Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) are on cloud nine after their 1-run win over the defending champions and no.1 ranked team on IPL 12 points table Chennai Super Kings the other night. Parthiv Patel’s last ball run out of Shardul Thakur meant that MS Dhoni’s brilliant 84* in 48 balls went in vain, leaving CSK on 160 while they were chasing RCB’s 161 runs.
Dhoni had kept the IPL 2018 champions in the game single-handedly after CSK had just 30 odd runs on the board for 4 wickets after Dale Steyn removed Shane Watson and Suresh Raina on successive balls. Dhoni took the team to the final over, where 26 runs were needed and slammed Umesh Yadav for 24 runs in the over. He, however, missed the final ball when two runs were needed and CSK fell short narrowly.
RCB Twitter account trolls CSK team using Sambhar
The first round of the South Indian derby had gone to Chennai, when RCB were bowled out for 70 runs in the season opener on March 23 in Chennai. In the return fixture, Royal Challengers held their nerves to register just their third win of the season.
It was thanks to an amazing fifty from Parthiv Patel and contributions from AB de Villiers (25) and Akshdeep Nath (24) that took RCB to 161/7 in 20 overs. Then, Steyn, Saini and Yadav left CSK 28/4 before Dhoni unfolded his best to scale the highest ever IPL and T20 score of his career with 84*.
But it all fell short and RCB took the opportunity to use a meme to troll CSK fans. RCB tweeted,” Hello frands, sambhar peelo!”
It was a yellow sambhar that Drake in the meme rejected and was very happy to be presented the red sambhar, indicating the Men in Yellow ended up second best while the Black and Reds ended up winning the night.
