BCCI Secretary Jay Shah has once again found himself at the receiving end as netizens ridiculed him for his Guinness World Record claim in connection with an IPL match. Many people alleged the photo of Shah used in the official tweet was fake and photoshopped.

This was after the BCCI took to Twitter to write, “A proud moment for everyone as India creates the Guinness World Record. This one is for all our fans for their unmatched passion and unwavering support. Congratulations to @GCAMotera and @IPL.”

Look at the picture quality used for this post.”

User Anirman Joshi wrote, “Guiness book world record for destroying a talented player’s career and making him warm the benches for years.” User Thalas fan wrote, “But why it’s looking fake.”
