Deepika tweeted about the Challenger’s and Rajasthan Royals match in 2010.
Royal Challengers Bangalore lost to Kolkata Knight Riders on September 20th at Shake Zayed Stadium with 9 wickets. After winning the toss and choosing to pick the bat first, the RCB was shot down at 92 with 19 overs. Varun Chakravarthy’s magical spell did not allow them to heal. Devdutt Padikkal won the Challenger’s top score in 22 runs before Rocky Ferguson I fired him.
The Knights chased the target with 10 overs. The defeat kept the RCB in third place on the point table, but it was the worst net run rate of all eight teams in the tournament. Meanwhile, one of Deepika Padukone’s old tweets goes round after Virat Kohli and Co fell into a chambolic defeat in Abu Dhabi on Monday.
Deepika’s tweet surrounds the 2010 RCB-Rajasthan Royals match at M China’s Wammy Stadium in Bangalore. In that match, the Challengers bowled the Royals 92 after Praveen Kumar and Anilkumble each won three wickets.
But it is Jacques Kallis, Won the Best Player Award. Former South African cricketer won undefeated 34-ball 44 in seven fours, and also picked up important wickets from RR opener Naman Oja and Australia’s Damien Martyn.
“92 !! That’s a score !? It’s a way to go to RCB! I’ve been with everyone … I’m watching it live every second!” I read Deepika’s tweet. The Challenger, led by Kumble, then won the game with 10 wickets.

Meanwhile, after Monday’s defeat, RCB Skipper Kori said his team was unable to join the necessary partnerships. At the age of 32, he saw defeat as a “call for awakening” for Challenger to enter the end of the cash-rich and prestigious league business.
“It was important to build a good partnership. I didn’t expect the dew to come out so quickly. I lost 5 wickets from 42 to 1 to 20 odds. You may have this at the beginning of the second leg to know if you should work on it, “Virat was reportedly told at a post-match presentation ceremony.
