When it comes to playing against the short ball, Rohit Sharma is one of the best in the business at the moment. This is majorly due to the proficiency with which he plays the pull shot, whether it's on the back foot or the front. So it is no wonder, then, that when the International Cricket Council (ICC) tweeted asking fans to pick a batsman with the best pull shot and did not have Rohit Sharma among the four players they chose to put up pictures of, he was left feeling a little grumpy.

With cricket, like most sports, brought to a standstill due to the coronavirus pandemic, many on twitter are either reliving past highlights, holding opinion polls or posting funny videos as players maintain quarantine.

The ICC on Sunday tweeted "Which batsman, past or present, has the best pull shot, in your opinion?" and accompanied the tweet with a split picture of Viv Richards, Ricky Ponting, Virat Kohli and Herschelle Gibbs.

Re-tweeting the post, Rohit Sharma wrote "Someone's missing here ?? Not easy to work from home I guess".

The ICC post received over 2K replies with many Indian fans picking Rohit Sharma over Virat Kohli, while the general consensus was that former Australia captain Ricky Ponting had the best pull shot.

Earlier, Kevin Pietersen picked former South Africa opener Andrew Hudson - a player few fans remembered - and largely faced disagreement from Twitterati.
