RCB has yet not won a single title of any of the previous IPL matches. And that disappointment could be seen in the fans through their tweets.
Despite the online trolling, the team captain Virat Kohli was super excited with the new logo and also shared his excitement with the fans on his twitter handle while subtly acknowledging the reactions around it.
