The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) lost their blue tick on their social media handle ‘X’ (Twitter) following PM Narendra Modi’s request to change the display picture in support of the ‘Har Ghar Tiranga campaign’.
Ahead of the 77th Independence Day, which will be celebrated across the nation on August 15, PM Narendra Modi requested citizens to change their profile pictures, on their respective social media, to the Indian flag. In the process, the apex cricket board adhered to the move by the PM and changed their display picture as a part of the campaign.
In the spirit of the #HarGharTiranga movement, let us change the DP of our social media accounts and extend support to this unique effort which will deepen the bond between our beloved country and us.— Narendra Modi (@narendramodi) August 13, 2023
However, in doing so, the BCCI lost its blue tick on their ‘X’ handle which has sent social media into a frenzy. As per the revised guidelines of the platform, the ‘X’ management will now review BCCI’s profile and assuming it meets all the guidelines, the blue tick will be restored.
It is worth mentioning that post-Independence Day, if and when the BCCI reverts back to their original logo, the same process may follow and the board may lose its blue tick again.
Speaking about the national team, team India outrightly dominated the West Indies in the fourth T20I, winning by nine wickets. In the process, the Men in Blue got on level terms in the ongoing five-match series 2-2.
Both sides will be gunning to obtain a result in their favour in the fifth and final T20I which is slated to be played at the Central Broward Regional Park Stadium Turf Ground in Lauderhill on Sunday, August 13.
Following the conclusion of the multi-format series against the Windies, the Rohit Sharma-led side will turn their attention towards the eagerly-anticipated Asia Cup 2023. The Men in Blue will begin their campaign against arch-rivals Pakistan on Saturday, September 2 at the Pallekele International Cricket Stadium in Sri Lanka. The BCCI is likely to announce the squad for the ACC event in the coming days as the same setup is highly likely to make the cut in the crucial ODI World Cup which will begin on October 5 in India.
