Who is ready for IPL 2020? The excitement of IPL 2020 season can be seen on social media platforms where players talk about their impressive journey of IPL 2020.
IPL fans, on the other hand, are finalizing their day-offs at work. Speaking of IPL teams, they are all charged up and updating social media games constantly. Meanwhile, Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) was seen following an unprecedented route.
If you are following RCB social media handles, you might have noticed that the franchise removed their profile picture and posts from different social media accounts including Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram. Sounds strange, isn’t it? Well, it’s not just the fans pondering over the disappearance, but the cricketing fraternity reacted on the same as well.
Virat Kohli, Captain of RCB, tweeted if the RCB team needed any help from him.
Posts disappear and the captain isn’t informed. 😨 @rcbtweets, let me know if you need any help.

This incident was noticed after a day IPL franchise signed title sponsorship with Muthoot Fincorp for IPL 2020. The three-year partnership was announced on Tuesday, 11 February 2020.
The partnership of sponsors for the Marquee T20 side will include ‘Jersey-front’ logo replacement which will be visible on players’ training and playing jersey. And thus, the noticeable action might have been a possible rebranding activity of social media handles of RCB IPL team.
