Harmanpreet Kaur, the India women’s T20I skipper, has had a pretty rough time on the cricket field. She was recently a part of the national team in the T20 World Cup in Australia. Though her team managed to qualify for the final against the hosts, Kaur’s performance was shambolic to say the least. In five matches, she could only manage 30 runs at a dismal average of six.

Her strike-rate of 71.42 also spoke loads about how she fared in the mega event. She didn’t bowl her off-breaks either. The Punjab-born doesn’t have any cricket to look forward to, at least for the time being. The coronavirus pandemic has made sure that every other cricket tournament came to a halt. People around the world have constantly been told to not go outdoors and stay indoors.

Kaur puts forth her best IPL side

In the quarantine time, Kaur decided to conduct a Question and Answer session on Twitter. Bearing in mind her popularity, a number of fans asked her plenty of questions. One of the fans also asked her about her favourite team in the Indian Premier League (IPL).

The fan took to Twitter and wrote, “Which your favourite IPL team #AskHarman,” Harman didn’t take time in naming the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB), captained by Indian men’s skipper Virat Kohli. She replied to the tweet and wrote, “RCB @RCBTweets,”

Here is Harmanpreet Kaur’s tweet

RCB has been plying their trade in the IPL ever since the inaugural edition in 2008. But they are yet to get their hands on the coveted trophy even after 12 seasons. In 2009, they made the final and missed out to the Deccan Chargers. In 2016, Kohli’s men again qualified for the final. However, to their dismay, David Warner’s Sunrisers Hyderabad got past them in the crunch match.

Over the years, RCB has had some of the best in the business. From Brendon McCullum, Jacques Kallis, AB de Villiers, Dale Steyn and Kohli himself, the Challengers haven’t been short of firepower. In the 2020 auction, they secured the services of Aaron Finch, the Australia limited-overs skipper. It remains to be seen whether or not they are able to turn their fortunes around.
