ICC tags Ben Stokes as the greatest cricketer of all time, Sachin Tendulkar fans blasts them
New Delhi : The International Cricket Council (ICC) were slammed brutally on the social media after they tagged Ben Stokes as the 'greatest cricketer of all time'. In one of the tweets, ICC quoted re-tweeted a post from World Cup 2019, in which they had shared a photograph of Sachin Tendulkar along with England all-rounder Ben Stokes with the caption ‘The greatest cricketer of all time along with Sachin Tendulkar’.
They captioned the repost as ‘told you so’ after Stokes delivered a match-winning performance a couple of days ago in the Ashes.
The tweet did not go well with the Sachin Tendulkar fans. Everyone said that Ben Stokes definitely deserves accolades for his outstanding performance but they were not agree to rate him higher than legendary Indian cricketer Sachin Tendulkar.
I think Sachin deserves more respect than this.. In the late 90s he shouldered the Entire Indian cricket team on his Own..countless times.. The only difference.. There wasn't any Twitter during that time..— Thoukir Ahamed, MBBS (@thoukirkool007) August 27, 2019

Stokes, who scored a match-winning 135 not out in the second innings to guide the team to an epic series-levelling one-wicket win and also took four important wickets, has moved up two places to grab the second position among all-rounders for the first time in his career, having occupied third position in September 2017.
