Cricket activities have stopped all over the world due to Corona virus epidemic. The International Cricket Council (ICC) is also trying to engage the fans in new ways. The ICC posted a similar photo on Tuesday.
The ICC shared a picture of Australia’s four World Cup winning captains with trophies. It featured images of Allan Border, Steve Waugh, Ricky Ponting and Michael Clarke. ICC’s caption on this photo was iconic. That is the example. Of course this is an iconic photo. But this ICC photo has one omission.
What happened missed by ICC
Actually, the ICC has written four in front of the trophy in this picture. And Australia has won five trophies. Yes, the World Cup winning captain has been four since Ricky Ponting has won the World Cup twice. Five trophies are also placed in the picture.
Fans trolled the ICC and wrote that maybe even the ICC does not know that Australia has won the World Cup four or five times.
