Ben Stokes is currently is in the form of his life. He won the latest Ashes match single handedly for his team which is not so many days after his terrific knock in World cup finals.
Now in an attempt of appreciating the allrounder, The International Cricket Council (ICC) found itself in the middle of a social media outrage for referring Ben Stokes as the ‘greatest cricketer of all time’.
After England were crowned the 50-over world champions for the first time, ICC’s official Twitter handle had posted a picture of Stokes with Tendulkar and captioned it, “The greatest cricketer of all time – and Sachin Tendulkar”. On Wednesday, ICC shared the picture once again with caption, “Told you so”.
Told you so 😉 https://t.co/b4SFcEVDWk— ICC (@ICC) August 27, 2019
On seeing this tweet, Sachin fans who roasted the ICC during the first time, didn’t think of sparing it now as well. They thrashed the Cricket Council left and right with their reply comments.

Instead of giving Greatest tag, You can use one of the Greatest moments/ Players. And yes Just don't compare.
You will never know how much @sachin_rt has given to cricket.
