Popular sports presenter Mayanti Langer Binny's recent social media post has got cricket fans talking. She uploaded a picture on her Instagram Story from India's 2014 tour of England, where her husband Stuart Binny played a fine knock on Test debut.
In the photograph shared by Mayanti Langer on Sunday, Stuart can be seen taking a run with a frustrated James Anderson in the background. However, Mayanti decided against captioning the image, which has made her Instagram Story a talking point.
Many fans felt Mayanti Langer was offering a suggestion to Team India to include a pace bowling all-rounder like Stuart Binny in the playing XI for the next Test against England. A bowling all-rounder can give the batting lineup more depth and help solve some of the team's problems.
Meanwhile, few fans perceived Mayanti Langer's post as a subtle dig at the Indian team after their innings defeat at Headingley. Some of them have even pointed out that the photo is probably from Binny's Test debut, where he aggregated 78 runs, a total that Team India scored in their first innings at Headingley.
However, since Mayanti Langer has not given any description it would be wrong to assume it as a troll or a dig at the Indian team. Perhaps she may have posted this picture as just a throwback to her husband's best Test knock.
