Following the defeat of Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB) in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024 Eliminator showdown against Rajasthan Royals (RR) in Ahmedabad, Chennai Super Kings (CSK) fast bowler Tushar Deshpande took to Instagram to poke fun at RCB’s defeat. Nevertheless, Deshpande swiftly removed the post shortly after sharing it.

CSK supporters found themselves in disbelief following RCB’s victory over the reigning champions at the Chinnaswamy Stadium, which ultimately led to CSK’s elimination from the tournament.

This outcome appears to have fueled a sense of resentment among CSK fans towards both the Royal Challengers team and their supporters. As RCB’s journey in the competition concluded on Wednesday, Tushar, like many others, could not resist poking fun at them.

A meme page posted a picture of a Bengaluru railway station with a board written ‘Bengaluru Cant’. Fans took a dig at it and connected it with RCB’s loss, exaggerating the meaning of the board to ‘can not’, emphasizing that RCB can not win the IPL trophy. Tushar shared the same post on his Instagram story and later deleted it.
