Royal Challengers Bangalore fans are going above and beyond to attend the IPL 2022 matches of their favourite team and when their main man Dinesh Karthik shines and acknowledges their presence in the stadium, it becomes all the more special for the Faf du Plessis camp. On Saturday, RCB defeated Delhi Capitals after Karthik launched a ferocious counter-attack and shared a 97-run partnership with Shahbaz Ahmed (32 not out off 21 balls). Hailed as the “finisher” of IPL 2022, Karthik slammed five sixes and as many boundaries to score an unbeaten 66 in 34. With a target of 190 on the board, Delhi came achingly close but fell short by 16 runs. While RCB’s fourth win of the tournament was celebrated widely, a banner held by RCB fans during the exciting clash went viral on microblogging site Twitter.
“Drove 1000 kms for you RCB!!!” the banner read.
