India had recently hosted a three-match T20I series against South Africa, which concluded on 1-1 draw. In the final T20I, South Africa made a strong come back from behind and left everyone shocked with their brilliant performance at Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru. Just before the match, Bengaluru police did a hilarious tweet that caught the headlines.
South Africa easily won the last showdown of the T20I series by 9 wickets. The innings of 79* runs from South African skipper, Quinton De Kock easily took away the match from Team India. Before De Kock’s brilliant knock, the visiting bowlers showed some excellent work with the ball that stopped the heavy batting line up of India at 134-9.
Kagiso Rabada went onto to take 3 wickets and was well supported by young bowlers from the other end. Bjorn Fortuin and Beuran Hendricks also remained successful in registering two scalps each on their name.
Police’s witty tweet for Team India bowlers ahead of 3rd T20I
When Team India was getting ready for the last T20I against Proteas, the police of Bangalore tweeted, “Notice from BCP: We are allowing over speeding on the pitch by our Indian bowlers at M. Chinnaswamy Stadium today, we won’t fine you for sure!,” to motivate Indian bowlers.

This tweet came after Parliament did some strict amendments in the Motor Vehicle Act. In the new rules, people will be charged with very heavy fines if anyone, if found breaking traffic rules, means that driving errors are going to make a huge dent in your monthly budget and some of them may cost you the same or more than your monthly fuel bill. At the moment, the governing body is already facing criticism for including such hefty fines into the laws.
However, the tweet done by the police got backfired and fans started trolling police and started sharing the bad conditions of roads in Bangalore. According to one fan’s tweet, the road in Bangalore is so bad that they can’t even think of overspeeding.
