Amidst IPL 2024 struggles RCB players seek blessings at Siddhivinayak Mandir

Ahead of their IPL 2024 encounter against the Mumbai Indians at the Wankhede Stadium on April 11, Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB) players, including MahipalLamror, Karn Sharma, VyshakVijayakumar, and SuyashPrabhudesai, embarked on a visit to the renowned Shree Siddhivinayak Mandir in Mumbai.

The RCB squad, fresh off their fifth match of the season against the Rajasthan Royals in Jaipur, which ended in a defeat, took a brief respite from training to seek blessings at the Siddhivinayak Mandir.

MahipalLomror shared a glimpse of their visit on his Instagram story, where Vyshak, Karn, Suyash, and himself were captured inside the premises of the temple, paying reverence to Lord Ganesha.

Royal Challengers Bengaluru have encountered a challenging campaign, managing only one victory out of five matches played thus far in the IPL 2024 season. Their journey began on a sour note with a loss to the Chennai Super Kings in the tournament opener.

However, the team, led by Faf du Plessis, found redemption with a triumph over the Punjab Kings, fuelled by a stellar performance from Virat Kohli, who crafted a match-winning innings of 77 runs from 49 balls while chasing a target of 177 runs. Subsequently, RCB suffered three consecutive defeats against the Kolkata Knight Riders, Lucknow Super Giants, and Rajasthan Royals.
