After Shikhar Dhawan's glorious 90-run knock helped India post a total of 174, Sri Lanka's Kusal Perera took away the game with his explosive powerplay hitting. Twitterati weren't impressed with India's below average display against a weak Lankan side and they made it known in innovative ways.
Brief Scores : India 174/5 (Shikhar Dhawan 90, Manish Pandey 37; Dushmantha Chameera 2/33, Danushka Gunathilaka 1/16) lost to Sri Lanka 175/5 (Kusal Perera 66, Thisara Perera 22; Washington Sundar 2/28, Yuzvendra Chahal 2/37) by 5 wickets.
Rohit Sharma with another duck...
When will K.L. Rahul get his chance?

Is he good enough to replace Ashwin?
Looks like India have found a replacement for Ishant Sharma
D Sports is getting trolled left, right and centre
I can understand Sony cutting Supersport feed abruptly to play a few ads extra but DSport taking it to the next level by cutting off their own presenter.#SLvIND— Vinayakk (@vinayakkm) March 6, 2018

Why Unadkat was sold for around 11 crore in IPL? #SLvIND— Rizwan Haider (@razi_haider) March 6, 2018
Is this the reason why India lost the match?
Among the three squads in #NidahasTrophy2018, Indian squad is the least experienced, with a combined aggregate of 257 matches!— Rajneesh Gupta (@rgcricket) March 6, 2018
The corresponding figure for Sri Lankan squad is 293 and for Bangladesh is 341.#SLvIND
