The official Twitter handle of Iceland cricket board (Krikketsamband Islands) is winning the internet lately. They have received a lot of support and love from fans of various cricket playing nations. Their hilarious tweets have been effective in keeping the Twitteratis engaged with them.

Their latest post from their account which has playing XI of Iceland and Pakistan is too much to hold your laughter.

Sharing their probable XI they wrote, "Ever since the @ICC announced Iceland would have test status we’ve been so excited for this match. Bit strange to host it in Dublin but whatever. We can now name our playing XI for tomorrow. The Pakistan XI is not official but “probable”. #ICEvPAK."

What got the Twitter users rolling on the floor laughing was Pakistan's playing XI. It had names like Inzamam Ul Haq's nephew, niece, best friend and even a bicycle. Actually, it was a dig at Inzamam's nephew Imam-ul-Haq, who will be playing his first Test match, against Ireland on Friday.

Ireland, who got the Test status in June of 2017, along with Afghanistan, will make their Test debut against Pakistan at the Malahide Cricket Ground on May 11.

The Iceland cricket twitter handle also took a jab at England Cricket Board for a proposal of using Ben Stokes and Joe Root to promote their new 100-ball format.

They wrote, "Calling @imVkohli and @stevesmith49. Please can we allocate you to the Iceland cricket team for marketing purposes. You won’t play. Sorry about that. But we need to reach a new audience in Iceland and nobody here knows who you are. So the @ECB_cricket said you would be ideal."

The tweet was followed by, "Conversation in Bónus supermarket: “Hæ Jónsi! Come and see Iceland play cricket. They just signed @imVkohli, the greatest white ball batsman ever. He’s not actually playing for them. But, you know, for marketing purposes.” Jónsi: “What’s a batsman?” #ecbmarketing."" 

Iceland will play four matches in England this July, including two against another unlikely cricketing nation - Switzerland.

They will also face an MCC XI at Hampton Hill in south-west London on 24 July.
