RCB trolled: With the 14th edition of the IPL just a matter of days away from initiation, plenty of fans and franchises are getting involved in banter of the best of sorts. However, it was the Royal Challengers Bangalor (RCB) account which made a blunder by adding the CSK jersey emoji instead of their own.
Twitterati were quick to spot the mistake and went upon their business to troll RCB. What made it even more humorous was the fact that the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) official account also took a dig at their rivals with a tongue in cheek post.
England women’s cricketer Kate Cross also decided to join the fun and posted a picture of Virat Kohli wearing a CSK jersey while stating that it suits him.
However, the RCB Twitter handle didn’t bog down either and came up with a clever response while tagging Twitter India about their need of having better tech engineers. “Hey @Twitter @TwitterIndia, looks like you need better tech engineers. Bengaluru is the right place to start hiring. #WhatsWithYourEmojis,”
The first match of IPL 2021 will be contested between five-time champions Mumbai Indians (MI) and Virat Kohli’s Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB). The opening game will be contested at the MA Chidambaram Stadium on April 9. The Men in Red will be aiming to go the distance this time around, in order to end their trophies draught. RCB have finished as runners up on three separate occasions, and even qualified for the playoffs last season. But it just hasn’t meant to be so far.
Though it’s going to be another stern test for Kohli and his men, RCB do seem more of a cohesive unit, especially with their recent recruits from the auction table.
