Gautam Gambhir Got Trolled: Virat Kohli’s master-class captaincy, mesmerizing spells of bowlers, and impeccable fielding performance by the fielders helped their team Royal Challengers Bangalore to restrict their arch-rivals Kolkata Knight Riders to just 84-8 off their 20 overs in the 39th match of the ongoing IPL 2020.
The bowlers of RCB stole the show tonight at Sheikh Zayed Stadium as they bundled-up the KKR’s batting line-up in quick successions. While Mohammed Siraj starred with the ball claiming three wickets for just 8 runs from his 4 overs, on the other hand, spinners Yuzvendra Chahal and Washington Sundar also picked 2 and 1 wickets respectively. Later, RCB’s talented batsmen were able to chase the target runs successfully.
Meanwhile, former Indian and Kolkata Knight Riders cricketer Gautam Gambhir, who took the Kolkata Knight Riders team to new heights under his leadership, is getting trolled mercilessly on Twitter. He is currently a part of the Star Sports Network where he can be seen giving his take on the happenings of the ongoing tournament.
Prior to the match between RCB and KKR, Gautam Gambhir made a statement about the one-on-one match-up between the two sides. Despite the history of rivalry between Kolkata and Bangalore, which began during the 2008 edition of the IPL, Gambhir claimed that there is no rivalry between Kolkata Knight Riders and Royal Challengers Bangalore.
Not just this, Gambhir also mocked RCB about the fact that they are yet to win a trophy. He said that there is no rivalry between the two sides as KKR has won the trophy twice and RCB is yet to win the cup.
Well, the comments didn’t go down well with the netizens, who took to their Twitter to poke fun at Gambhir’s statement on Virat-led franchise. Twitterati are leaving no stone unturned to slam Gambhir, especially after RCB defeated KKR last night. From hilarious memes to jokes, twitterati are trolling Gambhir left, right, and center.
Here, check out the reactions of Twitterati on this:
