With no cricketing activity on field, the International Cricket Council (ICC) has thought of an interesting way to keep fans busy on the internet.
The ICC took to Twitter on Monday to ask netizens to post the most iconic photo of all time. The tweet has become a hit garnering around 2,000 replies in less than 12 hours.
A user shared Rahul Dravid’s first ton in 2011 at the Lord’s.
Another one shared a glimpse of 2016 match in Bangalore on this day, when Bangladesh needed 2 runs off 3 balls to beat India for the first time in a T20I. Unfortunately, the team lost three wickets in those deliveries.

The official Twitter account of Lord's Cricket Ground also replied to the post. “So many to name, especially at Lord's. However, this Wisden-MCC Photo of the Year winner by Atul Kamble in 2013 of @sachin_rt's final Test innings is rather iconic.”
