IPL 2021: RCB gets hilariously trolled by Punjab Kings on Twitter
The Australian all-rounder Glenn Maxwell has become the talk of the city after his spectacular performance along with skipper Virat Kohli, AB de Villiers and Harshal Patel.
In the inaugural match against Mumbai Indians, Glenn Maxwell proved his worth after Royal Challengers Bangalore bought him for a whopping price of INR 14.25 Crores. Glenn Maxwell cut the nose of his haters when he hit a 100 meter six in Krunal Pandya's over which almost went outside the park.
In the previous season, Maxwell represented the Rahul-led Kings XI Punjab (now Punjab Kings) in 13 games and managed to score only 108 runs and also got some criticism to his name.
After witnessing his poor performance, the franchise decided to release him ahead of the IPL 2021. Then RCB scalped the right-hander after having a bidding war with Kolkata Knight Riders and Chennai Super Kings.
In response, the 32-year-old played a vital role in the first game and a 52 run stand with Virat Kohli which brought the side back to the victory line. After the completion of the game, Royal Challengers Bangalore praised Punjab Kings (then Kings XI Punjab) for releasing the Aussie in the IPL player's auction.
Here is the tweet of Royal Challengers Bangalore:
Punjab Kings are quick to respond as RCB got a fitting reply from the Rahul-led side on Twitter.
Here is the tweet from Punjab Kings:
RCB won the game in the last ball thriller
After the dismissal of Virat Kohli and Glenn Maxwell, AB de Villiers was the only hope for the whole team and their fans. Likewise, the South African batsman didn't let them lose their hopes as he fought hard and almost took the side close to the victory line.
In the final over of the game, AB de Villiers got run out by Krunal Pandya and the game once again looked hard for both teams. Only one run needed from the last ball of the final over as RCB won the game by hitting it on the fine leg region.
Rohit Sharma had shown some heartwarming gesture by appreciating his bowlers and team as they took the game till the last ball of the game.
