The Royal Challengers Bangalore have made a sensational start to their IPL 2021 journey, winning three fixtures on the trot to occupy the top spot in the points table. After nearly two weeks of action, Virat Kohli’s team remains to be the only side that is undefeated, and their caravan now moves from Chennai to Mumbai, where the team is slated to play two games before they move to Ahmedabad for the next four encounters.
Having passed the Chennai leg with flying colors, the team, on their way to Mumbai, had an entertainer-cum-host on board in the airplane, who summed up RCB’s journey in the IPL so far and mentioned how their captain is “used to” getting fined, how RCB is not used to the No. 1 position on the points table, and why they should leave the tournament and fly back home.
On the aircraft was the witty comedian Danish Sait, who goes by the name “Mr. Nags” as RCB’s presenter and host. Known to play many roles, Mr. Nags took over as a cabin crew member on the flight. “This flight time is 90 minutes. If we take more time than that, our captain will be fined. And he is used to it,” said Mr. Nags, slyly referring to Virat Kohli being fined for slow over rates.
Mr. Nags launches a barrage of puns
“In case of an emergency, please don’t only depend on AB (de Villiers). You also do something,” said Mr. Nags, taking out another pun from his hat. “Helping you today is (Glenn) Maxwell, Shahbaz (Ahmed), and Harshal (Patel). I am sure they could also do with some help. So kindly, in Mumbai, do that.”
RCB is the only undefeated team in the tournament thus far and Mr. Nags ensured that everyone knew it as he suggested an alternate plan to travelling to Chennai.
“Virat, let’s go to Bengaluru. We are No. 1. Let’s leave it. Finish it. This doesn’t happen to us always, leave it,” said Mr. Nags, suggesting RCB move back home to Bengaluru and call time on IPL 2021. “Just throw him from (the) flight,” Kohli responded hilariously.
RCB will be seen in action against Rajasthan Royals at Wankhede Stadium on Thursday (22nd April, 20210).
