Kolkata Knight Riders and Shah Rukh Khan were brutally trolled on Tuesday as the franchise finished at the fifth spot in IPL 2020 following the one-sided contest between Sunrisers Hyderabad and Mumbai Indians in Sharjah.
With a slim chance to advance to the playoffs, KKR eyed a Mumbai Indians victory against SRH which did not happen. Riding on a superior Net run-rate, David Warner’s squad decimated the top of the table Mumbai Indians, humiliating the Men in Blue with a 10 wicket-win.
KKR’s journey ended on a disappointing note despite having 14 points in their kitty. SRH and RCB who scored as many points in the tournament secured #3 and #4 spots respectively and are to face each other on Friday.
While one expected Mumbai Indians to be on the receiving end of social media trolling, it was, in fact, KKR who faced the heat online with brutal yet hilarious memes.
But the trolling did not stop there. IPL fans and Internet trolls dug up the Wankhede Stadium (Mumbai) incident wherein Shah Rukh Khan was involved in a brawl with the security guard during MI Vs KKR match in 2012 following which he was banned from the stadium.

People drew parallels between the SRK ban from Mumbai’s Wankhede to KKR’s “ban" from the IPL 2020 playoffs coming at the hands of Mumbai Indians.
