Cricket fans are unhappy with the International Cricket Council (ICC), the world body of cricket for posting an illustration of Indian skipper Virat Kohli sitting on a throne with a crown on his head.
ICC tweeted the following picture on Wednesday just before India’s first match in the 2019 ICC Cricket World Cup started.
