Mumbai: Ben Stokes hit a stunning unbeaten century as England defeated Australia by one wicket to win an epic third Ashes Test at Headingley on Sunday and keep the Ashes alive. Stokes stitched an unbeaten 76-run partnership with Jack Leach for the last wicket to achieve the unthinkable.

However, before the Ben Stokes magic had taken place, the International Cricket Council’s (ICC) official Instagram handle committed a huge blunder. With the match still in progress and England nine wickets down, the handle posted a photo which congratulated Australia for retaining the Ashes, thus predicting an Australian victory.

 

After some time the ICC deleted their post, but the damage had already been done and the entire internet was ready with their barrage of trolls.

Here’s the deleted post.
