Queensland Police took a dig at England cricket fans after their team's defeat to Australia in the ongoing ICC Cricket World Cup 2019. England suffered a 64-run defeat to Australia at Lord's on Tuesday. Australia's big victory against their traditional rivals prompted Queensland Police to share a tongue-in-cheek tweet that has gone viral online.
"The tears of English cricket fans have made driving conditions tricky this morning. Drive safe Brisbane," the police force wrote on Twitter in a not-very-subtle dig at England.
