Australian all-rounder Mitch Marsh showed his extraordinary fishing prowess on Twitter on Monday when he posted a provocative snapshot of himself with Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard.

Marsh last week met the former England captain in Sydney after the Gerrard captained the Liverpool Legends team to a comprehensive 4-0 victory over the Australian Legends at ANZ Stadium.

But the 24-year-old Australian cricketer ensured their picture got the internet viral by referring to the Anfield great as a “Manchester United legend” along with a fishing emoji but later clarified it was nothing but a troll.

But unfortunately for some tweet maniacs, the irony was missed.
