Twitter went into a rage after India's stunning win at Lord's. While most posted congratulatory messages for Team India, others shared some hilarious memes to celebrate the victory.

In the second Test, India produced a stunning display to beat England by 151 runs and takes the lead of 1-0 in the five-match test series on Monday.

However, Jasper Bumrah and Mohammed Shami's defiant partnership put India back on top, and then the carnage began at Lord's.

A fired-up Indian bowling attack came all guns blazing at the English, who failed to handle the heat. England openers fell for ducks. England captain Joe Root, who had scored an unbeaten 180 in the first innings, tried to keep India at bay, but once Bumrah dismissed him, India went for the kill.

For a while, it seemed that Jos Buttler and Moeen Ali would take England to safety, but Siraj took two wickets in two balls to set the cat among the pigeons.

Once Buttler fell for 25 in the final hour of play, it was only a matter of time. Siraj burst through Anderson's defense to give India a memorable win at the 'Home Of Cricket.'
