The International Cricket Council (ICC) recently announced the team of the decades for all three formats. England’s all-rounder Ben Stokes made to the Test and ODI team of the decade for which the ICC awarded baggy caps to all its winners.
On the other hand, India’s skipper Virat Kohli was the only player to make it to all the three format team, subsequently, he was also awarded the ‘ICC player of the decade award‘.England’s all-rounder Ben Stokes who found a place in two of the teams, went on to flaunt his Baggy cap on his social media handles wherein he captioned it saying ‘it just doesn’t seem right’.
Just Doesn’t Seem Right – Ben Stokes
Stokes clearly had no reservations against the ODI baggy cap but clearly wasn’t happy with the Test baggy cap being bottle green in colour. It’s the colour that is also worn by the Australian players in tests and with the rivalry, Australia and England share with the Ashes series it just disappointed the all rounder.
“Very proud of both these cap’s, one of them just doesn’t seem right, it’s a bit BAGGY and GREEN 😉 thanks @icc”
In the followup, the ICC responded to Ben Stokes in a hilarious way to apologise to Ben Stokes and tweeted, “Sorry @BenStokes38.”
