The Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020 is going to start soon and the franchises are not leaving any stone unturned in interacting with the fans using their social media accounts. But how will you react if we tell you that one of the franchises has deleted all its posts and profile photo from its social media accounts, such as Instagram, Facebook and Twitter.
We are talking about Virat Kohli led Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB). The IPL franchise surprised everyone on Wednesday as there were 0 posts remaining on its social media account. What was more surprising was the fact that the RCB skipper Virat Kohli too was unaware of this recent development. He was left in a state of shock after he saw the changes on the social media account of his IPL team.
Virat Kohli took to Twitter to express his sense of astonishment and disbelief as he wrote, “Posts disappear and the captain isn’t informed. @rcbtweets, let me know if you need any help.”
Indian cricketer Yuzvendra Chahal and South African cricketer AB de Villiers also expressed surprise over this latest development.
As per the sources, all this has happened because the name of the franchise is going to change to Royal Challengers Bengaluru from Royal Challengers Bangalore. This means that we may get to see RCB players in a new jersey with a new logo. Recently, the franchise has signed a three-year deal with the Muthoot Fincorp as the title sponsor.
For past few years, the performance of RCB has been well below the mark and despite being the finalists for three times they have not been able to win an IPL title till now. However for the past three years, their performance has been pretty bad as they were last in the points tally in 2017, at the 6th position in 2018 and once again, at the last spot in 2019.
Will RCB win IPL this time? What do you think?
