Meanwhile, the fans aren’t happy with the anthem and they didn’t shy away from expressing their disappointment over the same. Fans of RCB feels that the anthem should have been in Kannada instead of Hindi. On the other hand, there were many who trolled the franchise as the words in the anthem weren’t clear.
The tweet was flooded with the tweets from disappointed fans, who just can’t stop slamming the Virat Kohli-led franchise over their anthem.

Should've included more kannada
Spanish, German, French teams don't include English, why we need to do it ? Go Local

The entire state is fighting a battle today to avoid Hindi imposition in the state of Karnataka.
Comes RCB – Which represents the state of Kannada Nadu having a rich cricketing history releasing it's anthem which involves unnecessary use of Hindi.

Why Hindi in RCB anthem.? Please replace Hindi lines with Kannada. Otherwise don't expect support from us. #StopHindiImposition

Will your management ever learn ? will they ever introspect? why doesn't your management respect local fans and their emotions ? what is the necessity to ignore Kannada and use Hindi in anthem ? does not make sense even one bit, a huge disappointment, ur anthem and ur management.
