Netizens flooded social media platform X with memes as Royal Challengers Bengaluru clashed against Rajasthan Royals in the IPL 2024 Eliminator. The third and fourth standing sides on the standings rubbed shoulders against each other on May 22, Wednesday, at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. The match saw RR skipper Sanju Samson winning the toss, who invited the rivals to bat first. The Bengaluru-based franchise who came on the back of a five-match streak, started on a shaky note. 

Former skipper Virat Kohli who is currently the Orange Cap holder couldn’t do much with the bat and went to pavilion after scoring just 33 runs in 24 deliveries. Not only this, but skipper Faf Du Plessis could also come up with just 17 runs in 14 deliveries. RCB batters failed to put up a decent show against lethal RR bowlers. RR’s Avesh Khan picked three wickets whereas spinning ace R Ashwin got two successes.
