In the first match of IPL played on Saturday, Royal Challengers Bangalore defeated Rajasthan Royals by seven wickets in a thrilling match. Rajasthan had scored 177 runs batting first. Bangalore were progressing towards defeat at one time, but AB de Villiers scored 55 runs with the help of six sixes off just 22 balls and put the match on his own. In the last over of this match, RCB needed 10 runs to win. At the same time, the cameraman captured one such thing in his camera which became increasingly viral on social media after the match.
During this, RCB opener Aaron Finch was seen smoking in the dressing room. He was probably smoking an e-cigarette. A video is also going viral on social media in which Finch can be seen clearly smoking. On many social media watching the video, fans also expressed great displeasure over it. Let me tell you that this is not the first time that a cricketer has been seen smoking cigarettes. Earlier 12 years ago in 2008, Australian bowler Shane Warne was also seen puffing.
