Twitteratis jubilant as ICC declares Imran Khan the best cricketer of all times.

In a poll created on Twitter,  ICC shared statistics of four “extraordinary cricketers” and asked people to rate the best among Imran Khan, Virat Kholi, AB de Villiers, and Meg Lanning.

 

The indomitable Imran Khan emerged as the highest-rated captain, beating Virat Kohli, Meg Lanning, and AB de Villiers in the poll.

 

Not just the public, PM Khan’s cabinet also took to social media to celebrate the poll result:

The poll’s result is perhaps being regarded as India’s loss and Khan’s victory leaving Pakistani Twitterati jubilant.

 

As soon as the poll result was declared, #PakistanshocksIndia started trending top on Twitter along with hashtags #CongratsPMIK, #EmergingPakistanWithPMIK, and led to a flood of memes as well, with Imran Khan and Virat Kohli mentioned.

Indian skipper Virat Kohli stood second on the list with just a small difference of 1.1% votes between him and Khan. However, many came out claiming that Kholi’s votes were cast by a number of fake accounts.
