In what turned out to be an embarrassment of Naeem Ul Haque Special Assistant of Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan, he tweeted a picture of Indian legendary batsman Sachin Tendulkar with the caption “PM Imran 1969” implying that the picture is of former Pakistan cricketer Imran Khan from 1969.
The post became a source of a meme fest with Twitter users replying with images of celebrities from all spheres with their look-alike cricketers.

Haque is one of the closest aides of PM Imran Khan. He is one of the five founding members of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) political party – the current ruling party of Pakistan.
Earlier, Pakistan skipper Sarfaraz Ahmed was trolled on social media after he did not pay heed to Prime Minister Imran Khan’s advise about winning the toss and batting first in their high-voltage World Cup clash against India here on Sunday.
Taking to Twitter ahead of the match, Imran said: “Today, given the intensity of the match, both teams will come under great mental pressure and the power of the mind will decide the outcome of the match. In Sarfaraz we are fortunate to have a bold captain & today he will have to be at his daring best.
