The International Cricket Council might not be able to host new matches for the viewers, but it has several other ways to keep the audience engaged. Apart from showing highlights of some of the most famous matches in history, ICC also keeps throwing random quizzes for cricket lovers across social media platforms.

A Twitter user elaborated, “India vs Australia 2007 ODI series. 7th ODI. Murali Kartik took 6 for 27 and scored unbeaten 21 runs to take India into 2 wicket victory.”
