England all-rounder Ben Stokes while thanking the International Cricket Council (ICC) for inducting him in the ODI and Test Team of the Decade pointed how the Test team cap was 'Baggy and Green'.

 

The Baggy Green is synonymous with the Australian cricket team's Test cap and ICC also took it sportingly and apologised with a smile. Sharing pictures of both the caps on Twitter and Instagram, the all-rounder captioned the post, "Very proud of both these caps, one of them just doesn't seem right, it's a bit BAGGY and GREEN. Thanks @icc."

Replying, ICC wrote: "Sorry @BenStokes38! (laughing emoji)"

Former Australia batsman Marcus North was quick to point how the Baggy Green suits him with a wink. "Baggy Green suits you mate! (wink)."
