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.
The 39th encounter of IPL 2019 was a clash between the table topper CSK and standing last on the ladder, RCB. Kohli’s men looked in full force owing to their epic victory against KKR in their previous match. The evening’s proceedings began with CSK winning the toss and opting to bowl first.
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.
After this Royal Challengers Bangalore team’s twitter handle was all set to troll their all time rival. The official Twitter handle of RCB tried to troll CSK by comparing the variety of sambhar eaten in Tamil Nadu with the one eaten in Karnataka.
The tweet read, “Hello frands, sambhar peelo!”
