Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) have sent fans in a tizzy after the Indian Premier League (IPL) franchise’s social media handles went blank. While RCB’s display picture on Twitter and Facebook were removed, all their posts on Instagram were deleted. Moreover, the Facebook account was without a logo but had Bangalore in its name.
RCB logos have been removed from its social media handles, including Facebook.
RCB and Delhi Capitals are the only two sides that have not won the IPL crown in the past 12 seasons. While Delhi Daredevils got its name changed to Delhi Capitals, RCB may be planning on the same lines.
India cricketer Yuzvendra Chahal also took to Twitter to express his concern. His post read, “Arey @rcbtweets, what googly is this? Where did your profile pic and Instagram posts go?

Meanwhile, RCB has inked a new three-year deal with Muthoot Fincorp Ltd., popularly known as Muthoot Blue.
Not long ago, at the 2019 auctions, RCB roped in Sri Lanka’s Isuru Udana, South African pacer Dale Steyn, Australian seamer Kane Richardson and Australian batsman Josh Philippe, but the biggest buy this season for the Virat Kohli-led franchise was getting South African veteran Chris Morris on board for a whopping Rs 10 Cr.
Will the new name and branding change the fortunes of the southern franchise?
