Netizens slam RCB for another home defeat

Quinton de Kock's impressive 81 off 56 balls and Nicholas Pooran's quickfire 40 off 21 balls powered LSG to a competitive total of 181/5. Despite Mahipal Lomror's brief aggressive innings of 33 off 13 balls for RCB, the team faltered under the pressure of LSG's bowling attack, especially Mayank Yadav's scintillating spell of 3/14.

Netizens were quick to express their disappointment and frustration with RCB's inconsistent performance. Many took to social media to criticize the team's batting collapse and questioned the decision-making during the crucial phases of the match.

The introduction of spinners Manimaran Siddharth and Krunal Pandya by LSG caught RCB's top-order off guard. Although Faf du Plessis and Virat Kohli tried to counterattack, their dismissals at crucial junctures derailed RCB's chase. Mayank Yadav's raw pace further compounded RCB's woes, claiming key wickets of Glenn Maxwell, Cameron Green, and Rajat Patidar.
