The International Cricket Council (ICC) governs the sport of cricket across the globe. They are actively working on improving the game and trying to expand their wings in all parts of the world. Recently, they even announced several big changes to the formats in which the World Cup qualifiers would take place for the next leg of the premier tournament.
Well, it remains to be seen how their plans fare up in the longer run. For now, the ICC seems to have found out other ways to engage their fans. The social media handle of the ICC is quite active on Twitter. Time and again, they have been posting updates on the several big events of the cricketing world. Also, in the recent times, there have been occasions, when the social media handle of the cricketing body has turned cheeky.
There have been tweets shared by the board that have been outright funny, and at times, quite filled with dark humour too. Recently, they came up with another tweet that had the social media rolling on the floor laughing. One of the popular meme templates on social media is about ‘You vs the guy she told you not to worry about’. This template usually has a poor, helpless entity on one side of the frame, and the other side has a strong influential entity.
Using the same template, the ICC shared an update in which they had a picture of Aaron Finch and Sarfraz Ahmed holding the trophy of their upcoming T20I assignment. This is supposedly the ‘you’ part of the troll. The other part, the stronger one, has Virat Kohli and Sarfraz Ahmed holding the ICC major event trophy in their hands.
It is now left to the decision of the viewers to note who the ICC is trying to troll here. The war had already begun and the responses to the tweet witnesses some war of words between the fans too.
Here is the tweet that ICC shared:
“You vs the trophy she told you not to worry about,” the ICC captioned the picture they shared in the tweet.
