Something like this is very hard to believe, but MSK Prasad, the chief selector, who ignored Ambati Rayudu's claims for a World Cup berth, admitted today that he enjoyed Rayudu's sarcastic tweet about going to watch the World Cup with 3D glasses.

Rayudu chose to risk a lot by putting out that tweet ("Just Ordered a new set of 3d glasses to watch the world cup") not long after Prasad justified all-rounder Vijay Shankar's selection by calling the Tamil Nadu rookie a three-dimensional player. Vijay played three games at the World Cup with scores of 15* (vs Pakistan), 29 (vs Afghanistan) and 14 (vs West Indies). A toe injury ensured he was no part of India's World Cup plans.

Rayudu, meanwhile, retired from international cricket during the tournament. "Frankly speaking, that was a lovely tweet, I really enjoyed it. It was a very timely one. I don't know how it struck him but I really enjoyed it," Prasad told the media at the selection announcement for the West Indies tour.
