Sports Desk- Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) is famous worldwide for making social media mistakes. Once again PCB has made a big mistake on social media, after which it is being trolled on social media. PCB misspelled its own country Pakistan on social media.
The Pakistan cricket team has arrived in England for the forthcoming Test series scheduled to commence on August 5. Ahead of their departure on June 28 from the Allama Iqbal International Airport, the PCB took to Twitter and announced the same. However, the cricket board misspelt ‘Pakistan’ by writing ‘Pakiatan’ instead, thus opening the gates for much mockery by fans and followers across social media platforms. Although this tweet was later deleted, by then the trollers hit the target. Here are a few tweets:

This is not the first time that the PCB has been left red faced due to the mistakes made by its social media team. On September 19, 2018, the handle posted highlights of the 2017 Champions Trophy final to motivate its team, which was to take on India in the Asia Cup. They got the spelling of ‘happened’ wrong as it was spelt as ‘hapoened’
