The International Lefthanders Day is observed on August 13 every year in order to celebrate the uniqueness and distinctiveness of the left-handers in a world where the majority of people are right-handers.
This year the apex organisation of cricket fraternity, International Cricket Council (ICC) decided to conduct a poll in which it posted a collage of photos of 10 left-handed cricketers and asked the Twitter users about their favourite left-hander.
Check out the pic:
“Happy #internationallefthandersday 🎉
Let us know who your favourite left-hander is!”
Here is the tweet made by ICC:
— ICC (@ICC) August 13, 2019
The players who were included in this tweet are Sourav Ganguly, Kumar Sangakkara, Brian Lara, Alastair Cook, Garfield Sobers, Adam Gilchrist, Zaheer Khan, Mitchell Johnson, Shakib Al Hasan and Wasim Akram.
This tweet by ICC made many cricket fans angry as they were not able to find their favourite left-handers in the collage. Some fans were not able to digest the fact that the Sri Lankan opener Sanath Jayasuriya was not in the collage while few were disappointed as the Indian cricketer Yuvraj Singh was not given a place in the list. On the other hand, there were several fans who were missing the Pakistani player Saeed Anwar .
Here are some of the selected reactions by the cricket lovers:
Without yuvraj singh this list is incomplete
