Matthews, who did well with the ball, also ended up top-scoring for her side in the one-sided match at Mumbai. With RCB registering their second-straight loss in the tournament, fans and followers of the game were quick to respond with the hilarious meme fest on Twitter.

“We could have learnt to put down a better score. We have to accept this defeat and come back better. 2-3 batters got into 20s but could not make it count including myself. We do have a good bowling side, we have 6-7 bowling options and we can’t say much to the bowlers when the batters are not putting up the runs. It is a pretty short tournament and we can’t dwell on it, even in franchise cricket if you start winning then you can go on a run. Lots of positives in the form of Kanika and Shriyanka’s batting after the top order collapse, really happy with the way they batted,” RCB captain Mandhana said after the match.

Harmanpreet Kaur, the winning captain said, “I think batting was the same, we bowled better in the first game than today, but we did well to restrict them to a small score. We just backed ourselves to chase, everyone in the team are just happy to do it their way and they’re enjoying themselves. It happens in T20s (on the slower over-rate), you need to give that extra minute to the bowlers.”
