Rajasthan Royals (RR) made a blunder after they posted a wrong map of India while thanking their fans for support in the just-concluded Indian Premier League season 2018.
RR, who failed to lift the IPL 2018 after they crashed out of the tournament following their defeat in the Eliminator against Kolkata Knight Riders, took to their official Twitter handle to thank its fans for the support. They tweeted a picture of an incorrect map of India and captioned it as: “A big shout-out and thank you to @IPL for another energetic and sensational season! Look forward to several more seasons to come!”
Following this tweet, fans started expressing their anger on Twitter over the incorrect map.
Shame on you , showed incorrect map of India .

Before the start of IPL 2018, RR suffered a blow after their regular skipper Steve Smith was banned by the BCCI for his involvement in ball tampering in South Africa. Ajinkya Rahane was then asked to lead the side.
