The International Cricket Council (ICC) trolled Pakistan’s legendary former fast-bowler Shoaib Akhtar after the latter’s Twitter jibe on Australia’s star batsman Steve Smith.

The Rawalpindi Express, while responding to a tweet that featured head-to-head battles, claimed that it would merely take four balls for him to dismiss Smith.

"Even today, 3 hurting bouncers and I can dismiss Steve Smith on the 4th ball. Lol," Akhtar tweeted.
