Another thriller in Chennai went to defending side as Royal Challengers Bangalore defeated Sunrisers Hyderabad to register a second consecutive win in the IPL 2021. With the win, the Virat Kohli-led side has jumped to the top spot on the points table. After being put to bat, RCB had posted only 149/8 despite Glenn Maxwell’s 59 off 41.
Jason Holder was the pick of the bowlers for SRH as he took 3/30, while Rashid Khan scalped two wickets for just 18 runs in his 4 overs. In return, Despite cruising at one stage, SRH failed to chase the target and were restricted to 143 runs, Shahbaz Ahmed was the star with the ball as his 3 wickets in one over changed the course of the game.
Of course, Twitterati was ready with their wits and memes and they left no stones unturned to troll the losing side.
Here are some of the best tweets:
