Rajasthan Royals has one of the wittiest social media accounts which frequently comes up with brilliant content which includes hilarious memes, infographics, and pictures. The Royals shared a poster of their star cricketers like Shane Watson [Member of the 2008 IPL winning Rajasthan Royals outfit], former captain Rahul Dravid and the leader who won them the IPL title: champion leg-spinner Shane Warne. The poster also included Yusuf Pathan and Graeme Smith, both of whom were part of the inaugural IPL win.

The Capitals too joined the bandwagon and shared a poster that features their current spearheads in Prithvi Shaw, South African pacer Kagiso Rabada, captain Shreyas Iyer and the former member of their set-up, Kolkata Knight Riders’ Andre Russell.

Kings XI Punjab’s poster looked like a sneak-peak into their future as it featured the highest wicket-taker of the recently-held ICC U19 World Cup, the newest leg-spinning sensation Ravi Bishnoi.

Bishnoi, whose story from being an U16 and U19 trial reject to becoming the heartbeat of the Indian bowling unit; one who almost led them to title glory courtesy his spell of 4/30 in ten overs is an epitome of unrelenting hard work and perseverance, will be turning out for KXIP in the upcoming IPL season after he was racked by the Anil Kumble-coached franchise for Rs 2 Crore [base price- Rs 20 Lakh].
