Former Pakistan speedster Shoaib Akhtar has hit out at the International Cricket Council (ICC), saying the apex cricketing body has thrown neutrality out of the window. His response came as the ICC’s official Twitter handle, decided to take a jibe at Akhtar for suggesting that he could dismiss Australia’s Steve Smith inside four balls. “A symbolic tweet, how ICC has thrown neutrality out of the window. Basically this is how the state of affairs are run there,” Akhtar tweeted.
This was not the end of Akhtar’s rant, as he went on to share a video as well in which there was some old footage of the pacer troubling the batsmen through bouncers. “Dear @icc, find a new meme or Emoji. Sorry I couldn’t find any, only found some real videos,” Akhtar tweeted. Earlier, a cricket website had put up some interesting match-ups on their official Twitter handle, and one such match-up was of Steve Smith versus Akhtar.
