Bengaluru: Besides possessing the likes captain Virat Kohli, RCB has many all-rounders like AB de Villiers, Marcus Stoinis, Moeen Ali and Shimron Hetmeyer. However, RCB could not make it into the payoffs much to the disappointment of fans. Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) former co-owner Vijay Mallya posted on tweet stating, “Always a great line up but sadly on paper only. Devastated with a wooden spoon”
After RCB finished at the bottom of the points table this IPL season, skipper Virat Kohli posted a picture on Instagram thanking the team's fans for their support saying "Thank you guys for all the love & support - the entire team including the fans, the ground staff & the support staff! Promise to come back stronger next year”. He posted this along with a photo taken at the Chinnaswamy stadium which showed fans holding a banner that read: "We'll always keep our heads high, our love for RCB will never die”.
Reacting to this post, Vijay Mallya posted on Twitter expressed his disappointment over another forgettable season for his former franchise.
RCB was unable to win a single game in their first six encounters. Though RCB made a comeback with the introduction of Dale Steyn, who replaced the injured Nathan Coulter-Nile, they were once again found wanting when the seamer had to return after sustaining a shoulder injury. Sporadic heroics by the star-studded line-up could only lead to five victories for the side by the end of the league stage.
