Team Pakistan may have lost Sunday's ICC World Cup match against India by 125 runs but Pakistani celebrities and their spirit won big.
Matches between Pakistan and India are not only the most watched on television but also become the most talked-about topics on social media. The latest trend on Twitter at the moment is #PakvsIndia, ever since last night.
From the meme-able yawn of the Pakistani captain Sarfraz Ahmed to him ignoring the Prime Minister's advise and choosing to bowl first - politicians, cricketers and celebrities and literally everyone took to Twitter to express their disappointment over losing the game yesterday.
4/5 1. In order ro have a winning offensive strategy Sarfaraz must go in with specialist batsmen and bowlers because "Raillu Kattas" rarely perform under pressure - especially the intense kind that will be generated today. 2. Unless pitch is damp, Sarfaraz must win the toss & bat— Imran Khan (@ImranKhanPTI) June 16, 2019
As much as I love my country and team, the truth is that India has a better cricket team. There was a time when we were a tough competition for India, not anymore. Very disappointing.— Zaid Ali (@Za1d) June 16, 2019
Congratulations to @BCCI on a well deserved win today. The standard of cricket being played has been exceptionally high & credit goes to IPL for not only helping identify & harness talent, but also in equipping younger players with pressure handling techniques #CWC19 #PAKVIND https://t.co/MfiwQxwjrK— Shahid Afridi (@SAfridiOfficial) June 16, 2019

Cricket aside, Pakistanis are always winning the trolling game.
