Bengaluru: Days after the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) ended their IPL 2019 season with a victory over Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH), an RCB fan grabbed the headlines after she was found cheering the team with excitement at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium on Saturday (May 4).

While the win could have give Virat Kohli and the team something to feel good about, what stole the cricket followers’ hearts was an RCB fan. During the RCB's last match of the season, against SRH in Bengaluru, a camera panned towards a girl wearing a red off-shoulder top, and she has now taken the internet by storm.

It is reportedly said that the woman's followers on social media increased a thousand fold and have even crossed 250,000.

But, as is the case with all celebrities, several fake accounts too have come up with her name. She then went on to issue a clarification on her Instagram to inform her followers about the fake accounts.


RCB ended their season at the bottom of the table with just five wins in the 14 matches they played. RCB captain Virat Kohli and teammate AB de Villiers even posted an apology to the fans through the franchise's social media handle ahead of their final game against SRH.
