Former Indian cricketer Venkatesh Prasad is one of the fiercest critics in the cricketing fraternity who does not hesitate to voice his opinion on anything. In the past, he has publically criticised KL Rahul and other cricketers for their performances and recently took a swipe at the Asian Cricket Council (ACC) for allowing an exclusive reserve day for the IND-PAK match in the Super Fours of the 2023 Asia Cup.


While Prasad's tweet against the ACC's biased rule for a single match set the internet on fire, his latest post on X (formerly known as Twitter) grabbed even more attention. On Saturday, September 9, he posted, 'one corrupt, arrogant guy takes away the hard work of an organisation', but deleted the tweet and reposted it the next day with a bit of modifications.

"It takes one corrupt, arrogant guy to take away the hard work of an organisation that is generally non-corrupt and get a stamp of corruption on the whole leadership, not just on a micro level but at a large level," his deleted post. In the updated tweet, Prasad added one more line: "This is true in every field, be it politics, sports, journalism, corporate."

Fans on social media were confused as to why he deleted the tweet, and when an X user asked the former right-arm pacer, he explained the reason.

"That was a general tweet where I spoke about how one person who is corrupt can undo a lot of good work of his organisation and it can have large-scale implications on a macro level as well in any field. Since I was also speaking about the inefficiency of the BCCI around tickets in other tweets, it led to confusion and looked out of context. Hence deleted," he said.

Prasad had earlier also criticised the Indian Cricket Board for the way tickets for the 2023 ODI World Cup were put on sale and for unreasonable delay in schedule.
