RCB Men’s Team Gives Guard Of Honour To Smriti Mandhana-Led WPL 2024 Champions, Video Goes Viral- WATCH


Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB) may not have been able to clinch an Indian Premier League (IPL) title yet but their women’s side already have a Women’s Premier League (WPL) title to their name, having won the second edition of the tournament. At the RCB unboxing event in Bengaluru on Tuesday (March 19), the men’s team who have participated in every season of the IPL since its inception in 2008, without ever being able to taste success, gave a guard of honour to the Smriti Mandhana-led side with the WPL trophy in their hands.

The video of the men’s team recognising the women’s team’s efforts and honouring their WPL 2024 win has gone viral on social media. 

RCB Officially Change Name To Royal Challengers Bengaluru

While earlier the franchise had hinted at a name change in a video posted on their official social media handle, they officially changed the name at the RCB Unbox event on Tuesday. RCB, which earlier stood for Royal Challengers Bangalore, now stands for Royal Challengers Bengaluru. The franchise also unveiled a new logo and a brand new jersey which will be effective immediately. However, the acronym of the team stands as it is.

RCB feature in the IPL 2023 opener against Chennai Super Kings (CSK) at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai on Friday (March 22). While RCB have never been able to have their hands on the trophy, they will be meeting five-time champions CSK in the opening clash of the season. Virat Kohli, who had cited personal reasons to stay out of the home test Series against England, and welcomed a baby boy with Anushka Sharma in February, will be back in action with this game.
