A lot has changed in the Royal Challengers Bangalore camp. Virat Kohli has stepped down as the leader, Faf du Plessis is the new captain, and AB de Villiers has, well, moved on. However, one thing that hasn’t changed for RCB, according to IPL fans on microblogging site Twitter, is their “ability" to lose matchesfrom strong positions. Batting first against Mayank Agarwal’s Punjab Kings, Captain Faf du Plessis top-scored with a 57-ball 88, while Virat Kohli made 41 not out as the duo shared 118 runs for the second wicket. Dinesh Karthik chipped in with a quickfire 32 not out off 14 balls. The mighty target of 206 piled by RCB was chased down by Punjab in 19 overs. Shikhar Dhawan and Bhanuka Rajapaksa scored 43 each up the order, while MShahrukh Khan and Odean Smith remained not out on 24 and 25 respectively as Punjab breached the target withsix deliveries to spare.
Is vintage RCB back? Twitterati who watched the huge scoring match mocked Royal Challengers Bangalore with more mockery and memes.
