Second ODI between Pakistan and Sri Lanka at the National Stadium in Karachi on Tuesday was marred by repeated floodlight failures due to power cuts. Six floodlights had stopped working during the second ODI twice with play being disrupted for at least half an hour. Trolls on Twitter took note of the incident and started trolling the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) for their poor arrangement for the match.
One of the trolls even suggested the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) might have failed to pay the electricity bills on time.
Another troll tweeted, “International live telecast of Economy failure”.

Sri Lanka returned to play a bilateral series in Pakistan for the first time since their team bus was attacked in 2009. However, premier Sri Lanka cricketers Lasith Malinga, Angelo Mathews along with eight other players opted out of the tour citing security concerns.
Pakistan won the second ODI by 67 runs against Sri Lanka. A century from Babar Azam and a five-wicket haul from Usman Shinwari helped Pakistan clinch the victory.
