The Ee Sala Cup Namde meme originates from the 2018 edition of Indian Premier League. After finishing last in IPL 2017, Royal Challengers Bangalore needed a huge boost going into the next IPL i.e., IPL 11. The Kannada fans of RCB started a social media trend ‘Ee Sala Cup Namde’ meaning this time around the cup is ours. In fact, the slogan started by the fans was later adopted by official social media handles of RCB too. Unfortunately, the slogan could do no wonders for the team as they finished 6th in the next edition. Wondering why Ee Sala Cup Namde trending? Well, the answer lies in the fact that this time around the fans are hopeful of a championship finish but the 97 runs thrashing by KXIP has given the rival fans an opportunity to roast them. One twitter thread which went viral on May 25 is of the official twitter handle of CSK trolling RCB by saying ‘Ee Saala Cup Umadey’ meaning the cup is yours this year. This jibe had ignited the roast war on social media among the fans.
