'Rohit Vadapav! ' - Supporters at M. Chinnasamy Stadium mocked the captain of Mumbai Indians during their season opener.

The 16th season of the Indian Premier League has gotten off to a great start, with supporters relishing the return to the home-and-away format after a lengthy absence. Fans of cricket are gathering in large numbers at the stadiums to cheer on their favorite teams and witness their victories. A crowd at the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru were likewise ecstatic after their team’s season opener against Mumbai Indians, which RCB won by eight wickets.

In addition to the cricketing activity that made headlines during the game, a video in which fans mock the Mumbai Indians and India skipper Rohit Sharma has gone viral on social media. In the video, a group of spectators can be heard screaming “Rohit Vadapav” after Mumbai suffered a devastating defeat at the hands of the home team.
In the opening match, the captain of the Mumbai Indians was removed after scoring just one run off ten balls. Sharma was fortunate during his brief stay at the crease, as he escaped a run-out opportunity in the second over and was then dropped by Mohammed Siraj in the fifth over after colliding with Dinesh Karthik.

Nevertheless, the opener was unable to capitalize on his opportunities and was dismissed in the sixth over after edging Akash Deep’s delivery straight to wicketkeeper Dinesh Karthik. Since 2017, the 35-year-old has struggled with the bat in the IPL, averaging in the low 20s over the past six seasons.

The last time he made a half-century in the IPL was in 2021, and he only managed 268 runs in 14 innings during Mumbai’s poorest season ever in 2022, as they finished dead last in the standings.

Virat Kohli and Faf du Plessis lead the run chase for RCB.
After being given the option to bat first, Mumbai’s batsmen struggled against the dangerous bowling of RCB and were reduced to 48/4 after 8.5 overs. Tilak Varma’s dazzling 84* off 46 balls enabled them to a respectable score of 171/7.

RCB’s opening pair of Virat Kohli and Faf du Plessis amassed 148 runs for the first wicket in just 89 balls in response to Mumbai’s total. Du Plessis went on to hit 73 runs off 43 balls, while Kohli remained undefeated on 82 runs off 49 balls to enable his team reach the goal with 22 balls remaining. Du Plessis was named Player of the Match for his outstanding batting performance and his sensational catch of Hrithik Shokeen during the first innings.
