KARACHI, May 14: The flamboyant Shoaib Akhtar has accused the ICC of �throwing neutrality out of window� after being trolled by the apex body for claiming that he can even now dismiss Australian run-machine Steve Smith in a jiffy.
The International Cricket Council used a series of images featuring basketball star Michael Jordan to troll Akhtar after he claimed that he can get Smith out on the fourth delivery after three �hurting� bouncers.
In the ICC�s first picture Jordan looks down at something. In the next image, it is revealed as Akhtar�s tweet, and third one shows the legendary basketball player laughing.
Akhtar, 44, tweeted on Wednesday that he was not amused by the ICC response.
�A symbolic tweet, how ICC has thrown neutrality out of the window. Basically this is how the state of affairs are run there,� Akhtar tweeted.
One of the fastest bowlers the game has seen, Akhtar posted an old video of himself and captioned it: �Dear @icc, find a new meme or Emoji. Sorry i couldn�t find any, only found some real videos.�
Earlier, Akhtar had taken to social media to respond to a poll on ESPNCricinfo that pitted some of the best in the business from the previous era with bowlers and batsmen from the modern-day.
Responding to the post that had pitted Akhtar against Smith, the Pakistani said, �Even today, 3 hurting bouncers and i can dismiss @stevesmith49 on the 4th ball. Lol.� � PTI
