Virat Kohli-led Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) managed to qualify for the playoffs but didn’t go long enough, as they lost the match against Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) in the Eliminator.
The loss left RCB players, and its fans heartbroken, as the team’s effort went futile and their moment to lift IPL trophy still stands postponed.
RCB had a fantastic start to the tournament where they won seven of their first 10 matches.
Probably, the young guns couldn’t manage a stable head thereon and lost four consecutive league matches. However, they still managed to qualify for the playoffs as the Net Run-Rate favoured them.
No sooner their journey to the playoffs began, it saw a halt in RCB’s very first match. They failed with the bat and came well with the ball, which brought the match close-necked, but not completely in RCB’s favour.
Following the loss, the journey for the IPL 2020 season ended for RCB, following which captain Virat Kohli tweeted an emotional tweet on his account. The tweet was captioned, "Together through the highs and lows. It's been a great journey for us as a unit. Yes things did not go our way but proud of the whole group. Thank you to all our fans for your support. Your love makes us stronger. See you all soon. #PlayBold @RCBTweets.”
The men in red will surely try to come back stronger next season.
