Match Tied (Royal Challengers Bangalore win one-over eliminator)
Former Pakistan speedster Shoaib Akhtar has taken on the International Cricket Council (ICC) in a Twitter battle after the apex body trolled him for his comments on Australia’s star batsman Steve Smith. Shoaib had claimed that he could get Smith easily on the fourth ball of his spell after three hurting bouncers.
In return, the ICC had poked fun at Shoaib’s bold claim by making a meme out of his remarks. Shoaib has thus blamed the ICC for throwing "neutrality out of the window" and stated that this showed the partisan nature of the cricket organization.
The 44-year-old, who is regarded as the fiercest pacers of his generation, also posted a video of himself bowling with sheer pace and troubling batsmen and asked the ICC to find a new emoji or meme to troll him.
