    New Delhi (Sputnik): Indians who are showering messages on the Iceland Cricket Board were asked by the latter, to stop sending unwanted visa requests inspired by Iceland’s reported decision to give disgruntled Indian cricketer Ambati Rayudu a chance to play for their nation.

    Some netizens from India have started asking the Iceland Cricket Board for permanent residency since the cricket board offered it to shunted Indian cricketer Rayudu.

    Rayudu on Wednesday announced retirement from all forms of international cricket on behalf of India.

    A few netizens from the cricket crazy nation, have picked up on the lighter side of an offer made to Indian cricketer Rayudu, and have started appealing to the Iceland Cricket Board to give them an opportunity as well.

    Some users have decided to present the Iceland Cricket Board with their own credentials, explaining how they can strengthen the sport of cricket in Iceland.

    While some others suggested that Iceland cricket should regularly import the enormous cricketing talent that India has to offer.

    One user seemed irritated with the Indian commentators of the ongoing Cricket World Cup and urged Iceland cricket to take them along with Rayudu.

    Seeming visibly flummoxed with the copious amounts of residency requests pouring in, the Iceland Cricket Board had to later clarify their inability to issue sports visas to the myriads of aspiring cricketers from India.

    Meanwhile, Indians have been abuzz on social media ever since Rayudu announced his retirement from all forms of international cricket for India, after reportedly being angry at the World Cup snub. Some social media users seem livid with the Indian Cricket Board (BCCI) for ‘wasting a talent’ like Rayudu.
