deserving for the World Cup. 😂😂😂 — Keh Ke Peheno (@coolfunnytshirt) January 6, 2015 The disappointment with Binny's selection was quite visible on social media. That he is the son of  national selector and former Indian Test cricketer Roger Binny and that it could have worked in his favour at the time of selection, irked some. However, the criticisms and jokes soon escalated to a new level. This time, Mayanti Langer, Stuart Binny's wife became the centre of trolling. Langer is an Indian television sports journalist and the couple had got married in 2012.  The tweets, directed towards Binny, doing rounds on Twitter reek of an apparent surprise at him getting a 'hot' wife. Several comparisons have also been made between Binny and Abhishek Bachchan in connection to their successful fathers and wives.  Similarities b/w Stuart Binny & Abhishek Bachchan : 1.Both have hot wife's. 2.Both fathers are successful & powerful. #WorldCup15 #AUSvsIND — Ritik Thakur (@imRitikThakur) January 7, 2015 Stuart Binny kaun hai?
