Fans Divided Over ICC’s ‘Googly’ Special Video Which Misses Out on Prominent Pakistan Spinners
ICC’s (International Cricket Council) social media team is making sure to keep fans entertained at a time when there is not much international cricket happening. ICC recently posted a video on Twitter which was a compilation of googlies bowled by spinners. The video featured footage from various ICC events. However, Pakistan fans were left irked as the video featured none of bowler from their men’s team. The only Pakistan bowler to feature in the video was women’s cricketer Marina Iqbal.

ICC featured Marina’s googly to Elyse Villani during the ICC Women’s Cricket World Cup 2017. But Pakistan fans weren’t satisfied and complained why no prominent bowler from men’s team found a place in the video.
ICC had captioned the video as “What happens when batters don’t pick the googly? Absolute mayhem” and it showcases googlies bowled by leg-break bowlers. Some of the fans were quick to put forth their grievances. Upcoming Cricket Matches in June 2021.

Anil Kumble. The best. Forever.
Missing Pakistan’s Mushtaq Ahmed in this too. One of most lethal googlys in game.
