Winners of the last three IPL editions engage in a banter on Twitter

It all started when Mumbai Indians quoted a picture of their top three all-rounders.

Indian Premier League (IPL) is more than a decade old now and not just the players but the franchises enjoy a certain comfort and report with each other as well. We’ve often seen them laud each other, their players for their performance and even during offseason they make sure the fans are into it with banters on social media. Something similar transpired yesterday as the last three champions Mumbai Indians, Sunrisers Hyderabad and Chennai Super Kings had fun on Twitter.

It was a post from Hardik Pandya that served as the base. Mumbai Indians quoted the picture of their trio of all-rounders – Hardik Pandya, Krunal Pandya and Kieron Pollard and wrote, “Find a better allrounder trio. We will wait  #CricketMeriJaan @hardikpandya7 @KieronPollard55 @krunalpandya24.”

Thousands of fans responded to the tweet but the one response that caught the eye came was from the champions of the 2016 season – SunRisers Hyderabad. They quoted MI’s tweet and responded with a picture of their trio of all-rounders – Shakib Al Hasan, Rashid Khan & Mohammad Nabi. The caption read, “The wait is over! 😉”

The Mumbai Indians had to make a better comeback so they pulled out their biggest achievement – the three IPL trophies and replied saying, “The wait goes on…🏆🏆🏆.”

To turn the heat up, Chennai Super Kings, the side with arguably the largest and most dedicated fans, joined the banter with a strange tweet. They posted a photo of their captain, MS Dhoni who was there thrice in it and captioned – “Moondru Mugam (which translates to ‘three faces’ and used three 🦁 faces) #Thala #WhistlePodu”

As far as the upcoming season of the IPL is concerned, the franchises are busy finalizing the list of players they want to retain and let go. The window for retention and trade ends on November 15. Given the approaching circumstances in India, there is a good chance that the league will be preponed to pave the way for that the auction for IPL 2019 will be held mid-December.
