Pakistan all-rounder Shoaib Malik tickled our funny bones with his choice of picture while sending Christmas greetings through his offical Twitter account. 

Malik used the picture from Pakistan's win over India in the first Twenty20 International (T20I) in Bangalore, which came on this day, December 25, back in 2012.

Merry Christmas dosto 🙏🏼

and a very happy 25th December 💥

Pakistan won the game by five wickets with captain Mohammad Hafeez top-scoring with 61 runs off 44 balls, followed by Shoaib Malik with 57 runs off 50 balls who remained not out and had shot the winning sixer of the match. 

India had set a target of 134 runs for Pakistan in the first innings at a loss of nine wickets, after Pakistan had won the toss and elected to field first.

Here is how Twitter reacted
