Here's how Pakistani fans reacted:

Sajjad Sadiq, editor of the Pak Passion website, summed up in one picture.

Kamran Akmal hailed Rohit Sharma's performance while also congratulating Virat Kohli.

Sports journalist Rehanul Haq did not fail to see the lighter sight of rain stoppages.

He also used the opportunity to state the obvious.

Legendary Shoaib Akhtar dabbled in crystal gazing.

Multan Sultans owner Ali Khan Tareen also made a demand.

Even minister Shireen Mazari was forced to openly trash the team.

Fans chose to troll skipper Sarfaraz, veteran Shoaib Malik

But the best reaction came from South African cricketer Morne Morkel.

After winning the toss, Pakistan captain Sarfraz Ahmed put India into bat. But his move, made against the expressed desire of Pakistan Prime Minister and World Cup winning captain Imran Khan, backfired as India, powered by Rohit Sharma's 140 (113), set a target of 337.

Pakistan, in reply, reached 166/6 in 35 overs before rain caused a temporary halt to the proceedings. On resumption, their revised target was 302 and they had to chase it down in 40 overs. Only managing to reach 212/6, they fell to their third defeat of the tournament.
