A trophy has its own charm in any cricketing tournament or bilateral series. However, the same can't be said for the Tuc T20I Cup trophy for the ongoing series between Australia and Pakistan.
A trophy has its own charm in any cricketing tournament or bilateral series. However, the same can’t be said for the Tuc T20I Cup trophy for the ongoing series between Australia and Pakistan. The trophy was unveiled on October 23 by Pakistan Cricket Board and has a biscuit on top. Yes, you read it right! The trophy features a large biscuit on top of three stumps with a ball and has garnered some attention on social media.
The tweet by PCB has gone viral on Twitter with people brutally trolling the Pak Board. The International Cricket Council (ICC) too joined the fun and shared a meme. “You vs the trophy she told you not to worry about,” it captioned the collage which it had the Tuc trophy and the 2007 ICC Champions Trophy.
Here are some of the top tweets –

In the first T20I of the series, opener Babar Azam’s unbeaten 68 and Imad Wasim’s three wickets helped Pakistan crush Australia by 66 runs in Abu Dhabi on Wednesday. The win gave Pakistan a 1-0 lead in the three-match series and also their biggest T20 victory over Australia.
The second and third T20 internationals will be played in Dubai on Friday and Sunday.
Meanwhile, in a separate development, PCB have decided to issue NOCs to some of its players to take part in the T-10 League being held in November-December in Sharjah. In a statement, Pakistan board said that the decision was taken after due diligence.
“Furthermore the PCB’s own Anti-Corruption Unit also carried out a thorough review,” the statement read.
