Watch: ICC hilariously trolls Shoaib Akhtar for his tweet on Steve Smith


Karachi: The International Cricket Council (ICC) official Twitter account trolled former Pakistani pacer, Shoaib Akhtar, after he claimed to dismiss Australian batsman Steve Smith in just four balls.

The Rawalpindi Express on Monday responded to ESPNcricinfo’s post on Twitter in which he was contested with former Australian captain Steve Smith. He showed full confidence in his abilities and wrote “Even today, 3 hurting bouncers and I can dismiss Steve Smith on the 4th ball, Lol.”

However, ICC came up with a hilarious response as they tweeted three pictures. The first image is of Michael Jordan looking down as if he is reading something, followed by the second image which is a screenshot of Akhtar’s tweet. The third image goes back to Jordan, who is seen laughing away.

It is pertinent to mention here that Akhtar had represented Pakistan in Tests, ODIs, and T20Is from 1997 to 2011. He was recognized as one of the fastest pacers in cricket history. The pacer had bowled the fastest delivery at 161.3 km/h (100.23 mph).
