Kohli took to twitter and wrote: “Posts disappear and the captain isn’t informed. ? @rcbtweets, let me know if you need any help.” Royal Challengers Bangalore, who has not been able to win IPL since its beginnings in 2008, changed the name of its official twitter handle raising a lot of speculations.
On twitter, the display picture and cover picture while the name was just changed to Royal Challengers. The same has been done on Instagram and Facebook accounts.
Meanwhile, Indian leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal was also shocked. He tweeted: “Arey @rcbtweets, what googly is this? ? Where did your profile pic and Instagram posts go? ?”
Also, AB de Villiers, who plays for RCB, expressed shock at the development which came weeks ahead of the beginning of IPL 2020. AB de Villiers said in a tweet: “Folks at @rcbtweets, what’s happened to our social media accounts? ? Hope it’s just a strategy break. ??”
The actions come a day after the Bengaluru-based franchise signed Muthoot Fincorp as its title sponsor for IPL 2020. On Tuesday, RCB announced three-year partnership with Muthoot Fincorp Ltd, a part of the Muthoot Pappachan Group, also known as Muthoot Blue.
