The post went viral on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. There were mixed reactions from the Twitteratis.
While some had no issues with the humor, the others were not pleased with ICC’s decision to troll a cricketer.
Hasan, who scored 21 in Pakistan’s 1st innings of the opening Test against South Africa, was dismissed by Kagiso Rabada to become his 200th Test scalp.
The South African pacer needed only 44 Tests to reach the milestone and is only the eighth bowler from the country to get to 200 scalps.
At the age of 25, Rabada is also the fourth youngest to get to the milestone, behind Waqar Younis, Kapil Dev, and Harbhajan Singh. In terms of balls bowled, he is the third fastest with 8154, after Waqar Younis and Dale Steyn.
Pakistan won the first test by 7 wkts, and moved to the fifth position in the ICC World Championship.
The second Test of the series kicks off on February 4. The two teams are also scheduled to play a 3-match T20I series.
