Pakistan won the Test series against Australia comfortably at UAE a few days ago. Now, both nations will play the three-match T20 international series. Ahead of the first game, which will be played today in UAE, Australian captain Aaron Finch and Sarfraz Ahmed unveiled the TUC Cup 2018. What caught our eye the shape of the trophy. The TUC Cup resembled a biscuit and the shape of the cup immediately went on to be the point of discussion for the netizens. Even the ICC did not leave an opportunity to take a potshot at its shape.
The official account of the International Cricket Club trolled the PCB for the shape of the trophy and posted a couple of tweets. The ICC compared the biscuit trophy with the Champions trophy and wrote, “You vs the trophy she told you not to worry about.”
