There were plenty of memes and jokes after Virat Kohli-led Royal Challengers Bangalore defeated Sunrisers Hyderabad by 10 wickets on Monday given the team’s record over the past few years.
After SRH won the toss and opted to field first, Devdutt Padikkal and Aaron Finch provided a brilliant start. Then South African AB de Villiers (51) guided the Bangalore-based team to a fighting total of 163/5. SRH struggled after losing wickets at regular intervals and were all out for for 153 in 19.4 overs.
Given RCB’s less-than-impressive performance over the past few seasons, fans were thrilled with the victory. On Twitter there were plenty of memes and jokes, with even critics of the team joining in.
