Twitter was on fire after International Cricket Council (ICC) trolled Pakistan cricketer Hasan Ali on its official social media handles on Thursday.
ICC shared a collage of Hasan Ali’s dismissal on Day 3 of the Pakistan vs South Africa first Test match at Karachi. The one on the left was a zoomed version where the rattled stumps behind Ali were not visible. The one the right was the actual photo which showed the uprooted middle stump.
The collage was captioned: “Your profile picture vs the full picture.”

Here is how Twitter reacted to ICC’s social media post on Hasan Ali
Pakistan grabbed three late wickets through its spinners and left South Africa in trouble at 187-4 in its second innings at stumps on day three.
Aiden Markram and Rassie van der Dussen led South Africa’s resistance in overturning a 158-run first-innings deficit. Their half-centuries in a gritty 127-run stand nosed the Proteas ahead after tea, but both batsmen were dismissed within the day’s last 33 balls, along with Faf du Plessis for 10.
South Africa was effectively 29-4 with two days to play.
Leg-spinner Yasir Shah bagged 3-53 and Nauman Ali 1-27.
Aiden Markram made 74 and Van der Dussen 64, digging in together for nearly 3 1/2 hours. At stumps, captain Quinton de Kock was yet to score and nightwatchman Keshav Maharaj was 2 not out.
Earlier, Pakistan was bowled out for 378 in the morning, Shah leading the tailenders with an unbeaten 38 valuable runs.
