PCB uses middle finger emoji while wishing Hasan Ali on his birthday

Pakistan speedster Hasan Ali has certainly lived up to his potential ever since donning the national jersey. He represented the team in 13 Tests, 54 ODIs and 36 T20Is. The 27-year-old made his international debut for his country in 2016 in an ODI match.

In the subsequent year, he was featured in the team’s squad for the 2017 ICC Champions Trophy. The pacer grabbed the opportunity in both hands by performing really well in the tournament. Pakistan defeated India in the finals and lifted the Champions Trophy.

Hasan Ali played a vital role in the tournament by taking 13 wickets to his name. He was named the player of the series for his brilliant bowling performance. The Mandi Bahauddin-born cricketer took 57 wickets in Tests, 83 wickets in ODIs and 48 wickets in T20Is.

The cricketer celebrated his birthday recently on July 2 as he turned 27. While fans and cricketers took to their social media handles to wish the cricketer on his birthday, Pakistan Cricket Board made a big blunder while conveying their hearty wishes to the cricketer.

Usually, the national cricket board posts achievements of a player on his birthday. PCB posted some achievements of Hasan Ali and wished the cricketer on his birthday. But little did the PCB Twitter administrator know that he would use an offensive middle finger emoji while wishing Hasan Ali. However, PCB deleted the tweet later.

Meanwhile, PCB held a meeting with ICC and expressed its interest to host some important ICC events. PCB said it wants to host 6 ICC events from 2024 to 2031. PCB wants to host 2 T20 World Cups in 2026 and 2028 including the 50-over World Cups in 2027 and 2031. The national cricket body also wants to host the two Champions Trophy tournaments in 2025 and 2029.

“The Board of Governors (BoG) was informed that the PCB has submitted an expression of interest for six ICC Events in the 2024-31 cycle. Of these six events, the PCB is keen to host the three-venue ICC Champions Trophy 2025 and 2029 on its own.

While it has offered to host the remaining four events — two eight-venue ICC T20 World Cups 2026 and 2028, as well as the two 10-venue ICC Men’s Cricket World Cups 2027 and 2031 — in partnership with other Asian countries,” said the PCB in a statement.
