Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) supporters couldn’t contain their laughter upon discovering that RCB’s kite secured the second position in a kite festival organized by Star Sports in Ahmedabad, featuring kites representing all 10 IPL teams. The festival, named ‘Indian Patang League,’ took place a day before the Makar Sankranti festival, with multiple rounds of matches culminating in Sunrisers Hyderabad’s (SRH) kite emerging victorious and RCB settling for the second spot.
The news quickly circulated on Twitter, triggering humorous reactions from RCB fans, who couldn’t resist trolling the franchise for another loss, this time in a kite festival.

The second-place finish behind SRH prompted memories of the 2016 IPL final defeat, where Virat Kohli’s team lost to David Warner’s side in Bangalore.
RCB’s setback in the kite festival added a new layer of jest to the team’s history, and the social media buzz continued.
The IPL 2024 auction was also discussed, highlighting RCB’s significant acquisition of Alzarri Joseph for INR 11.5 crore after failing to secure Pat Cummins. Additionally, the team welcomed Lockie Ferguson and Tom Curran to their squad for the upcoming IPL season, scheduled to kick off on March 22, 2024.
