The Royal Challengers Bangalore team has been the punching bag when it comes to fans making fun of them on social media for the performance in the last three seasons of the Indian Premier League. They finished 8th in 2017 and 6th in 2018 and started their campaign in IPL 2019 with six straight losses in six matches.

The Virat Kohli-led side has found some form in the second half of the tournament with some wins in their kitty but still, sit at the bottom of the points table with four wins from 11 matches. Much of the blame of the franchise’s failure has been put on their extremely fragile bowling attack with the likes of Umesh Yadav, Mohammed Siraj and others leaking runs like a busted pipe.

The team has been utilizing many fringe players on the bench in hopes of cracking a winning combination. This has led to the likes of Shivam Dube, Pawan Negi, Prayas Ray Burman, Colin de Grandhomme and more getting game time. But one man has still to get a game and that is Delhi’s Kulwant Khejroliya and RCB fans were wondering if Kohli forgot that he was in the squad.

Fans ask Virat Kohli about the missing case of Kulwant Khejroliya

Kulwant Khejroliya hails from Rajasthan but plays his senior cricket for Delhi in Ranji Trophy and other domestic tournaments. A talented left-arm pacer capable of both speed and guile, he was picked by RCB in IPL 2018 auction and got three games in that season, picking two wickets.

Meanwhile, for Delhi, he came in news for picking a hat-trick in his bowling figures of 6/31 in 10 overs against Haryana in the quarter-finals of the 2018–19 Vijay Hazare Trophy. Given that these performances would be enough to give him some matches in the ongoing IPL, with other bowlers going for runs. Mohammed Siraj has the economy of 9.55, Umesh Yadav has an economy of 9.39 and Southee has given runs at a rate of 13.11 rpo.

This has led the fans to question Virat Kohli whether he has forgotten that Khejroliya is in the squad and tweeted their displeasure.
