Australian and Pakistani cricket teams compete for a glorified biscuit, Pakistanis angry after ICC tweet

Well, it is hard to imagine how no one from the PCB could gauge the potential public reaction to the ridiculous and bizarre trophy.

The International Cricket Council set the cat among the pigeons after it posted a tweet mocking the trophy for the T20 series to be played between Pakistan and Australia.

Initially, it was just a quoted tweet but the person behind the Twitter handle of the ICC did not stop there. Considering we are all living in a meme-field world, the ICC too could not stop themselves from taking potshots at the PCB.

Pakistanis are ostensibly enraged with the manner in which the ICC trolled the PCB leading some to speculate whether their social media handle is run by an Indian.

The Pakistani media is also running headlines admonishing the ICC for mocking the trophy.

People on social media meanwhile are having a lot of fun at the expense of the Biscuit Trophy.

Well, it is hard to imagine how no one from the PCB could gauge the potential public reaction to the ridiculous and bizarre trophy. Mockery is only natural if cricket teams are made to play against each other for a glorified biscuit.
