The Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) led by Pat Cummins suffered a humiliating defeat to Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) on Thursday at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium. Despite an achievable target of 206 runs, RCB managed to restrict SRH to 171/8.

SRH’s top order batsmen Abhishek Sharma, Travis Head, Aiden Markram and Heinrich Klaasen who played crucial games in previous matches failed to perform well. The explosive batters failed to perform under the magic spins of RCB’s Karn Sharma, Cameron Green and Swapnil Singh.

The loss left the host heartbroken especially SRH owner Kavya Maran who is often seen cheering and celebrating for her franchise. Viral pictures and videos from last night’s match show SRH owner Kavya Maran heartbroken. 

Kavya was left stunned by the quick fall of wickets and her irritated expression has gone viral on social media, leading to hilarious memes online.

“Kavya Maran hai toh bohot sundar💗 But Still, Full Support to RCB,” commented a Virat Kohli fan. Another fan commented, “Kavya Maran is the new brand ambassador of Parle-G.”

“Happy for #RCB win but so sad for #KavyaMaran because the loss of #SRH,” commented another fan.

A fourth fan, “And Pat Cummins was silenced for the first time. Aisa pehli baar hua hai 17-18 saalon mein.”

Despite the loss, SRH is topping the points table and is most likely to become the first team to enter the playoffs. On the other hand, RCB is at the lowest points table and has very less chances of going into the playoffs.
