With absolutely no live sport going on around the world due to the coronavirus pandemic, the ICC has taken it upon themselves to keep cricket fans well entertained.

After opening up their archives more than a fortnight ago, the ICC has opened up a treasure trove of childhood memories for fans by asking, “What cricket misconception did you have for way too long as a child?”

Within the first six hours of posing this question, the ICC’s social media handles were flooded with well over a thousand comments along with six thousand plus likes.

However, users also did not fail to remind the ICC and everyone about the ‘spring’ confusion, wherein plenty of children thought Sri Lanka’s Sanath Jayasuriya and Australia’s Ricky Ponting had a spring in their bat – mostly because of their destructive batting against India in the late 90s and early 2000s.
