Twitter reacts to Pakistan-Australia bizarre biscuit trophy
Pakistan and Australia will square off in a T20 series sponsored by TUC savoury biscuits, and the sponsors have left their imprint on the prize in the form of a giant bronze cracker sitting on top of some stumps.
In what has to go down as one of the weirdest pieces of silverware ever seen in professional sport, the teams will essentially be playing for a giant biscuit mounted on top of metallic stumps.
In the age of internet and strong social media, it did not take much time for the image of the trophy to go viral, and now the twitter has erupted with never-ending trolls and memes.
Let’s see what the netizens had to say on this.

I'm predicting Pakistan will win the trophy, because that biscuit should motivate them to play out of their skins. Australians may deliberately under perform to avoid taking that trophy back to Australia.

All the politics aside, official international cricket governing body shouldn’t stoop to a troll account. #Delete
