Moreover, the players of the team are also puzzled over the same with the likes of AB de Villiers, Virat Kohli and Yuzvendra Chahal among many taking to their respective social media handles to question to the franchise. Kohli even went on to say that he wasn’t informed before taking such a step.

RCB’s tweet takes fans’ excitement to another level

Rather, the RCB seems to be announcing something special and the tweets and posts from the players could also be a way to create hype and excitement among the fans. And taking it to another level, the RCB came up with a tweet 35 hours after deleting all its photos on social media urging the fans to gear themselves up for something special which is coming up.

The tweet also saw a picture divided into four parts with Facebook, Instagram, Youtube and Twitter in it with a loading sign on all of those. Moreover, even the profile picture of the RCB’s social media handles is updated with a loading sign now and Thursday could be the day when the franchise would break the silence on the matter.

Here’s the tweet:

However, as far as the reports are concerned, the Royal Challengers Bangalore is set to change its name to Royal Challengers Bengaluru. It is understood that a section of local fans were unhappy with the franchise for naming it ‘Bangalore’ and not ‘Bengaluru’. Having said that, it will be interesting to see, if the RCB is really changing its name or they are set to surprise the fans with something else.

Also, RCB has come up with this move after announcing a three-year partnership with Muthoot Fincorp Ltd, a part of the Muthoot Pappachan Group, popularly known as Muthoot Blue. Whatever the new change be, the RCB fans would be hoping that it changes the fortunes of the three-time finalists in the IPL.
