While Royals Challengers Bangalore (RCB) fans had little reason to smile after their humiliating nine-wicket defeat against Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) on Monday. However, a funny incident hogged the limelight during the match where Kyle Jamieson was spotted flirting with RCB’s medical team girl.
The incident happened in the 10th over of the first innings when RCB were 53/4. At that moment, the cameraman focused on the RCB’s dugout where Jamieson was seen padded up, ready to walk in at the No. 8 spot. The camera caught clear pictures of the lanky pacer smiling while looking at the team’s massage therapist Navnita Gautam.
No sooner this thing was aired during the match, it went viral on social media. The pic invited various comments from netizens mocking the RCB pacer- ‘men will be men’ to Jamieson ‘playing his own match’ to ‘team at 53/4, but Jamieson kept himself busy’.

Kyle Jamieson had a dismal show with the ball as he returned with figures 2-0-26-0. He was uneconomical with the ball as he returned with an economy of 13.00.
RCB skipper Virat Kohli disappointed with teams’ performance
Royal Challengers Bangalore captain Virat Kohli sounded very disappointed with the batting collapse against Kolkata Knight Riders. According to Kohli, the failure against KKR was a wake-up call for his side. Electing to bat, RCB were all out for a paltry 92 in Kohli’s 200th IPL game. KKR chased down the target in 10 overs. Kohli rued the team’s mistakes in the opening match of IPL Phase 2.
“We were 42 odd for one and then lost about five wickets within 20 runs, which is a very difficult situation to come back from. Bit of a collapse there for us, bit of a wake-up call and might as well have this at the start of the second leg so that we know exactly what we need to work on,” Kohli said in the post-match press conference.
