In fact Vihari himself posted this ad on his X account. He shared the ad satirizing it by saying keep trying things like this. In that, ACA has been criticized as the target of Vihari.

"We felt we should respond to this controversy. It came to our attention that Mr. Vihari had personally insulted a player in front of everyone during the Ranji match against Bengal. The aggrieved player filed a formal complaint. After that Ranji Trophy match in January 2024, an email was received from the Chairman of the Senior Selection Committee.

A new captain has been proposed in the wake of doubts over Vihari's availability for the entire season due to his chances of playing for the Indian team. Vihari also defended this decision. As a result, the senior selection committee appointed Rikki Bhui as the new captain," ACA clarified.

Moreover, accusations were also made against Vihari. In that statement, ACA revealed that complaints have been received from teammates, support staff and ACA administrators that Vihari is a bad behavior. It is also alleged that Vihari often asks for a no-objection certificate to play for other state teams and then changes his mind immediately. Let's see how Vihari reacts to these accusations and criticisms.🏏🏌️
