Iceland Cricket sarcastically trolled Pakistan’s Director of Cricket, Mohammad Hafeez, following his comments blaming umpiring and technology for their team’s defeat in the second Test against Australia.

During the post-match press conference, Hafeez attributed their loss to flaws in umpiring decisions and technology.

“We made mistakes as a team but even umpiring and technology had flaws in the second game. The result would have been different had things went in our favour,” said Mohammad Hafeez.

Reacting sharply to Hafeez’s statement, Iceland Cricket chimed in, sarcastically on X.

“It’s amazing. How can the more talented and superior team have lost 16 matches in a row in Australia? Surely those lucky Aussies will stop being lucky soon,” Iceland Cricket posted.

For the unversed, during the Melbourne Test between Pakistan and Australia, a crucial umpiring decision sparked the debate about the use of technology.

Pakistan needed 98 runs with 5 wickets in hand in the chase of 317 when Mohammad Rizwan was given out by the third umpire. The ball hit the wristband of Rizwan’s glove and Alex Carey took a brilliant catch behind the stumps.

Michael Gough turned down Australia’s appeal and Pat Cummins went for the DRS. The third umpire, Richard Illingworth, found evidence that led to overturning the on-field decision, resulting in Rizwan’s dismissal.

This dismissal opened the floodgates as Pakistan lost five wickets for a mere 18 runs, losing in a 79-run defeat.

Australian skipper Pat Cummins also reacted over Mohammad Hafeez’s comments with a witty smile, saying, “Ahhhh. Cool. They played well. I am glad we got the win.”

“It doesn’t really matter, does it? It is the team who wins at the end,” he added.
