Sri Lanka pulled out a massive upset as they beat Australia in the first T20I of the three-match series at the Melbourne Cricket Ground. Australia fielded a largely weakened side as their core squad was in India to prepare for the 4-match Test series. Sri Lanka won the match off the last delivery and Twitter went absolutely nuts, congratulating the Sri Lankan team.
Here are some of the best reactions:
When Sri Lanka knock off these runs, they will go to a 7-4 advantage over Australia in T20Is. #AusvSL

Zampa ‘asked questions’ during that bowling spell. Like ‘who’s that clown bowling at the other end? ‘ and ‘where’s Glenn? ‘. #AUSvSL
