Twitter has been frenzied by the Tweets as the cricketing fraternity was not yet done with the discussion over ICC teams of the decade and ICC awards of the decade have been exhibited today. Shockingly, neither the teams of the decade nor the awards of the decade contain any individual Pakistani players.
The brilliant stats of many Pakistani cricketers have been notable from January 1st, 2011, to October 7th, 2020. It is denoted as ‘in justification’ with the Men in Green as many of them deserve their names in the respective categories ICC has chosen.
To the public, it looks more like the Indian Premier League (IPL) squad than the ICC teams, as the crowd went on terming International Cricket Council (ICC) as the Indian Cricket Council.
It was shocking to see a total of twelve Indians; four in T20Is, two in Tests, three in ODIs, along with three awards. Virat Kohli, who occurs in ODI, T20I, and Test teams of the decade has been encountered with two awards.
Masses believe that the likes of Younis Khan, Mohammad Hafeez, Yasir Khan, Misbah ul Haq, Saeed Ajmal, and more were deserving of the different incentives categorized by ICC. Not only Pakistani but the foreign cricket fans, players have also been obsessed with ICC’s poor selection.
Let us have a look at a few of the Tweets

Not even a single player from Pakistan has found place in ICC's Test, ODI or T20I teams of the decade. This is pure biased decision of Indian cricket council so called ICC. Shame on you @ICC#ICCAwards look this stats pic.twitter.com/IJzn8WnS9g— James J. Davison (@JamesDavisonJ) December 27, 2020
