In a match, where a win was quintessential for Royal Challengers in order to make it to the playoffs stage, the star-studded failed to chase a meek target of 147 as they fell short by just 12 runs in the end. Twitterati had a field day, of course, trolling RCB's repeated failure brutally.
Brief scores: Sunrisers Hyderabad 146/10 (Kane Williamson 56, Shakib Al Hasan 35; Mohammed Siraj 3/25, Tim Southee 3/30) lost to Royal Challengers Bangalore 141/6 (Virat Kohli 39, Colin de Grandhomme 33; Shakib Al Hasan 2/36, Sandeep Sharma 1/20) by 5 runs.
Hopefully, the selectors are following him closely!
This tweet cracked me up!

Another bowler who is having a great season!
How good is Kane Williamson? Let's ask Vettori!
Simon: "How do you get Kane Williamson out?"— Nikhil Deshpande (@Chaseeism) May 7, 2018
Daniel Vettori: "We just get the other end. I don't know how to get Kane out. Get the other batsmen and just let him do what he wants. "
If there ever was an honest answer. #SRHvRCB #IPL2018
Brilliant innings by Williamson, AGAIN!
Fifty up for Kane Williamson! Leading from the front...#SRHvRCB— Nikhil Mane 🏏🇦🇺 (@nikhiltait) May 7, 2018
Fielding standards this season has been really bad!
The stat of Hyd being the venue for the most dropped catches this season is just weighted by a poor fielding Hyd side. Stats should also account for the basic split between SRH and non SRH dropped chances, to better indicate the role stadium conditions play, if any. #SelectDugout— Aakash Puttige (@youreontv) May 7, 2018
Then this happened!
Rashid Khan after his team let him down by dropping catches...
You won't catch the catches...He castles the stumps to get his wicket...Rashid Khan— .... (@ynakg2) May 7, 2018
When catches off @rashidkhan_19 are dropped, he comes with wicket of important one @ABdeVilliers17 by bowling him. @imVkohli & @ImMananVohra were dropped off his two brilliant balls. Geniuses of cricket cannot read him. What a bowler. @SunRisers— Mohammad Saber Yaqin (@YaqinSaber) May 7, 2018
After all those catches dropped, what a catch by Yusuf Pathan!
Rashid Khan keeping it simple. No need to catch when I will bowl you out. Stunner. #IPL— cricBC (@cricBC) May 7, 2018
Best death bowler in the world for a reason!
Bhuvneshwar Kumar take a bow. Defended 12 off the last over with ease with 2 set batsman. Nailed 6/6 yorkers @BhuviOfficial— Punit (@aspiringmedic08) May 7, 2018
