The International Cricket Council (ICC) is known for joking around with the cricketers by putting up meme-like content. The recent example of it is when ICC took on its official Twitter handle to make a snide remark on the super over. The super over have been proven the game-changer in the recent matches, be it the 2019 ICC World Cup match between England and New Zealand or the recent ones between India and New Zealand during the T20I series.
Recently, Kiwi bowler Jimmy Neesham posted a picture of himself with India batsman KL Rahul during the third ODI at the Bay Oval. In the picture, both Neesham and Rahul can be seen doing a fist pump, but the pacer captioned the post by writing, “Paper, scissors, rock.”
ICC took advantage of the picture and retweeted the post of Neesham and wrote, “Perhaps we do this instead of super overs.”
In the recent T20I series between India and New Zealand, the third and the fourth match went into the super over, and India managed to win both the times.
Surely, the Kiwis have a hard-luck winning the match after it goes into the super over, but given the recent scenario of the clean sweep in the three-match ODI series against India it is a clear proof that the Black Caps are surely a tough challenge for the opposite team.
