Fans troll PCB for spelling ‘Pakistan’ wrongly ahead of team's departure for England tour

The shameful gaffe resulted in the brutal trolling of PCB's social media team.

Pakistan cricket team left for England on July 28 | Twitter/PCBPakistan cricket and entertainment go hand in hand. Last week, the PCB was left embarrassed after all-rounder Mohammad Hafeez's private COVID-19 test result returned negative after being tested positive by the board.

The second moment of embarrassment for PCB came just before the team's departure for England tour on Sunday (June 28).

Sharing the pictures of cricketers boarding flight, PCB’s social media team made a shameful gaffe as they wrote wrong spelling of their beloved country in the caption.

'Pakistan' was spelled as 'Pakiatan' and fans didn't wait for long to troll the cricket board.

It is not the first time that PCB’s social media team grabbed the headlines for their mistake.

On September 19, 2018, PCB had misspelled the word 'happened' while sharing a tweet showing the highlights of Pakistan’s emphatic win over India in the Champions Trophy 2017 final.

Moreover, PCB’s Twitter handle has also been disrespectful towards former skipper Sarfaraz Ahmed. Moments after Sarfaraz got sacked from the captaincy in October last year, PCB shared a post showing Pakistan players dancing around the outgoing leader.

At the time, PCB had received flak from the netizens and also apologised for the insensitive nature of the post.
