An Old Tweet Of Virat Kohli Has Gone Viral: Royal Challengers Bangalore players and the franchise’s fans were over the moon after the reds qualified for the playoffs following Mumbai Indians’ thrilling 5-wicket win over the Delhi Capitals whose campaign came to an end on a disappointing note.
Had DC won the game, they would have toppled RCB out of the fourth position. For the couple of days leading up to the MI-DC game, RCB fans and even their players had been rallying behind MI showing their support to Rohit Sharma and his boys.
Mumbai ended their disappointing season on a slightly happier note with a win in front of their home crowd at the Wankhede Stadium. Tim David’s 11-ball 34 put the game in MI’s pocket in their chase of 160 as DC players panicked; their bowlers went haywire with their lengths and Pant made embarrassing errros.
As MI paved the way for RCB to go into the playoffs, one decade-old tweet of Virat Kohli for Rohit Sharma went viral.
“well played rohit 🙂 great stuff and good win for us. we are on the board :),” Kohli had tweeted on June 7, 2011. And now the tweet has gone viral on the internet.
