Adding fun and thrill to the rivalry, the Royals shared morphed images of the football greats in the RR and PBKS jerseys, respectively. The images show Inter Miami great Lionel Messi wearing Rajasthan Royals jersey, whereas Cristiano Ronaldo was wearing Punjab’s jersey. 

Notably, RR engaged in a fierce battle with Punjab Kings in a thrilling match on April 13, Saturday. The game saw the 2008 IPL winners clinching victory by three wickets on the second-last ball. Not only this but considering their last few records, fans have started to hail Punjab-Rajasthan games as the real El-Clasico. Since 2020, both teams have played eight matches, where seven of them turned out to be last-over finishes. 

Since Ronaldo and Messi are considered the greatest football rivals, RR added fuel to the fire by sharing their morphed images and labelled them as ‘WhatsApp forwards ’.
