RCB's Defeat And Memes: Another Season, Another Exit, Another Set of Trolls
"Ee Saala Cup Namde! (The Cup is Ours This Year)" - This is how Royal Challengers Bangalore fans start their IPL journey every season, hoping to win the cup at least for once. Alas! the wait continues. After RCB's defeat in 'Eliminator' against the Sunrisers Hyderabad, a new set of RCB trolls trended on the social media. Linking RCB's elimination with the current COVID scenario, a meme read, "RCB and IPL Trophy - Socially Distanced since 2008." Another meme trended with a question, "Can RCB win an IPL trophy?", which was attached with MS Dhoni's reply on his retirement from CSK, "Definitely Not!" Another set of people made trolls on videos created by Kannada YouTube channel Metrosaga that was trolling the teams who earlier lost to RCB in the league games. A few others trended #ThankYouVirat, trolling their captain for the exit from the tournament. However, die-hard fans of the team claimed that they will come back stronger for IPL 2021.
