Virat Kohli-led Royal Challengers Bangalore is on a roll this year as they have secured the second position on the points table after winning 7 matches out of the 10 that they have played. The last match that they played was against Kolkata Knight Riders and the manner in which RCB defeated KKR was no less than a massacre.
The Kolkata team decided to put up a target on the board after winning the toss but it was certainly a pretty bad decision. Mohammed Siraj of RCB bowled brilliantly in the match which was played at Sheikh Zayed Cricket Stadium. While bowling the second over of the innings, Siraj took two wickets of Rahul Tripathi and Nitish Rana without even giving single run and his next over was a maiden as well. Md. Siraj became the first pacer to bowl two maiden overs consecutively in the history of IPL and at the end of the match, he went back with 3 wickets in his four overs conceding only 8 runs for which he was adjudged as the player of the match.
However other than Mohammed Siraj, another person who was noticed the most by netizens was KKR coach Brendon McCullum who was busy making notes while his batsmen were returning to the dug-out in small intervals.
Twitterati took this opportunity to have some fun at the expense of Brendon McCullum and soon he became a meme material. Check out some of the selected reactions:

KKR was not even able to cross the 100 run mark as the whole team was out for 84 runs in the 20 overs after losing 8 wickets. RCB easily chased the target at the loss of two wickets with 6.3 overs remaining in their innings.
RCB has a pretty good chance of winning the IPL this year. What do you think?
