Twitter was abuzz with memes and reactions Monday night when Sri Lanka beat Pakistan in second T20I to claim series in Lahore.
Disappointed fans took to the social media platform and tried to get over the tragic loss through hilarious jokes and memes.
This woman’s reaction went viral as diehard cricket fans thought it pretty much sums up the match. Maybe she is wondering it would have been better to buy a lawn suit than spending on the match ticket, a user remarked.

Pointing out Pakistani cricketers diet, fans didn’t hesitate from blaming Biryani for the loss although it’s not even in this picture.
Some thought of former coach Mickey Arthur and said he must be like “Are you missing me?” Under his guidance, Pakistan won the 2017 ICC Champions Trophy title on June 18.

This cricket lover compared Pakistan team chasing a target to burning calories; the effect lasts for the next few days in both cases.
Watching Pakistan chase is an extreme sport. You will end up losing pounds and burning a lot of calories. The best thing is that the effect lasts for the next couple of days as well.#UmarAkmal #PAKvsSL #CricketComesHome

Srilankan batsman Bhanuka Rajapaksa’s Twitter handle caught some fans’ attention too. They want to know what he was thinking when he decided on that unusual username, maybe that’s his password?
