The social media handlers of the International Cricket Council (ICC) are known to bring their ‘A’ game to the table and stun the fans with their sense of humor. Despite representing a world level body, the social media admins have mixed up well with the fans by cracking some funny jokes and taking some jibes on fellow cricketers.
Recently, a picture featuring a confrontation between New Zealand’s Jimmy Neesham and India’s KL Rahul has gone viral on the internet. This photograph is from the 3rd ODI of the recently concluded ODI series between India and New Zealand where the hosts blanked the visitors 3-0.
Neesham, who is well among fans for his hilarious tweets, disclosed that he was not arguing with his Kings XI Punjab captain, KL Rahul but instead the two cricketers were playing Rock, Paper, Scissors in the middle to relieve some pressure.
ICC came up with an interesting reply to Neesham saying that the board will soon consider this is a viable option to solve the Super Overs puzzle. Recently, the fans have called out ICC for laying down improper rules for a tied game. The previous rule allowed the team with more boundaries to win a match after the Super Over would end in a tie.
Because of this rule, New Zealand fell millimeters short of the Cricket World Cup despite playing their best cricket. To solve this problem, ICC came up with a new solution where the teams would keep on battling in Super Overs until there would be a clear winner. So, this process would prove be a bit elongated and in case, there are 3-4 Super Overs, the fans will soon get bored of this thing.
So, ICC thought that this would be a better and more interesting way to solve the Super Over dilemma. Here is ICC’s tweet –
Perhaps we do this instead of super overs? 🤷♂️ https://t.co/yoMn9ZKuR2
