Mumbai: ICC recently tweeted painting, which is a tribute to the Indian skipper--Virat Kohli. The painting features Kohli seated on a throne while wearing a crown and holding a cricket bat in one hand and a ball in another.
The painting also features Kohli's ODI ranking as a batsman as well as the years in which India lifted the ICC World Cup trophy.
However, many felt that the image looked nothing like Kohli. Many felt that the illustration resembled KL Rahul instead. Moreover, the tweet received criticism as ICC was showing admiration only for a single team's captain. ICC also replied back to Michael Vaughan's criticism regarding the tweet.
Here are some of the tweets:

Embarassing. Is this really an international organisation overseeing the game? An act of shame for Cricket as a sport. https://t.co/MZqFUahriO— Shyam (@shyam_oldschool) June 5, 2019
