IPL 2021: The second phase of this year’s IPL has already begun. Plenty of viral memes are being created after all that is happening on the pitch and off the pitch. However, RCB has made plenty of headlines in the very starting days itself. Royal Challengers Bangalore were facing Kolkata Knight Riders on Monday in their first match in the second leg. RCB was coming into the UAE leg after a brilliant first phase. Whereas KKR was not very impressive in the Indian leg.
However, RCB had won the toss and they elected to bat first. But everything did not go to the plans for the Bangalore team. One after the other, wickets just kept falling like a pack of cards. Even the likes of Kohli, Ab de Villiers, and Glen Maxwell were very unimpressive in their approach. Perhaps the slow pitch in UAE has taken a toll on the batsmen. The dry pitches offer very little help to the batsman.
In the end, the Bold Army got all out for a mere 92 runs in the 19th over of the first innings. KKR in response to that display, went on to win the match with complete ease and domination. The two-time IPL champions struck past RCB with a nine-wicket win in just 10 overs.
KKR have now improved their points tally as well as their run rate which was in minus earlier. However, RCB will be looking to forget and move on from the match. They face CSK in the South Indian derby in their next match.
IPL 2021: Kyle Jamieson cannot stop staring at Navnita Gautam
Event when RCB were busy fighting a battle on the pitch, Kyle Jamieson was busy doing something else. The New Zealand international was seen staring at Navnita Gautam in an expression of smile and awe. However, the incident occurred when the cameraman panned out the lenses towards him.
Soon the very moment became viral and everyone was talking about Jamieson and Navnita. The latter is a massage therapist that joined the RCB staff in 2017. Navina Gautam is a Canadian citizen who has also been part of the Canadian National team. However, she is also the lone female staff compared to all the eight teams.
When asked about the gender equation, Navnita said “It’s like having 20 brothers around at all times. Slowly but surely, the transition is happening. I believe that as long as the players and support staff trust your work, gender shouldn’t be an issue as we are all healthcare professionals.” However, the meme fest went gaga over the incident. Various hilarious reactions were spotted on Twitter over the exchange of smiles between Jamieson and Navnita.
