On Friday, the International Cricket Council (ICC) decided to up their meme game as Pakistan was locking horns with Bangladesh at Lord’s with an impossible task on their hands – win the toss and beat the Tigers with a humongous margin to secure a berth in the World Cup Semi-finals.

However, Pakistan defeated the team but the latter was beyond the realm of possibility. Batting first, the Men in Green put up a decent score of 315/9 on the board. It was during the innings break that the ICC decided to remind the Pakistani fans that there was still an outside chance for Sarfaraz and his men to jump New Zealand on the points table with better Net Run Rate and beat them in the race of playoffs.

As Bangladesh came out to chase Pakistan’s target of 316, something really bizarre came out of Mohammad Hafeez’s hand. During the third over of Bangladesh’s innings, he bowled a very loopy full-toss to Tigers’ opener Soumya Sarkar. Talking about the same from the commentary box, Wasim Akram said, “No, it wasn’t a mystery ball at all. He just missed. I’ve never seen this before in my entire cricketing career. I have been involved in cricket for last 31-32 years.”

While the umpire almost ran for cover, Sarkar came dancing down the pitch and pulled it for a four. As Hafeez launched the ball into the galaxy, the meme creators at ICC got creative and quickly created a video-montage at the expense of the Pakistani cricketer.

ICC captioned the hilarious video saying, “When your bowling coach tells you to “give it some flight”.

Needless to say, Pakistani fans were once again unimpressed by ICC’s antics.

Pakistan ended their World Cup 2019 campaign with a win by 94 runs against Mashrafe Mortaza.
