Renowned actress Deepika Padukone’s old tweet has gone viral on social media after Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) were bowled out for 92 runs against Kolkata Knight Riders on Monday. The Virat Kohli-led side looked rusty and struggled to get going with Devdutt Padikkal topping the scoring chart with 22 runs.

In the wake of RCB’s paltry show with the bat, an old tweet of Deepika Padukone has gone viral now. Deepika’s tweet was surrounding a game between RCB and Rajasthan Royals at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bangalore back in 2010. In that game, the Challengers bowled the Royals out for 92 after Praveen Kumar and Anil Kumble picked up three wickets each.

“92!!is that even a score!?way to go RCB!with u guys all the way…watching every second of it live!” Deepika’s tweet read. The Challengers, then led by Kumble, won the game by 10 wickets.

“It was important to get a good partnership” – RCB skipper Virat Kohli after KKR defeat

Virat Kohli admitted that RCB lacked good partnerships, which made the difference between the two sides. Speaking at the post-match presentation ceremony, Kohli said:

“It was important to get a good partnership. We didn’t expect that much dew to kick in that early. From 42 for 1, we lost 5 wickets for 20-odd.”

“It was a bit of a wake-up call, might as well have this at the start of the second leg so that we know what we should work on. You can make the argument that we were rusty but as professionals, you’re expected to turn up and adjust. Sometimes it can take you a game, I hope not two, to get into the tournament, you have to stay with the eight-ball, if you’re not, the other teams will be all over you,” he added. 

RCB are currently third in the points table with 10 points from eight games after Chennai Super Kings and Delhi Capitals.
