ICC savagely trolls Hasan Ali on Twitter
International Cricket Council stole the spotlight on Twitter after posting a hilarious tweet involving Pakistani cricketer Hasan Ali. The first Test match between Pakistan and South Africa is being held at National Stadium, Karachi.
So far, three days of the Test have been done and dusted. During Pakistan’s first innings, Hasan Ali was dismissed by South Africa pacer Kagiso Rabada. The right-handed batsman made a complete mess of Hasan’s stumps.
Hasan Ali tried to play a big shot off Rabada’s bowling but as it turned out, he ended up missing the ball completely. He was beaten all ends up as the ball went on to crash into the stumps. He departed after making 21 runs including 2 fours.
ICC posts a hilarious tweet:
After Hasan Ali’s departure, ICC took this as a perfect opportunity to troll the Pakistani cricketer on Twitter. The apex body posted a hilarious tweet on their social media handle involving Hasan Ali’s way of dismissal.
The ICC posted two pics in comparison, one is a cropped picture showing Hasan Ali posing a pull shot and the other picture showing him playing the shot while the ball goes on to hit the stumps.

ICC’s tweet went viral on social media platforms with several netizens praising the global cricket body for coming up with this sort of tweet. Rabada also achieved his landmark by taking his 200th Test wicket.
Pakistan were bowled out for 378 in the first innings with a healthy lead of 158. In reply, South Africa responded quite well after losing Dean Elgar for 29. Markram and Van Der Dussen added a 127-run stand for the second wicket before van der Dussen departed for 64 (5 fours).
Aiden Markram was the pick of the batsmen for South Africa as he scored 74 including 10 fours. At the end of Day 3, South Africa scored 187/4 with a lead of 29 runs. With 2 more days to go, there is plenty of drama left at the venue.
