Karachi: “Embarrassed” by the biscuit-shaped trophy that became a social media joke before the T20 series against Australia, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) on Wednesday launched an inquiry into the fiasco and its marketing head resigned.

Social media was flooded with jokes ridiculing the PCB after a biscuit-shaped trophy was unveiled for the series earlier this month. “The silverware was an embarrassment for us and investigation is being held as to how the concerned department allowed this to happen,” a PCB official said on condition of anonymity. Another source said the head of PCB’s marketing department, Naila Bhatti, has now resigned. The silverware for the T20 series was trolled across social media, and the International Cricket Council (ICC) added fuel to the fire by comparing it with the Champions Trophy silverware.
