The son of former India cricketer Roger Binny, all-rounder Stuart Binny has had it mostly rough ever since he came into the limelight after being selected to play with the IPL team, Rajasthan Royals.
Binny has had a career of mostly downs and his inconsistent performances with the Indian cricket team have come in for a fair bit of crticism. His all-round ‘capabilities’ have been the sole reason for his inclusion in the playing eleven but he hasn’t yet been able to prove much of his worth.
In a recent T20 match between India and the West Indies in the USA, Binny conceded 32 runs in an over and social media went berserk.
And, sadly, Indian fans have never shied from blaming players’ partners for their poor performance on the field. Just ask Anushka Sharma, Bollywood actress and Virat Kohli’s on-off girlfriend, who has often had to bear the brunt of Twitterati’s often tasteless comments just because he didn’t play well. Kohli, by the way, ranks 1st in T20 & 2nd in ODI International Cricket Council rankings.
No surprises then that Mayanti Langer Binny, TV sports host, journalist and Stuart Binny’s better half, has also been pulled into trashy jokes on several occasions for her husband’s off days on the field.
