The Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) corrected a major goof up at their end involving their New Zealand star Finn Allen. While Allen wasn't part of the Playing XI of both the Bangalore matches, the franchise made a blunder with regards to its personally customised training equipment for this overseas star. Notably, the franchise had spelled his name wrong on his training kitbag. Luckily, the Virat Kohli-led side was quick to amend the mistake before the training session ahead of the team's third game. Allen himself took to social media to confirm the same.

Check out his Instagram story:

The soon to be 22-year-old Finn has limited T20 experience so far. In 16 matches, the top-order batsman has made 625 runs at an impressive strike rate of 187.68. However, with the likes of AB de Villiers, Glenn Maxwell in the batting order, Allen may have to wait for his turn in the RCB XI. Meanwhile, RCB have got off to a great start winning both their matches in the tournament. They defeated Mumbai Indians in the tournament opener before a fightback victory over Sunrisers Hyderabad. Bangalore will meet Kolkata Knight Riders next on Sunday's double header.
