Netizens troll Indian-owned SA20 franchise for copying PCB

KARACHI: Indian-owned SA20 franchise Sunrisers Eastern Cape faced a lot of criticism online from cricket fans for allegedly copying the idea of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB).

Following the inaugural draft of South Africa’s cash-rich league, one of its Indian franchises – Sunrisers Eastern Cape – announced their squad by pasting the pictures and details of drafted players on a concept passport, which the PCB did ahead of their tour to the Netherlands and the Asia Cup 2022.

When Eastern Cape posted the passport of English wicketkeeper batsman Adam Rossington on Twitter, Pakistani fans were quick to call out the Indian team for imitating the PCB’s idea.

“You stole someone’s idea, shame,” a user replied.

A user advised the Indian franchise to give credits and wrote, “You guys should give credits, please.”
