Pakistan seem to be heading towards some Guinness world record for making ugly trophies. There is no denying that there have been plenty of bizarre trophies in the history of cricket, but who the hell writes ‘Oye Hoye’ on a trophy?
After the Biscuit trophy for Pakistan vs Australia T20I series we thought that Pakistan will come up with a better-looking trophy. But, we were obviously wrong.
A trophy was unveiled on November 15, one day prior to the first Test at Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi, that made the inner Daler Mehendi in us go “lalalala”. During the unveiling it seemed like even Pakistan skipper Sarfraz Ahmed was struggling to keep a straight face.
Here are the photos tweeted by Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB):

Artist? A normal trophy would do
you need to hire an artist who can design a trophy that befits the occasion of top level cricket. The sponsors are making these cheesy trophy which makes these trophies jokes;

Even mainstream media is trolling them
Hope the cricket matches up to the excitement the trophy has generated!

Tough competition… for the worst-looking trophy
It’s a close contest between the two but I think the biscuit trophy is winning at the moment for the worst trophy awards ever and look Williamson, he’s not at all proud of holding the trophy. He’s giving it to Sarfaraz “le Tu he Lele “

Dear organisers, aeast have some sanity, if NZ wins the series, they must be able to comprehend what’s there on the trophy !

Another reason to make your employees happy
Whoever is making these trophies is definitely not happy with his job

Ahaan! So that’s what it is.
It’s their ploy you see.
Make the trophies so ugly and shitty that no one else wants to win them.

There were reports that PCB had launched an inquiry after the ‘biscuit trophy’ fiasco. Seems like it didn’t work at all as embarrassment for the board continues.
