Whether they play each other or not, Indian and Pakistani cricket fans are always looking to troll each other whenever an opportunity presents itself.
Whenever one neighbour’s cricket team achieves something of note, fans of the other leave no stone unturned in mocking the it.
This certainly seemed to be the case today when the International Cricket Council (ICC) paid tribute to Babar Azam by including him in their “Justice League” tweet, photoshopping the Pakistani skipper’s face on top of superhero The Flash’s body.
Meanwhile, Indian batting great Virat Kohli’s face was photoshopped on Aquaman’s body, while England’s Ben Stokes featured as Batman.
However, Babar Azam’s inclusion in the ‘league’ did not sit well with many Indian fans, who needlessly mocked and scorned the Pakistani batsman.
An Indian cricket fan felt that Babar shouldn’t be included in the team. When someone praised Babar Azam’s classy cover drives, an Indian Twitter user tried to make fun of the Pakistani skipper. Not a good joke.
Twitter user Mahesh Mohanty questioned the Pakistani captain’s inclusion in the tweet, adding that Babar Azam has only played and performed against lower ranked teams.
Pakistani cricket fans, however, were not going to be left behind when time came for some jawaabi karwayi (retaliatory action).
