The side-splitting words by Iceland

Most recently, their cricket is grabbing eyeballs, not with their prowess on the 22 yards, but twith heir antics on the social media platform. They have shared some comical messages on Twitter. Ireland’s maiden Test against Pakistan is currently underway and Iceland Cricket has left no stone unturned in taking a jibe at the Pakistan team. Imam-ul-Haq, who is the nephew of Inzamam-ul-Haq, was selected in the squad.

The selection was criticised by former cricketers as well as the commoners. Inzamam, the national team selector, was bashed for favouring his relative in team selection procedures. Fawad Alam showed tremendous form in the domestic circuit, yet he hasn’t been able to stake his claim back into the Pakistan national team. His omission was also jibed at by Iceland.

They also tweeted about Virat Kohli and Steve Smith who have been stalwarts for India and Australia respectively. Kohli, who is currently, the skipper of the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) has arguably been amongst the most prolific run-scorers in limited overs cricket and Iceland want them for marketing purposes.
