RCB vs SRH: 10 Hilarious Memes On RCB’s Horror Batting Show

RCB vs SRH: It rarely happens in T20 cricket that when a team batting second starts their innings, it’s merely a formality; that the outcome of the match is a foregone conclusion.

That is what happened on Saturday at the Brabourne Stadium as the Sunrisers Hyderabad were set a target of 69 runs by the Royal Challengers Bangalore, which Kane Williamson‘s side chased down in just 8 overs – 72 balls to spare – shooting up their net run rate and taking the second place on the points table.

And although RCB managed to hold on to their fourth position – courtesy of 5 wins now in 8 matches – their net run rate has taken a damaging dip that could haunt them later. Moreover, this shambolic batting malfunction will also dent their batters’ confidence, the top-order that already had been struggling for touch and collective form.

RCB were hurt in the powerplay when they lost their top four, including Virat Kohli bagging his second successive golden duck. Dinesh Karthik, who has been their best batsman this season, was their last hope of a respectable total. But, the man who had bailed them out on most of their wins so far, had an off day and was dismissed for a duck.

9 of the 11 batters couldn’t go into double digits. The highest score of their innings came from Suyash Prabhudessai – 15. The next best was 12, jointly held by Maxwell and EXTRAS.

The chase was a quick dash with Abhishek Sharma smashing 47 runs in 28 balls; Harshal Patel was the sole gainer from the RCB team with Abhishek’s wicket.

Incidentally, on this date, 23 April, RCB got out to the lowest IPL total of 49 in 2017.

Memes galore as soon as RCB’s batting fell apart. Trollers didn’t even wait for Dinesh Karthik’s dismissal to tear into the RCB batting – rightly so: their top-three has been inconsistent, with Kohli’s forming now hurting, frustrating everyone.

Here are some of the best memes from RCB’s horror batting show:
