The latest trend across social media is of people posting then-and-now profile pictures, a collage of the one from 10 years ago and the current display pic. The ‘#10yearchallenge’ has taken the social media by storm. The trend sees people posting a picture of themselves from 2009 alongside a current picture of themselves. And on Thursday, the Indian Premier League franchise Chennai Super Kings also tried their hands at the latest trend.
CSK returned to the league last year after serving a two-year suspension. In 2015, the Men in Yellow along with Rajasthan Royals were banned by the Supreme Court of India on corruption and match-fixing charges. But the absence made little difference as the Chennai-based outfit defied all the odds to win the title. In the process, they became just the second team after Mumbai Indians to win the IPL thrice.
Now coming to the meme, the defending IPL champions shared their own version of the 10-year challenge with a video of their theme song ‘whistle podu,’ featuring their talismanic skipper MS Dhoni.
“Social media challenge fads come and go. But this…is us. Now…and always. #WhistlePodu turns 10. #10YearChallenge,” wrote Chennai Super Kings on Twitter sharing the 2009 and the latest version of whistle podu song.
Here is the video:

Chennai Super Kings build a strong squad for 2019 season:
The three-time IPL champions, who are known for retaining the core of the team, have yet again put their trust on the core and retained their experienced players. Before the auction, they released three players. England pacer Mark Wood was let go of along with two domestic players Kanishk Seth and Kshitiz Sharma.
With already a strong squad at their disposal, the Super Kings did some smart business in the auction for the upcoming season. They bought Mohit Sharma and Ruturaj Gaikwad in the auction for Rs 5 crore and 20 lakh respectively to complete their squad which looks much more balanced now.
Meanwhile, this year’s IPL will get underway on March 23.
