RCB urged fans to continue the fight against coronavirus even if glory is delayed. The voice-over says that there are going to be ups and downs and twists, but the fight cannot stop.
Excerpt of the voice-over: Ups and downs, twists and turns, cricket is beyond just wickets and runs. Millions of fans and all of their prayers backing their team and their favourite players to win. Isn’t that why we’ve always played? And we will continue, even if glory is delayed. No matches, only highlights. No parties, lonely street lights. No podiums, empty stadiums. In our homes, we must stay. 2020 – what a year! Been a tough one for everyone. The doctors and the police are playing bold every day.
On the cricketing front, ICC has put all cricket matches on hold, while IPL has postponed the tournament till ”further notice”.
