The ICC’s social media handle stirred quite a controversy with their latest interactive post on Twitter. In the post, they asked about the best pullers of the ball out of Ricky Ponting, Virat Kohli, Herschelle Gibbs, and Vivian Richards.


Former England international Kevin Pietersen rated Andrew Hudson as the best puller of the ball. On the other hand, Harbhajan Singh named his Mumbai Indian skipper Rohit Sharma ahead of Virat Kohli, tagging him as the best puller of the ball along with Ricky Ponting.

Rohit Sharma seemed flared up for not been included in the options. He quickly retweeted the post saying, “Someone’s missing here ?? Not easy to work from home, I guess.”



This led to former England Captain Michael Vaughan trolling the post by naming his best puller of the ball. Vaughan picked England spinner and tail-ending batsman, Jack Leach, as the best puller of the ball.

The bespectacled left-hander showed his resilience by helping Ben Stokes during his mammoth effort of 135* during the Headingley Test of the Ashes series in England last year.

Leach’s name did several rounds on social media after his feat with the bat, where he survived 11 balls by scoring just one run, in the final wicket-stand of 76, which saw the host sail towards victory.
