The 14th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) is all set to get underway on April 9. Mumbai Indians (MI) and Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) will lock horns in the opening game of the tournament in Chennai. The IPL fever has taken over the country and the banters have already begun on social media. Interestingly, Twitter has also introduced team jerseys and is set to make the most of the T20 extravaganza.

Whenever a team’s name is written, their jersey will be seen in the tweet and the fans are loving the new development. However, Twitter has made a blunder in the process as when someone types RCB on Twitter, it shows the jersey of the Chennai Super Kings (CSK). It didn’t take much time for the fans to identify the mistake and they have started trolling RCB already.

Interestingly, CSK’s official Twitter handle has also hilariously trolled Twitter and RCB pointing out the mistake. “Ok. We understand #yellove is everywhere but.. hey @Twitter,” CSK wrote while replying to a fan asking if the franchise is lending its jersey to RCB. CSK hilariously also came up with a meme later involving superstar Rajnikanth to troll the Virat Kohli-led side.

Rather RCB tweeted with the #PlayBold but didn’t recognise the CSK jersey appearing besides it and the fans are busy highlighting the same to them.

When will RCB and CSK face in IPL 2021?

As far as the IPL 2021 is concerned, the fans will get to see Virat Kohli and MS Dhoni locking horns on April 25 at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. Both the sides will face each other in the second leg on May 23 which is also the last league game of the season.

Kohli and Dhoni share immense admiration for each other and it is a treat for the fans to watch them play together and against each other. CSK have had the wood on RCB over the last few seasons, however, Kohli and his men won one of the encounters last year and would be eager to win both the matches this time around.
