    Since they're asking me a yes/no question, I think I'd probably say "No, lost."

    Now if they asked me "Did you win or lose?", then I might say "lose" or "lost".

    Your question needs "ask" or "asked" after "friends".

    Yes, Thank you.

    My friends ask me if we won the cricket match. Can I just reply with one word: "Loss" or "lost"
