Journalist Gideon Haigh is the toast of the cricket world after taking a cheeky swipe at Donald Trump in an on-air segment during the fourth Test between Australia and India.
Haigh was helping present the lunch-time segment on Channel Seven’s coverage of the Brisbane Test on Sunday when eagle-eyed fans noticed a certain detail on his shirt.

The veteran journalist was sporting a t-shirt with the logo for ‘Four Seasons Total Landscaping’ on the front.
US Election aficionados will remember how ‘Four Seasons Total Landscaping’ went viral late last year after an embarrassing gaffe from Donald Trump’s campaign team.
Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani was forced to conduct a press conference from the carpark of the landscaping supplies store in Philadelphia after a major mix-up.
Trump’s team obviously meant to book the press conference for the Four Seasons hotel, but instead Giuliani conducted the media commitment from outside the small landscaping business, embarrassingly located next to a sex shop.
Cricket fans and commentators flocked to social media to celebrate Haigh’s t-shirt choice.

Incredible India fight back to stall Aussies
David Warner will spearhead Australia’s battle with the clock and India in Brisbane, where a 21-year-old debutant and tailender in his second Test rocked their bid to reclaim the Border-Gavaskar trophy
The hosts will resume at 0-21 with a 54-run lead on day four of the series-deciding fourth Test on Monday.
Warner was unbeaten on 20 on Sunday after slapping three consecutive boundaries in a six-over burst preceding stumps.
Tim Paine’s team must win the Gabba Test to end India’s four-year hold of the Border-Gavaskar trophy.
That challenge became more imposing when Washington Sundar and Shardul Thakur shifted momentum in scarcely-believable fashion, even by the standards set in a topsy-turvy series level at 1-1.
Sundar and Thakur’s 123-run stand rallied India from 6-186 to 336.
Wet weather, which washed out Saturday’s final session and is forecast to interrupt days four and five, has added another degree of urgency.
The timing of Monday’s declaration, presuming Australia are in a position to make one, will be one of the biggest calls of Paine's captaincy.
“Probably depends on who bats. If Davey (Warner) bats for a long time then things happen pretty quickly,” Josh Hazlewood said after snaring 5-57.
“It'll be pretty similar to maybe Sydney; three and a half or maybe four sessions (to bowl India out).
“It probably all depends on the weather as well ... that could come into calculations. But we'll just bat normally for the first two sessions and see where we're at.”
