This year’s IPL season is on and its craze among cricket fans is already on its peak. In the match between Delhi Daredevils and Rajasthan Royals on April 11, the Delhi team had to face a miserable defeat by 10 runs.
After winning the toss, Delhi Daredevils decided to field. Rajasthan Royals scored 153 runs at a loss of 5 wickets in 17.5 overs after which the match was held up due to rain. When the match resumed, Delhi Daredevils was given a target of 71 runs to be scored in 6 overs.
The team had a horrible start. Its batsmen could only score 60 runs in 6 overs and that too at a loss of 4 wickets. Colin Munro was run out at the very first ball. In the next two overs, Glenn Maxwell and Rishabh Pant could only score 15 runs while the team needed an average of 12 runs per over to chase the target.
In the fourth over, Maxwell hit 14 runs giving some hope to his team and fans but got dismissed in the very next over. Finally, when the last over was remaining, DD needed 25 runs to win but could score only 14, facing a miserable defeat from Rajasthan Royals.
Delhi Daredevils’ defeat and their captain Gautam Gambhir soon became a hot topic of discussion on Twitter with users mocking them with all sorts of hilarious jokes and memes. Take a look at some of these tweets below:
