In IPL 2023, on Sunday, Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) fans were left disappointed when the Gujarat Titans defeated their team. With this make-or-break match, Bangalore’s team was eliminated from the tournament. If Bangalore had won, they would have secured their spot in the playoffs, but their loss benefited Mumbai, and Rohit’s team made it to the playoffs with 16 points. On the other hand, Bangalore ended their campaign with 14 points. Now, Mumbai will face Lucknow Super Giants in the eliminator.
Navin-ul-Haq Made a Joke?
Before this match, RCB fans speculated that Bangalore’s team would secure a victory against Gujarat at their home ground. In this scenario, Bangalore would have faced Lucknow in the eliminator, giving fans a chance to witness Virat Kohli vs Gautam Gambhir and Navin-ul-Haq. However, that did not happen. While Bangalore fans were disappointed, Navin-ul-Haq from Lucknow shared a funny meme on his Instagram story after Bangalore’s loss.
The Funny Meme
The meme features a person laughing out loud and clapping hands. It gives the impression that he is teasing Kohli and his team, celebrating RCB’s defeat. Prior to this, Navin-ul-Haq had faced heat from fans in a few matches. When he fielded near the boundary, fans started chanting Kohli’s name to taunt Navin and Gambhir. However, it seems that Navin has taken a dig at Kohli once again with the meme he shared.
Lucknow Super Giants Join the Banter
Not only that, Lucknow Super Giants also made fun of RCB. LSJ shared a post on Instagram, showing Mumbai’s captain Rohit Sharma and Lucknow’s captain Krunal Pandya laughing. It appears as if both are celebrating RCB’s loss and Mumbai’s progress. The caption reads, “Mood” and includes a high-five emoji. LSJ’s team will face Mumbai in the eliminator on May 24.
