Ashes 2019: Fans slam ICC after their cheeky tweet on Ben Stokes and Sachin Tendulkar

The International Cricket Council (ICC) created a massive outburst on social media after it hailed Ben Stokes as ‘the greatest cricketer of all time’. The apex body retweeted the old post of ICC Cricket World Cup in which it had uploaded a picture of ‘Master Blaster’ Sachin Tendulkar along with England all-rounder Ben Stokes.

After Stokes played a match-winning knock of 135 in the third Test against Australia to level the Ashes series 1-1, the ICC retweeted the Cricket World Cup post with a new caption, “told you so”.

Following ICC’s tweet, netizens slammed the apex cricketing body for comparing Stokes with Tendulkar. Moreover, the Twitterati also said that Stokes could never match the level of batting legend Sachin.

However, the Twitter world has mentioned that Stokes deserves all the credits for playing a sensational knock which helped England to chase down 359 for victory with one wicket to spare.
