"Shut your mouth and play…"- Krishnamachari Srikkanth criticizes Virat Kohli’s RCB after their exit from IPL 2024


Former India captain Krishnamachari Srikkanth has brutally attacked Royal Challengers Bengaluru after their exit from the ongoing Indian Premier League 2024 (IPL 2024).

RCB’s dream of winning their maiden IPL title came to an end on Wednesday (May 22) with a loss against Rajasthan Royals in the tie at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. RCB were the favorites to win the match after winning six matches in a row. However, their form counted for little as Rajasthan Royals thrashed them by four wickets.

While RCB is receiving praise from various quarters for the way they turned their campaign around and qualified for the playoffs against all odds, Srikkanth couldn’t help but attack them and their fan base. The former India opener said RCB should not have “posted unnecessary videos or shown too much” after beating Chennai Super Kings last week.

“In life, when you’re doing well, keep your mouth shut and move on, when you make noise about something you’re doing, you can’t do that job.” Srikkanth said on his YouTube channel.

Furthermore, Srikkanth said that Ravichandran Ashwin destroyed RCB only because they were boasting too much after the win over CSK. Ashwin played a key role in Rajasthan Royals’ victory by taking two crucial wickets and conceding just 19 runs. The veteran spinner was chosen as the Man of the Match for his display.

“They were posting unnecessary videos and bragging too much (after the CSK win). That’s why (Ravichandran) Ashwin came and destroyed them, that’s why in cricket you have to shut your mouth and play.

“If you played well, congratulations, if you played badly, accept criticism, but you should never open your mouth and show aggression. They continue to congratulate each other for qualifying for the playoffs and for the great comeback, CSK and MI have done it.” many more times.”

“CSK and Mumbai came out of nowhere and won titles. These guys won six matches and as soon as they qualified they were eliminated.” Srikkanth said.

Rajasthan Royals will now take on Sunrisers Hyderabad in the second qualifier for a place in the final. The winner of the game will face Kolkata Knight Riders in the title final.
