The Pakistan cricket team crashed and burned during their first match of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 against West Indies at the Trent Bridge in Nottingham.
Fakhar Zaman and Babar Azam top-scored with 22 as Winides skipper Jason Holder and Oshane Thomas ran through the Pakistan batting line-up.
West Indies bowled Pakistan out for 105 in just 21.4 overs, as Oshane Thomas picked up four wickets and Jason Holder took three.
After a watchful start, Pakistan lost Imam-ul-Haq in just the third over of the game, as Sheldon Cottrell brought out his signature 'salute' celebration. Zaman and Azam battled for a brief period, before Andre Russell bowled the opener in his first over and then had Haris Sohail caught behind off a sharp rising delivery for eight.
As Pakistan succumbed to their second-lowest total in a Cricket World Cup game, social media took the opportunity to troll Sarfaraz Ahmed & Co.

Windies wicket keeper Shai Hope took four catches for the West Indies, which is looking to win its third 50-over world title and first since its glory days in the 1970s.
West Indies cruised to victory with 7 wickets in hand in just 13.4 overs, as Pakistan lost their 11th straight completed ODI. The result of the match didn't stop the trolling.
Chris Gayle top-scoring with 50. He reached his half-century off 33 balls with three sixes and six fours before he was dismissed off the next ball he faced.
During his innings Gayle, who calls himself the "Universe Boss", broke the record for the most sixes hit in World Cup history. He now has 40 maximums, three more than retired South African batsman A B de Villiers.
Nicolas Pooran smashed paceman Wahab Riaz for a huge six over the square-leg boundary to give the 1975 and 1979 world champions an ideal start to their campaign.
