ICC posts amusing picture of Faf du Plessis; removes it later
International Cricket Council made the biggest blunder on social media when it uploaded an inappropriate picture featuring former South Africa captain Faf du Plessis in an unusual manner. Soon after realising the mistake, the ICC Twitter admin immediately deleted the picture.
However, the fans took a screenshot of the picture posted by the ICC and trended it on social media. It all started after Cricket South Africa announced their 21-man Test squad for their upcoming tour of Pakistan. South Africa will fly to Pakistan to play 2 Tests, 3 T20Is.
The first Test of the two-match Test series is scheduled to be played on January 26. South African selectors have called 2 newcomers in their side. Daryn Dupavillon and Ottneil Baarman earned their call-ups to the side. They will be looking forward to a new challenge in overseas conditions.
Meanwhile, the global cricket body tagged these two names by adding that they will be making a debut. After that, the ICC attached a picture of South African players featuring Faf du Plessis. But little did the admin know that Faf du Plessis would be caught in an inappropriate position as he was caught touching his private part when the cameraman took the picture.
The fans came up with so many comments on the post and after which the ICC Twitter realised the mistake and deleted it from the account.
