Pakistan vs Sri Lanka: Empty Stadium & Power Cut, Fans Troll On Twitter
Sri Lanka tour of Pakistan is crucial for Pakistan for many reasons but the 2nd ODI of the three-match series was embarrassing. The match had to go ups and down because of electricity failure. The match was played at the National Stadium (Karachi).
This was the first ODI of the visitors after the 2009 incident where Sri Lankan players were attacked by terrorist in Lahore. Pakistan is playing in their soil from 2015. This was an important match for Sarfaraz Ahmed-led Pakistan team as they are playing after so many years in the home ground. But the electricity problem made it more miserable and the match became a subject of mockery between the fans.
Here are some Twitter reaction from fans-
Shame on PCB
Shame on Sindh Govt.
Shame on Stadium Management

It was to be noticed that the stadium was empty too. Before the series started, Pakistan skipper Sarfaraz Ahmed requested Pakistan public to come in good numbers to celebrate the special day in Pakistan cricket history. But it was felt that the fans had no interest to watch the match. Twitter was full of trolls with these two subjects.
