Pakistan and South Africa are involved in a thrilling Test match against each other at National Stadium in Karachi as the South Africa cricket team has toured Pakistan after 13 years for a two-month Test series and three T20 Internationals. Apart from viewing the exciting match between the two nations, the cricket lovers are getting entertained by the official Twitter handle of the International Cricket Council (ICC).
ICC is leaving no stone to entertain their followers and fans on social media as they hilariously trolled the Pakistan cricketer Hasan Ali for losing his wicket cheaply to Kagiso Rabada in the hosts’ first batting innings. In the 109th over, Ali became a victim of South Africa’s speed merchant Rabada as the latter achieved the remarkable feat of scalping 200 wickets in the purest format of the game.
Rabada kept the ball starlight with an angle and Hasan backed away and swung hard with an aim to clear the mid-wicket but the batsman missed it completely and the ball uprooted the middle stump. Posting two pictures of Hasan Ali from the same instance, ICC’s Twitter handle brutally trolled him for getting bowled out by Rabada.
The cricket body captioned the post as, “Your profile picture vs the full picture”

Fawad Alam shines with the willow for Pakistan
Opting to bat first, South Africa were bundled out for a total of 220 as the spinner Yasir Shah took three wickets while Nauman Ali and Shaheen Afridi had two each to their name. The opening batsman Dean Elgar emerged as the highest run-getter for the visiting nation with a knock of 58 runs off 106 deliveries.
Pakistan outplayed the opposition team and scored 378 runs in their first innings. The Men in Green had a torrid start as they had lost their first four wickets at a mere score of 27. However, Fawad Alam and Azhar Ali stitched a crucial partnership and stabilized the team. Alam scored a stunning century (109 runs) while Azhar also added 51 runs to the scoreboard.
For South Africa, Kagiso Rabada and Keshav Maharaj took three wickets each while Lungi Ngidi and Anrich Nortje picked two scalps each.
