A tweet by the International Cricket Council’s (ICC) official Twitter handle on Pakistani bowler Hasan Ali has prompted angry reactions online among cricket fans in Pakistan.
The meme takes a dig at Ali’s dismissal during the Test match against South Africa. Captioned, “Your profile picture vs the full picture,” the first image shows the zoomed-in version of the cricketer, while the second focuses on the fallen wicket.

It did not take long for the tweet to go viral, with a flood of reactions. Some were amused, but others found the meme in poor taste. Many also used the opportunity to troll ICC and shared their own memes on the post.
Here, take a look at some of the many reactions to the viral tweet:

Very shameful of @ICC for treating players with memes like this, specially from the Asian countries.
As if all the English players are supremely talented than their counterparts.
