Herschelle Gibbs Trolls ICC On His Birthday For A Typo The Cricketing Body Made

Updated on 22 October, 2017 at 11:05 pm By

The International Cricket Council (ICC) keeps a tab on all the important events of world cricket. This includes the birthdays of some of the greatest players of the game.

The official twitter handle of the ICC makes it a point to wish cricketers on their birthdays. So it was no surprise when ICC wished South African legend Herschelle Gibbs on his 43rd birthday today.

But then something happened that the embarrassed the ICC. And Gibbs himself pointed that out to the cricketing body.

 

Gibbs thanked ICC for they had got the birthday right but pointed out that they had made a mistake in the statistics.

Instead of typing 8,094 ODI runs, ICC tweeted ‘8,94’ runs. It was a typo which Gibbs caught.

Of course, had the South African not had a keen eye, would he be able to smack that ball out of the park on so many occasions?

ICC posted a corrected tweet:


And one of the persons who handles ICC’s official Twitter account wrote an apology.


Gibbs holds the ODI record for hitting six sixes in an over against Netherlands in the World Cup of 2007. But he is more famous for slamming 175 against Australia steering South Africa to a successful world record chase of 434.

Mistakes are common on social media. People often post blatantly incorrect stuff or just make silly errors on any of the famous social media platforms. But unlike common social media users, organisations have a specialist team handling their online mouthpieces. This is done to ensure that there is zero chance of errors. Yet there is no guarantee that specialists would be always correct.
