The Pakistan Cricket Board ended up on the wrong side of things as the ICC made fun of the trophy that it presented for the T20I series against Australia.
Pakistan and Australia will lock horns in a three-match T20I series and what the two sides will be playing for, is a trophy that resembles a gigantic biscuit.
Here's more about the ICC's response.

Australia and Pakistan will face each other tonight in the first match of the 2018 TUC Cup.
The trophy was unveiled by skippers Aaron Finch and Sarfraz Ahmed.
The trophy has a pair of stumps, a golden ball and a gigantic biscuit at the crown. It is one of the weirdest trophies.
Post the ICC's reaction, Twitterati took trolling to another level.
The ICC made fun of the Pakistan board for trying to promote TUC's biscuits.
The second tweet, by the ICC, highlighted this trophy in one frame and compared it with the 2017 Champions Trophy.
Looking at both, one can easily spot the 'sponsored' trophy. This is one of those bizarre incidents in cricket.
Pakistan wouldn't have expected this reaction from the ICC.

A shift in formats and the chance to grab the No.1 ranking have the Aussies primed for their three-match T20I series with Pakistan. First game tonight from 3am AEDT #PAKvAUS pic.twitter.com/6XtiHkW03d— cricket.com.au (@cricketcomau) October 24, 2018
Pakistan are the number one side in the world in T20Is, but the Aussies will be aiming to topple them to move ahead in the rankings.
"We all know Australia are the best T20 team in the world at the moment," Sarfraz Ahmed said in his press conference.
These sides had met each other in July, in a tri-series.
Pakistan had won the competition.
