The on-field rivalry between Virat Kohli and Steve Smith is always a joy to watch, as both are considered the modern day greats of the game – albeit in different formats. Who’s Better – Kohli or Smith? – has always been a hot topic among fans, but now that rivalry is not only limited to international cricket but has also become part of the Indian Premier League (IPL), where Kohli and Smith Royal Challengers lead Bangalore (RCB) and Rajasthan Royals. While there is still some time for that rivalry to unfold in this year’s IPL, the social media handles of the two franchises have already started the rivalry, poking each other on Twitter.
It all started when the IPL 2020 schedule was announced on Sunday and franchise shared match dates with their fans. RCB also belonged to several franchises doing the same and shared a small video to ask their fans which game they were most excited about.
“With the schedule for the Dream11 IPL announced, what game are you most looking forward to, 12th Man Army? Star-struckStar-struck #PlayBold # IPL2020 #WeAreChallengers,” tweeted RCB.
Rajasthan Royals decided to troll their IPL rivals RCB for using their incorrect logo, via a hilarious meme. However, their move backfired when Virat Kohli’s franchise decided to give them a taste of their own medicine.
The Bangalore franchise shared a photo of RR wicket-keeper-batsman Sanju Samson wearing a helmet with the same logo as used by RCB in their video.
“So you’re saying this is the wrong logo?” RCB fired in their response.
Here’s how the friendly chatter unfolded:

After RCB’s epic response, the dust seems to have settled between the two franchises, but it gave their fans something to talk about and flooded the post with their comments, showing their full loyalty to their franchise.
While the IPL kicks off on September 19 with a high-voltage clash between defending champions Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings (CSK), RCB and Rajasthan Royals will not face each other before October 3, with their second league game scheduled. October 17.
