"Not Getting Married Till RCB Wins IPL": Fan's Old Image Resurfaces As Virat Kohli And Co. Bow Out
Royal Challengers Bangalore crashed out of the IPL 2022 after losing to Rajasthan Royals in the Qualifier 2
Royal Challengers Bangalore once again were left empty-handed in the Indian Premier League (IPL) after they went out of the IPL 2022 losing to Rajasthan Royals in the Qualifier 2. The loss extended RCB's wait for an IPL title. This season, RCB had a new captain in Faf du Plessis. They qualified of the IPL play-offs in the fourth place and then defeated Lucknow Super Giants in the Eliminator. However, they could not go beyond that after their loss to Rajasthan Royals.
Now a RCB fan's old image, who had gone viral earlier, has resurfaced on social media where she can be seen holding a poster saying, "Not Gettin' Married Till RCB Wins IPL Trophy."
Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) batter Virat Kohli had high hopes riding on him when he walked out to open the batting alongside skipper Faf du Plessis in Qualifier 2 against Rajasthan Royals at Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. In the opening over bowled by Trent Boult, Kohli whipped the ball off his pads for a six over deep-square leg and it looked like the batter was in the zone. However, in the very next over, the 33-year-old was dismissed by Prasidh Krishna after scoring just 7 runs. The dismissal was a worrying sign as it saw the RCB batter chasing a short and wide delivery, to hand a simple catch to wicketkeeper Sanju Samson.
Sehwag went on to say that Kohli has probably committed more mistakes in this season of IPL as compared to his entire career.
"When you are out of form, you are just trying to middle every ball to get confidence. In the first over, he did let go of some deliveries, but this is exactly what happens when you are not in form, you go chasing after balls. Sometimes luck favours you, the ball does not catch the edge of your bat. But it did not happen this way. This is not the Virat Kohli we know; this is perhaps some other Virat Kohli this season," said Sehwag during Cricbuzz's mid-innings show.
"The number of mistakes he has made this season, he probably has not made as many in his entire career. When you are not scoring runs, you try to do different things and then you are dismissed in different ways. This time, Virat Kohli has been dismissed in all the ways possible. He could have possibly let go of that ball or he could have gone hard at it. He disappointed his fans and RCB fans, it was such a big match," he added.
