The selectors seem to have put their faith in Binny and his bowling abilities where conditions are favourable for pace and swing in Australia and New Zealand. However, his father Roger Binny, World Cup winner in 1983, part of the BCCI selection panel, many have questioned his spot in the side.

While some expressed delight over Stuart's selection, he also became the butt of jokes - especially on twitter.

Immediately after the inclusion of Stuart in the 15-man squad, fans from all over India expressed their anger on the social networking platforms and Stuart Binny was still trending on twitter.

Stuart, who made his ODI debut last January in New Zealand, including his stunning figures of 6 for 4 in 4.4 overs against Bangladesh in June are the best figures by an Indian in ODI cricket.
