Why is twitter trolling the Pakistan-Australia ‘biscuit’ trophy

The social media and especially Twitter is an evil place. Here the trollers are always eager to pounce on anything. All they need is a little sniff to bring out their creativity and the latest example of this trend is the trophy for the Pakistan versus Australia T20I series. ICC pointed out at the design of the biscuit on the trophy and the trolling snowballed on Twitter.

ICC takes a dig at the TUC trophy unveiled by Pakistan

It all started when Pakistan Cricket Board's official Twitter handle posted a picture of the TUC trophy. This trophy will be handed over to the winner of the 3 T20I match series played between Australia and Pakistan.

In the picture, Aaron Finch the captain of Australia's T20 team and the Pakistani captain Sarfaraz Ahmed are seen holding the trophy.

The series is sponsored by TUC, a brand that deals with biscuits. Hence the organisers designed a biscuit on the trophy. However, this design didn't go well with ICC's twitter handle and the International Cricket Council trolled PCB for the bizarre design of the trophy.

It took ICC only two tweets to start the trolling trend on Twitter.
