Pakistan Cricket Board's social media handle gets trolled for gaffe


Lahore, June 29 : The Pakistan Cricket Board's (PCB) official Twitter handle was trolled as they got the spelling of 'Pakistan' wrong while announcing the squad's departure for England. After being trolled on Twitter for posting a caption which read "Pakiatan team leave for England. All the best boys!" the official handle made a correction on Sunday morning. Amid COVID-19 threats, the Pakistan cricket contingent, including 20 players and support staff, arrived in England on Sunday for their upcoming assignment in which they are scheduled to play three Tests and as many T20Is in August and September. The Pakistan cricketers and the support staff arrived in Manchester on a chartered flight from Lahore and were then transported to Worcestershire. The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) shared the video of the team's arrival on their official Twitter handle in which both the players and the support staff were seen wearing masks and maintaining social distancing. The team will now undergo England and Wales Cricket Board's testing before completing their 14-day isolation period, during which they will be allowed to train and practice. The side will then move to Derbyshire on July 13. Six of Pakistan's 10 coronavirus-infected cricketers -- Fakhar Zaman, Mohammad Hasnain, Mohammad Hafeez, Mohammad Rizwan, Shadab Khan and Wahab Riaz -- have been held back in Lahore and would be sent to England only after two of their successive tests return negative. The ECB has still not announced the dates for the series which will be played behind-closed-doors. England are currently scheduled to take on West Indies in the three-Test series beginning July 8 at the Ageas Bowl. /IANS
